The Walkmen: UFC on Fox 24

By Mike Sloan Apr 15, 2017

The Ultimate Fighting Championship on Saturday returned to network television, and the talents of flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson were front and center against Wilson Reis in the UFC on Fox 24 main event at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri. Wide-ranging musical tastes were once again part of the festivities.

Kanye West and Jay-Z’s “Who Gon Stop Me” brought Johnson to the cage, as he attempted to tie Anderson Silva’s all-time record for consecutive UFC title defenses. Reis opted to go with Survivor’s oft-used “Eye of the Tiger” ahead of his clash with “Mighty Mouse,” the Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt trying to channel his inner Rocky Balboa. Meanwhile, Rose Namajunas selected A Tribe Called Quest’s “Dis Generation” in advance of her co-headliner against Michelle Waterson. Avicii’s “Feeling Good” trumpeted Waterson’s arrival.

Other standout tracks included Bob Marley’s “Ride Natty Ride” (Renato Carneiro), Weird Al Yankovic’s “Fat” (Roy Nelson), Nancy Sinatra’s “Bang Bang -- My Baby Shot Me Down” (Bobby Green), Roy Jones Jr.’s “Can’t Be Touched” (Robert Whittaker), Maino’s “Remember My Name” (Tom Duquesnoy), Kennedy’s “Karate” (Tim Elliott), Big Sean’s “Bounce Back” (Aljamain Sterling), Prof’s “Amazing” (Devin Clark), Eminem’s “Beautiful” (Anthony Smith), Built to Spill’s “Going Against Your Mind” (Nathan Coy) and The Distillers’ “City of Angels” (Ashlee Evans-Smith).

A rundown of the remaining tracks:

Ronaldo Souza: Fabolous | “My Time”
Jeremy Stephens: Gang Starr | “Work”
Alexander Volkov: 25/17 | “Mother Winter”
Patrick Williams: Fame or Juliet | “Dreams of Reality”
