Multi-platinum hip-hop recording artist Joyner Lucas has teamed up with the champion to help judge who should take the honor of having their tune played in front of the worldwide audience on October 22nd. Lucas had his hit song “I Love” used when Sterling won his bout against Yan. Post-fight, they connected to come up with this contest, as reported by TMZ.

Sterling will undoubtedly be feeling more confident than ever. He has proven himself to be better than many expected, although TJ Dillashaw is one of the division’s greatest ever.
The two fighters co-main event a super card that is headlined by Islam Makhachev trying to claim his coach Khabib Nurmagomedov‘s old title. To do so, he must defeat one of the division’s greatest ever finishers, Charles Oliveira.
In the bout immediately before Aljamain Sterling’s old foe Petr Yan and blossoming superstar Sean O’Malley face each other in what is most likely a number-one contender’s bout. With a card so packed, this contest is just another fun scrap to look out for.
