Following last weekend’s invasion of Boston with UFC 118: Edgar vs. Penn II and the UFC Fan Expo rolling into town, it’s time to take a trip back to the fight card at UFC 118 and recap the walkout songs selected by each of the main card’s competitors. In addition to the UFC 118 Walkout Shirts worn by each of the fighters, the walkout music paired up with each fighter’s trek to the cage always manages to pump us up that much more.
From the soothing sounds of BJ Penn’s Hawaiian walkout tune, to some of the more blood-pumping beats like Mario Miranda’s “Ruff Ryders’ Anthem” by DMX, UFC 118 brought the heat with another wide variety of walkout songs to rage out to. Hometown hero Kenny Florian even managed to slip in an ode to Beantown by walking out to “For Boston” by the Dropkick Murphys.
