I was anticipating Monson to come out to some hardcore heavy metal so when he came out to that I was like WTF. He's an intelligent guy and has great views on things but he's real intense.

What the **** is Imagine doing at number 1?!?!?!

Monson coming to the ring with that song made my top 3 list for entrance songs. Along with Rampage coming down to a Roy Jones Jr. song, and Babalu with Simon Says. (that song was perfect for him)

8. Ed Herman


We all know what the song is supposed to be about and we’re all wondering what business it has being an entrance song. It doesn’t even have a cool beat. But that didn’t stop Ed Herman from using “In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins at UFC 72. I can feel it, coming in the…okay, that’s enough.

7. Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic


Maybe Croatians are to music what Poles are to being smart. We went back to 1985 when Cro Cop came strolling out to Duran Duran’s “Wild Boys”. Sample lyric: And lovers war with arrows over, secrets they could tell. That’s so special.

6. Tim Sylvia


If it’s a statement about how he thinks people picture him, he should have picked “Bitch” by Meredith Brooks. Instead, the Maine-iac from Iowa walked out to Kanye West’s “Jesus Walks”. Check out this lyric: Try to catch it Uhhhh! It’s kinda hard, hard. If we’re talking about the punches that Randy Couture threw into your face, then sure, it is kinda hard hard. Maybe he should drop “Jesus Walks” for something that better reflects his ring entrances, like “Dude Who Looks Like He Just Shit His Pants Sashays.” (Can’t remember who does that one…)

5. Chuck Liddell


We get it. You’re the “Iceman” and the song says “ice” about fifty times. But “Ice Ice Baby” should be banned from any arena housing a cage. Alright stop, collaborate and listen. It sucks and it’s cheesy.

4. Matt Hughes


“A Country Boy Can Survive” by Hank Williams, Jr. This hillbilly lullabye is on the list partially because we’re sick of it and partially because we just hate it. Enough already. You’re a ‘country boy’. Fine. Must you abuse our ears over and over just to get your point across? I’d love to spit some Beechnut in that dude’s eyes… Yeah, that’ll teach him.

3. Tito Ortiz


While it may be appropriate to occasionally crank in your car, “Mosh” by Eminem is shitty entrance music. There’s better Eminem stuff to use and not look like such a douche. Imagine it pouring, raining down on us, mosh pits outside the oval office. You’ve got to be kidding.

2. Gilbert “The Hurricane” Yvel


He’s from Holland, but that’s no excuse. When I think of MMA, my mind immediately drifts to “YMCA”, how about you? I feel like I’m at my aunt’s birthday party in a sucky theme restaurant, not at a cage match. We’re gonna’ stay at the Y-M-C-A!

1. Jeff “The Snowman” Monson


I’m all for John Lennon and no one can dispute the merits of “Imagine”, but when Monson marched out to the social conscious ballad blaring over the loud speakers, my balls leapt to the floor and ran out the door. Imagine all the people, living life in peace. What? Then there’d be no fights, Snowman!

Yea I don't agree with that list really. Phil Collins should be number one and Lennon shouldn't be on. Monson used that song because he's an anarchist. It's not about the peace part lol.

Im surprised Ice Ice Baby was only #5, that takes the cake IMO. I mean yea, Iceman, Ice Ice Baby... but still, no.

Whoa man, knocking Imagine... that's a bit much. I rather Enjoyed that entrance. Not as much As any Bj or Fedor Entrance though, or Akiyama's for his fight with Misaki.

I don't care for hip hop and metal or rap, but if he had his reasons to chose the song (other than to try and intimidate or look tough) then that is cool with me.

IN THE AIR TONIGHT
IS Classic.

And making fun of a guy who has Eminem. Love to hear what you listen, let me guess NSYNC, Backstreet boys, Milli Vanilli?

if you ever go to an NFL game "in the air tonight" is always played before the game during warm ups, great build up to when the drums hit. "imagine", although a great song, is not one i would associate with coming out to fight. and last but not least, "wild boys" and duran duran are great(im old so i grew up on that) and im crying inside a little for the croatian comment.

Could have swore that these guys don't get to pick their entrance songs. Almost 100% certain that Dana White himself said that he is the one that picks the songs. So difficult to have anything to say about a fighter in relation to the music he walks in to, when they aren't the ones picking it.

He also came out to the Pride theme against sanchez, don't think Dana would pick that. I could see him picking some of it though.

I was wrong... I could have swore I heard Dana say he picks their entrance music but...

"Q: Are you going down the rock route or toward rap and hip-hop?
A: Both and all of it. A lot of times I will ask these guys [UFC fighters] their opinion of the music. Most of the time I will let them use the music they want. The thing that is cool about it is that it shows their personality. It could be rap, rock, classical. If we hear it and like how it sounds, we use it."
