Top Eight Lamest Entrance Songs

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. (Please excuse the low quality video, but you get the idea)

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!

Jeff Monson the worst entrance music? You are an idiot
Anonymous- January 5, 2009 at 4:59 pm
i agree that mosh shouldn't be on the list, and that imagine absolutely should. he's an anarchist! he's british! he's zzzzzz..........

and shame on chuck liddell. the moment of comedic recognition is not worth having to endure the rest of the song, or to go the rest of your life admitting you could have chosen so many things, yet you chose that.

Yo, some of these shouldn't be on the list... Terry Martin walked out to Michael Jackson, Josh Neer walked out to Stone Sour, and those guys aren't on the list. Come on, now.

If you dont like Hank Jr. your not American
Paul- July 14, 2008 at 5:53 pm
You're crazy - Wild Boys is an awesome 80's song!
Beat- May 13, 2008 at 2:36 pm
Old article, but how could no one mention that thing Josh Barnett comes out to? That has to be the worst.
David- March 31, 2008 at 3:49 am
Are you crazy. Tito has the best entrance in MMA. That song pumps me up. as it does to everyone who listens to it
David- March 15, 2008 at 6:53 am
this top eight list is terrible. yeah i agree ice ice baby and YMCA are retarded but chuck only used that once and YMCA has to be a joke so i can see where yvel is coming from

In the air tonight - not the greatest but definetly not the worse, i can see why someone could get pumped to it because of the intro with the slow drum

jesus walks - good song, imo. just because u dont like tim sylvia doesnt mean you have to discredit the song

a country boy can survive- im dont like this song and would never listen to it on my ipod but it perfectly suits hughes. hearing the guitar start and then hughes walk out slowly is awesome, the lyrics really match his style

MOSH - couldnt disagree more. great beat in the background, and seeing tito come out to it hopping around and mouthing the words is awesome. i can only think of a few better eminem songs

imagine - if anyone told me someone came out to imagine i wouldve thought it was a horrible entrance too, but seeing monson at ufc 65, i actually found it pretty cool, goes well with his anarchist style. i remember seeing monson walk out so ahppy, i thought i had to root for him right away

and who said the wandys entrance agaisnt chuck sucked. that was one of the craziest entrances ive seen. sandstorm starting up slowly, wandy walking out slowly rolling his knuckles, was insane

this list is nowhere near the worst entrances

worst would be something like carlos newton coming out to bootylicious, nate mohr coming out to i dont feel like dancing, or josh koscheks retarded custom made rap song, i think the lyrics talk abot how he won his previous fights

and on another note anyone who uses that lameass fort minor song is an idiot.
T$- March 10, 2008 at 11:27 pm
if you dont realize that imagine was the baddest ass entrance music for the anarchist jeff monson- you just dont get the guy.

that made me tingly when i saw it live.
Jochem- February 20, 2008 at 5:33 pm
Lol @ Gilbert Yvel. Guys just got humor man. Since nobody here notices it, guess most people just take themselves to serious.
MKXii- February 13, 2008 at 4:54 pm
Mirko makes that song bad ass, he could come out too some Nsync and people would be afraid.
Matrix33- February 11, 2008 at 5:44 pm
And author's comments should be No 1 on the top ten most lame comments...
emem- February 11, 2008 at 3:50 pm
One of the lamest articles i ever saw.
Steve- February 10, 2008 at 6:10 pm
Didn't BJ Penn come outto Gnarls Barkley's Crazy when he fought Hughes a couple of years ago? That is a bad entrance.
Pancho Villa- February 5, 2008 at 6:01 am
"country boy can survive" is perfect for hughes and its a good song.
"in the air tonight" is a great song to pump you up, maybe not intro cuz it takes too long to get to the pump up part, but still not one of the worst.
YMCA is absolutely horrible and i think Yvel should have to come in to "its raining men" for the rest of his career.
Captain- January 25, 2008 at 12:32 am
You've gotta be kidding me. Jeff Monson coming out to "Imagine" by John Lennon was absolutely brilliant in my opinion!!! Easily one of the best entrance songs to ever come out to!!!

Also Wild Boys is a dope song.
Chris- January 24, 2008 at 11:06 pm
Worst entrance song ever award would have to go to Carlos Newton for his UFC 34 entrance theme, which was none other than Bootylicious by Destiny's Child. I don't even know how to describe how bad that is.haha
Jason- January 23, 2008 at 6:06 am
Wanderlei Silva's song choice for his recent fight with Chuck had to be one of the worst I've had to endure. Note: Its the same song heard in this SNL skit. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCIq42KXroQ

I also wish Jardine would make an entrance as the Techno Viking. Could be pretty amazing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FwsntHcWiy4

That guy looks like a retarded donkey.

Eye of the tiger / Tyson Griffin
Many Man - 50 Cent / Joe Riggs
Bad To The Bone / Karo Parisyan
Born In The USA - Bruce Springsteen / Matt Hamill (but he cant hear that so... :D )
+ Matt Hughes
Those are pretty bad too, what i can remember now.

If CagePotato is going to do Best entrance songs list I will post my top 10 to there :)
godzillad- January 5, 2008 at 7:35 am
Jake - He already came out to Vanilla Ice in one of the funniest entrances of all time. Think of the staredown between Thompson and Aleks in entrance form.
The Agent- January 4, 2008 at 4:21 pm
Limp Bizkit - head for the barricade would make a great entrance song
