The Ultimate Fighting Championship returned to Russia on Saturday with a card anchored by heavyweight contenders Alistair Overeem and Alexey Oleynik and, per the norm, the myriad of music chosen by the various fighters was as eclectic as the fighters themselves.
Overeem was triumphant, winning by first-round TKO. “The Demolition Man” had his performance bolstered by his walkout music, which was “Mombasa” from Hans Zimmer. Oleynik fought valiantly; the Russian chose “The Ballad of Fighting” from Vladimir Vysotsky as his battle anthem.
Other standout tracks of the night, which was littered mostly with Russian-based music, was “Bring Her Down (To Cripple Town)” from Rob Zombie (Roxanne Modafferi); House of Pain’s “Jump Around” (Krzysztof Jotko); and the timeless “Sandstorm” from Darude thanks to Magomed Mustafaev.
