What was the best Walkout Song from UFC 171?

Posted: March 26, 2014 in Cool Stuff We Like

octagonMaybe it’s just me, but I always get pissed when I’m watching a PPV at a sports bar and I can’t hear the goddamn event. The volume is so low at these places it drives me insane every time. (Side note: since it happens literally EVERY event, shouldn’t

I be a little less outraged? Perhaps.)

Aside from the commentary, this disgraceful lack of volume means I usually miss out on the walkout music too. Such was the case for UFC 171 last weekend. So I did what everyone does—I Googled the shit out of it till I found a good listing of the walkout music for the event.

I’m a big fan of the later Johnny Cash stuff, like the one Carlos Condit used. His voice at that stage of his life was pretty haunting. And as much as I’m NOT a fan of Jake Shields, you can’t dislike “Seven Nation Army,” which is just one of the best songs ever. You like old school? Well, then maybe Rick Story’s “Back in Black” or Diego Sanchez’s “We Will Rock You” might be your speed.
