Best MMA Entrances – Videos

Jason Mayhem Miller and an assortment of Japanese girls MMA entranceThere are a lot of pro wrestling elements that bleed over into Mixed Martial Arts. One is the glamorous WWE and wrestling entrance. While most MMA fighters are more concerned with wins and losses, some MMA fiighters make the most of their moment by creating exciting and elaborate MMA entrances. Here is a compilation of some of the best MMA entrances of all time.

Take note of a few things as you watch these videos. One, the majority of the great MMA entrances come from Japan. The Japanese have been much more diligent in blending the elements of pro wrestling and MMA together than the UFC has. Strikeforce has been known to offer some great entrances, but their small entrance ramp is really constrictive to creating any kind of spectacle. The Japanese get it right and create huge entrance ramps and runways with the sole purpose of promoting these elaborate MMA entrances. DREAM and Heroes MMA in particular are featured quite prominently in the videos. While not featured, PRIDE FC had some classic entrances in its day.

The other thing to take note of is how many of these great entrances feature Jason “Mayhem” Miller. The host of MTV’s Bully Beatdown is one of if not the best in America at creating elaborate and memorable MMA entrances. Miller is not shy about being a huge pro wrestling and passion for it has allowed him to become one of the best when it comes to entrances and promos. King Mo, Rampage Jackson, and Tito Ortiz are also big pro wrestling fans have done a great job of channeling those influences to inspire some of the greatest MMA promos and entrances of all time. Genki Sudo is the king of the entrance in Japan and also highly influenced by pro wrestling.

I understand that it could be a bit tricky to get to “pro wrestling” but the UFC could really take things to another level by embracing some of wrestling’s influences. How cool would it be to see UFC fighters walk to the octagon on a big stage and big ramp? I am not expecting to see Brock Lesnar dance down the stage with a bunch of school girls, but there are some other fighters that could really make names for themselves on entrances alone. Taking into account that Scott Coker gets it with some of the entrances I have seen in Strikeforce, it would be great to see him step up and allow his fighters to enter on a grand stage like they do in Japan. It may not be something that hardcore MMA fans want to see, but it would be something different that separates Strikeforce from the competition.
