To honor tonight's Grammy Awards, watch UFC fighters get quizzed on music history

The Grammy Awards go down tonight in New York. And that means a little Bruno Mars and Kendrick Lamar, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, Ed Sheeran and Imagine dragons, Foo Fighters and Nothing More.

Fighters tend to be music fans. If nothing else, they need to be when it comes time to pick out their walkout songs.

So ahead of the Grammys, the UFC quizzed some of its fighters on what song won “Record of the Year” at the Grammys for the 1993 awards season – the same year UFC 1 took place.

Check out the responses from the likes of heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, Stephen Thompson, Felice Herrig, Uriah Hall, Dennis Bermudez, Kamaru Usman and more when they try to guess the winner.

And when they finally get it (or are told what won), they take a crack at singing a classic cover from the late, great Whitney Houston.

Check out the Twitter video above ahead of tonight’s broadcast, on which we’ll find out the 2017 winner for “Record of the Year” between “24k Magic” by Bruno Mars, “Redbone” by Childish Gambino, “The Story of O.J.” by Jay-Z, “Humble” by Kendrick Lamar, and “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, featuring Justin Bieber. (For the record, our pick is “Despacito.”)
