Daniel Rodriguez started his formal training in combat sports a lot later in life than most UFC Athletes. After a tough upbringing and a history of altercations in the streets, he applied that tough as nails mentality to the sport of mixed martial arts, and now he is reaping the rewards of that decision.
Rodriguez tells UFC Ultimate Sound that music impacts his life every day and that no matter what he is going through, there is always a song he can relate to that gets him through it. It’s statements like these from UFC Athletes that epitomize the value of UFC Ultimate Sound. Not only does it give fans a different perspective on their favorite athletes, but it makes fans feel like they are training right alongside their favorite UFC Athletes. This allows fans to take their motivation to a whole new level.
Most of Rodriguez’s playlists consist of rap and hip hop, but when it comes time to let loose and celebrate the hard-earned victories, he likes to blast Latin music. La Chona by Los Tucanes de Tijuana is usually the go-to. Aside from that, you’ll find that a lot of his aggressive competing style is represented by upbeat bangers from artists such as Nipsey Hustle, Mac Miller, Daz Dillinger, and Action Bronson.
Get a glimpse into the tunes that carry Rodriguez through his day as he trains, relaxes, and for when it’s time to straight-up party. As well as what’s in his ears just moments before he makes the walk to the Octagon. A sure-fire way, to get your day and your workouts started off right.
