“The Underground King” Eddie Alvarez believes an entrance theme is one of the most important pieces of a warrior’s identity.
The track sets the mood in the arena, properly introduces the athlete to the fans, and, in many ways, it describes the competitor’s attitude at that very moment.
“I feel like a walkout song is all about the beat,” the 36-year-old mixed martial arts legend says. “It’s less about the words and more about the beat. It’s about what you feel inside.”
The American’s entrance themes have become reflective of both his life and historic career.
For most of his life, he used the hard-hitting banger “Victory” by Puff Daddy featuring The Notorious B.I.G. and Busta Rhymes.
This hip-hop classic may be played at many sporting events around the world now, but it has always been linked with “The Underground King” since Bad Boy Records released the song in March 1998.
