A fighter’s choice in music is more often than not a matter of personal taste - unless of course you’re Rich Franklin or Dan Henderson. Neither “Ace” nor “Hollywood” had any say in their entrance music. UFC President Dana White was responsible for that.

So who has the best musical entrance? Again, it’s purely subjective. But it’s interesting to see how well fans know their favorite fighters. Below is a list of fighters as well as current or past entrance songs courtesy of The Canadian Press.

1. Rich Franklin - For Those About to Rock (AC/DC)
2. Dan Henderson - Lunatic Fringe (Red Rider)
3. Antonio Nogueira - Gimme Shelter (Rolling Stones)
4. Brock Lesnar - Shout at the Devil (Motley Crue)
5. Jason MacDonald - Turn the Page (Metallica)
6. Matt Hughes - Country Boy Can Survive (Hank Williams Jr.)
7. Houston Alexander - Bawitdaba (Kid Rock)
8. Gabriel Gonzaga - Mother (Danzig)
9. Forrest Griffin - I’m Shipping Up to Boston (Dropkick Murphys)
10. Stephan Bonner - Eminence Front (The Who)
11. Marcus Davis - Jump Around (House of Pain)
12. Randy Couture - Back in the Saddle (Aerosmith)
13. Georges St. Pierre - Sans Pression (Numero Uno)
14. Amir Sadollah - To Forgive But Not Forget (Outside)
15. Michael Bisping - Song 2 (Blur)
16. Tyson Griffin - Eye of the Tiger (Survivor)
17. Martin Kampmann - Ladies and Gentlemen (Saliva)
18. Chuck Liddell - Intro (DMX)
19. Thomas Egan - Patience (Damien Dempsey)
20. Dan Hardy - England Belongs to Me (Cock Sparrer)

I'm pretty sure Chris Leben came out to "Billy Jean" when he fought Kalib Starnes. Don't ask me how I remember that. As far as Terry Martin goes, I have no idea. I do recall Cro Cop coming out to "The Wild Boys" though.

As far as my fav. entrances. I'll go with Wanderlei coming out to "Sandstorm" and I also like Nog coming out to "Gimme Shelter." One of the greatest songs of all time.

I'd walk out to "Hallowed be thy Name" by Iron Maiden or "Bleak" by Opeth.

Most of the links I had in my post from a couple of years ago are toast, unfortunately. Here's a few that survived:

"Crom's Anvil" (theme from 'Conan the Barbarian') for Tim Boetsch.
B.J. Penn used to use "Hawai'i 78", but I'm not sure if he still does.
Georges St. Pierre used to use "Samurai", which I thought was a great choice.
and while he's not a UFC fighter, I always liked Fedor's choice of "Enae Volare Mezzo", back when he was in Pride FC.

I always find songs that I want to walk to, but the intro is too long for the song to really hit. All the smaller shows barely give you any time with your walkout song, so it's hard to pick one.

Good examples are "Shove It" by the Deftones
and "Fall Into Sleep" by Mudvayne

I'd love to use either of those, but the intros are far too long

I haven't competed in an actual event, just gym time, but I already have my walkout song picked if/when I do try to compete.

This Curse of Days - Death by Stereo

Song gets me pumped up.

As for fighters I think crocop's entrance to the PRIDE theme in his first UFC fight was pretty epic. The PRIDE theme is intense and always gets me pumped up as well.

For sure for me it's "Ain't No Sunshine" by DMX for Anderson Silva.

Pretty much sums it up for whomever he's about to fight....

Just thought of another one that is along these lines- "Reise, reise" by Rammstein always gets me pumped, but the intro for that is WAY too long

I really liked I think Spencer Fishers "God's Gunna Cut You Down" By Johnny Cash.

My personal pick would be some Korn "Somebody" or "Freak on a Leash".

My guilty pleasue pick would be "One more time" By Daft Punk

Georges St. Pierre used to use "Samurai", which I thought was a great choice.

I always just liked the entrance they had for everyone in the old skool UFC, and Yushin Okami's entrance, dont know what the songs called but its on Kill Bill and its sweet.

Forrest Griffin coming out to 'Shipping Up to Boston' was a nice touch (Drop Kick Murphys).

When is someone going to go old school and come out to The Karate Kid theme - 'You're the Best Around' . . . Now that would take balls.

Get 'em a body bag, yeah !

I was actually thinking about coming out to that song, but I'm choosing Walk by Pantera!
