From Georges St-Pierre’s French hip-hop to Tom Lawlor’s reinvention of an old Offspring classic, UFC 154 offered more than a few musical highlights for walkout music.

UFC 154 MAIN EVENT WALKOUTS:

Georges St-Pierre – “Represailles” by Fababy

No shock here in St-Pierre’s choice of music. He loves to walk out to hip-hop and generally speaking French hip-hop at that. He’s done this for more than a few events, and has stated in interviews that he likes to change songs for each fight. Here’s his latest:

Carlos Condit – “The Ghost of Tom Joad” by Rage Against the Machine

Condit has been walking out to Rage Against the Machine since his days in the WEC, and he’s told MMAWeekly Radio in the past that Rage along with the band Rise Against tend to be his favorite training tunes. For this fight, Condit chose the track “The Ghost of Tom Joad”, a cover of an original by Bruce Springsteen, which he also used for his bout against Nick Diaz. It also happens to be UFC President Dana White’s favorite track by the political focused metal group.

UFC 154 MAIN CARD WALKOUT SONGS:

Johny Hendricks – “50 Dollars and a Flask of Crown” by Bleu Edmondson

This has been Hendricks’ choice of music for a few fights, and for the country boy from Texas it just makes all the sense in the world

Martin Kampmann – “It’s a Fight” by Three Six Mafia

Originally used in the sixth Rocky film, this track has been a staple of Kampmann’s walkouts for a while now as well. “Hit em with the left, hit em with the right, it’s a fight”. Yep, that’s about right.

Francis Carmont – “Comme Une Etoile” by Booba

Much like his teammate Georges St-Pierre, Frenchman Francis Carmont sticks to his native tongue for his walkout track. This one by Booba even incorporates some auto-tune for your ears.

Tom Lawlor – “Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)” by The Offspring

Not unlike Lawlor to pick a random track like this Offspring track, and his outfit walking out to the cage matched pretty well

Rafael Dos Anjos – “I Can’t Stop” by Flux Pavillion

For some reason this track by Flux Pavillion has become a UFC fighter favorite lately. It’s also the main sample for the Jay-Z/Kanye West collaboration “Who Gon Stop Me”, which has also made more than a few appearances at UFC events recently

Mark Bocek – “Holla At Me” by Tupac

It’s Tupac does much else need to be said?

Pablo Garza – “Lights” by Ellie Goulding

Definitely one of the more interesting choices of the night but kudos to Garza for going outside the box for his walkout music

Mark Hominick – “Kickstart My Heart” by Motley Crue

Classic from the 80's used by Hominick here, and thankfully he chose not to rock the same pants to the Octagon that bassist Mick Mars chooses to wear from time to time

UFC 154 PRELIM WALKOUT TRACKS:

Patrick Cote – “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” by Johnny Cash
Alessio Sakara – “Legions of Doom” by Audiomachine
Cyrille Diabate – “Who Gon Stop Me” by Jay-Z and Kanye West
Chad Griggs – “You’re the Best” by Joe Esposito
Sam Stout – “Mirror” by Lil’ Wayne feat. Bruno Mars
John Makdessi – “Titanium” by David Guetta feat. Sia
Rodrigo Damm – “Nuvem de Gloria” by Fernanda Brum
Antonio Carvalho – “Bulls on Parade” by Rage Against the Machine
John Maguire – “The British Are Coming” by Mr. ShaoDow
Matthew Riddle – “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida” by Iron Butterfly
Azamat Gashimov – “Flower” by Moby
Ivan Menjivar – “Chulin Culin Chunfly” by Voltio feat. Callie 13
Darren Elkins – “You’ve Got to Stand for Something” by Aaron Tippin
Steven Siler “In the Air Tonight” by Nonpoint
