Listen to UFC 118

Aloha, star members. Welcome to the new Fightlinker website. I’m going to be doing a bigger post talking about all the changes that will be happening on the site, but one of the things I’ll mention now is that I’ll be giving you guys more star-members only content.

I spent a long time trying to figure out what to post in this section because I didn’t want to gimp the free service and unfortunately the plan to post parts of / research for the upcoming Fightlinker book didn’t work either because I’m too anal to share it until I polish that turd till it shines.

But now I think I’ve got a handle on one new thing that will be going up in here: pilot features. Types of posts I want to try out but am not sure if I want to make a regular thing. Stuff I wanna experiment with but also want to see if I can keep up with on a regular basis before showing everyone.

The first of these pilot features is the music from UFC 118. I was a huge fan of the Pacquiao Hatton 24/7 music post Esther at All Elbows put up a while ago, and still go back to listen to the playlist on a regular basis. I’ve been thinking about doing a post for the music from UFC events for a while, but fighters don’t always have taste as good as HBO’s documentary makers. But this event had a decent selection of enjoyable music, and I laid it out in such a way that it shouldn’t be too jarring to listen to. Tell me what you guys think.

Randy Couture – Mean Streets by Van Halen
Dan Miller – Run Through The Jungle by Creedance Clearwater Revival
Demian Maia – Viva Bandida by Lobao
Kenny Florian – For Boston by Dropkick Murphys
Marcus Davis – Jump Around by House of Pain
John Salter – Attack by 30 Seconds to Mars
Joe Lauzon – Move by Thousand Foot Crutch
Nick Osipczak – Jus’ A Rascal by Dizzee Rascal
Frankie Edgar – Kick in the Door by Notorious BIG
Gray Maynard – Lose My Mind by Young Jeezy
Mario Miranda – Ruff Ryders Anthem by DMX
Mike Pierce – Champions by Ron Artest
Nate Diaz – Lastonesleft by 2Pac
Amilcar Alves – Can’t Be Touched by Body Head Bangerz
James Toney – BMF by Rick Ross
BJ Penn – Hawaii ’78 by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole
BJ Penn – E Ala E by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole

At the very least, don’t miss out on checking out BJ Penn’s walk-in songs by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. It’s like they took Hawaii and squeezed the smooth tasty music juice out of it.

    My favorite walk out music is Hendo’s “Lunatic Fringe” by Red Rider. I dont know what is it about that song but it’s awesome.

  • frickshun says:

    Am I missing a link or s’thing? Or have you not restored my FUCKING STAR!!!!

  • Schrute Boxe says:

    If I already didn’t love Frankie Edgar for taking out Penn twice and having an awesome personality, his choice of walkout music would seal the deal

  • fightlinker says:

    frick: the fact that you see this post and are commenting means you have a star. As for missing a link – do you not see the grooveshark widget in the post? It might not appear if you have ad blockers in place?

  • Reverend Clint says:

    yeah what happened to the stars? liked having symbols others didnt

  • fightlinker says:

    The stars will be re-appearing next to everyone’s name in the next 48hrs-ish :-)

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    @Ryan – This seems like a neat little feature. Please keep it up!

    @Frick – I don’t use an adblocker, per se, I use a script blocker ever since the malware started a couple of months ago. If you use one too, just allow that big block next to BJ’s faded legacy poster.

  • AZ Bored says:

    I love ring entrance music, per se.

  • Blackula Jonez says:

    this was pretty dope ryan, always wanted to know the name of bj’s walk out song and nice song selection from frankie, especially the first line lol.

  • godzillad says:

    I never pictured Frankie as a “Kick In The Door” guy. He better pray he doesn’t run into Raekwon and Ghostface.

    Also, he came out to “Got Yo Self A Gun” at UFC 78, so the guy is sending mixed signals.

  • frickshun says:

    Ryan–>I see it now that I’m @ work. I’ll have to check again @ home.


  • AZ Bored says:

    Its to bad your are @ work… hope you enjoy listening to these @ home.

  • fightlinker says:

    My favorite is the Dizzy Rascal song. Well, after the BJ Penn songs. Can’t stop listening to that Israel guy now.

  • frickshun says:

    Coincidentally, I went down this afternoon to visit a few girls in the graphic design / production dept & they were listening to an entire set of Hawaiian songs on Pandora. That’s random!!

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    Ha ha!

  • DaddyPants says:

    you should do a walk out music playlist for every UFC event. great idea.
