UFC 198 on Saturday was a landmark event for the Ultimate Fighting Championship and featured some of the most prominent names in MMA history competing under the same roof. The show was anchored by Stipe Miocic’s crushing knockout against Fabricio Werdum, as he captured the UFC heavyweight title in front of 45,000 fans in Curitiba, Brazil.
The card featured an assortment of entrance music. Former Strikeforce champion Ronaldo Souza went with Fabolous’ vastly popular “It’s My Time” before he tore apart Vitor Belfort, who chose Jorge Quintero’s “300 Violins” ahead of their co-headliner. Miocic was brought to the cage by “Till I Die” from Machine Gun Kelly, and though nothing went according to plan for Leslie Smith in her clash with Cristiane Justino, she pulled out a classic for her walkout: “Break on Through (to the Other Side)” from The Doors.
There were other highlights on the musical side. Francisco Trinaldo entered to Roy Jones Jr. (“Can’t Be Touched”), while Sergio Moraes went with Pharrell Williams (“Happy”) and Renato Carneiro represented Bob Marley (“Cry To Me”).
