UFC Fighter Makes Walkout to Skyrim Theme Song

Despite what turned out to be a lackluster main event at UFC 282, there were still many things to take away from the pay-per-view that featured Jan Błachowicz taking on Magomed Ankalaev. One of them is that the polish MMA fighter Jan Blachowicz appears to be a fan of Elder Scroll IV: Skyrim.

Blachowicz appeared on the show to contend for the vacant Interim Light-Heavyweight UFC Title. During the main event, the fighter made his entrance to the Octagon while the Dragonborn theme composed by Jeremy Soule echoed throughout the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Many fans were quick to take to Twitter to share their reaction when they heard the infamous theme song:

This is not the first time the worlds of Elder Scrolls and mixed martial arts have crossed paths. Former middleweight champion Robert Whittaker is a noted big-time gamer and a huge fan of Skyrim. So much so there is a mod for the game where you can add him as a fully-voiced NPC companion that appears in the city of Whiterun.

Despite the incredible walkout, Blachowicz would not walk away from the fight as the new interim light-heavyweight champion. Still, his walkout will no doubt be remembered by many and Blachowicz may have picked up a few fellow Dragonborn along the way. Fus Ro Duh!
