“You can say battle or war or whatever, but in the end, it's music. It's not really violent in intent at all, it's really just about expression and celebrating that in itself.”
- Eric San
Music is often associated with war, and both were on full display Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
UFC 266 hosted 13 bouts and 26 entrance tracks, each as different as the person who selected it.
Fan-favorite Nick Diaz was one of two fighters to select a Deftones track, as he entered the Octagon to “Ceremony.” Nick Maximov was the other to rock out with the Sacramento-based group, as he went with “Digital Bath.”
Dolly Parton also made a somewhat rare appearance at UFC 266, as Cody Brundage cagewalked to the catchy “'9 TO 5.” Also in 80s flare, co-headliner Alexander Volkanovski used Men at Work’s spectacular “Down Under.”
As of publication time, the songs for Shamil Abdurakhimov and Omar Morales are unknown.
