Pick the entrance music for fighters at ‘The Ultimate Fighter Live’ finale


Sam Morris

Al Iaquinta takes part in the media “work out” before finals of 15th installment of “The Ultimate Fighter” finale Wednesday, May 30, 2012.

A fighter’s choice for a walk-in song will not necessarily impact his or her performance.

But it certainly sets the tone and gets the crowd involved, which has the power to help rally a competitor to victory.

For all the trite and overused songs like Kanye West’s “All of the Lights” and the theme from Rocky, there are diamonds in the rough like the first time Yoshihiro Akiyama walked out to Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman’s operatic song “Time to Say Goodbye” at UFC 100. Tom Lawlor also upped the ante when he walked out to Olivia Newton John’s “Physical” at UFC 139, complete with hot pink sweat bands.

If you’ve ever heard a fighter’s song and thought that you could have chosen better, now is your chance to play octagon DJ. When "The Ultimate Fighter Live" contestants walk out at the live finale at The Pearl at the Palms Friday, they’ll enter to songs selected by fans. Each fighter made his top two picks and fans can vote for their favorite on Facebook.

Log on to become part of MMA history by providing the soundtrack for one lucky fighter who takes home the six-figure contract as he's crowned "The Ultimate Fighter".
