Listen to the mixes that keep Chris “The Action Man” Curtis in shape

Chris Curtis’s ability to win a fight with one strike is something to behold. The southpaw has no qualms about absorbing damage to land the perfect shot. While there is a lot of upbeat music on his playlists to get his mind right in training and day-to-day life, when he is backstage preparing to make the walk to the Octagon, it’s fighting anime music that gets him ready to perform. 

You’ll find that Curtis’s mixes span a lot of different genres, from rap/hip-hop artists like Tupac, Notorious B.IG, and the Game to Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift.

«My walkout music changes every time I compete. The song selection all comes down to what connects with me during camp. Lately, it’s Neffex’s “Graveyard” that’s making me feel like an absolute monster. Every camp feels different and usually I’ll look to find a song that matches my feelings at the time»

When it comes time to celebrate the big victories, it’s Maino’s “Million Bucks” that has become his anthem. During the awkward coming of age years dealing with teenage angst, It was Incubus’s “I miss you” and pretty much every Linkin Park song that helped him cope. 

When on the road and traveling, Curtis reverts to his favorite genre of music, Alternative/Emo Rock to bring him to a peaceful place while making the commute. 

Whatever mood you’re trying to set, you can now introduce the playlists that have elevated one of the most game middleweights on the roster, enabling you to bring your own game to the next level.
