Trip Lee track chosen by fans as UFC fighter Nate Marquardt’s next walkout song
Results are in for last week’s fan poll about what song fighter Nate Marquardt should enter the octagon to on Saturday, Dec. 19 at UFC Fight Night.
Marquardt nominated three songs to be voted on, and with 75 percent of the vote, Rapzilla readers selected Trip Lee’s “Lazarus” featuring Thi’sl, track No. 11 on his latest album, Rise. Marquardt’s Dec. 19 fight against CB Dollaway will air on FOX Sports 1 during the prelims of UFC Fight Night, which start at 5 p.m. ET.
“I’ve always liked the imagery of the dead being risen because I once was dead in my sins and now am alive through Christ,” Marquardt said about why he nominated the song.
“Lazarus” edged out Derek Minor’s “Oceans” and Flame’s “Start Over” featuring NF. The three songs appeared on Marquardt’s Christian hip-hop playlist that he shared with Rapzilla last month.
Christian hip hop played a key role in Marquardt’s comeback after a three-fight losing streak in 2013. Read his feature on Rapzilla.
