Along with these songs will be a few of Mikey’s original tracks including one inspired by UFC President Dana White as well as an exclusive track that will only be available on the album.
“This was something that totally came out of left field, wasn’t expecting anything like this. But it’s nice to come across a company that understands what it is I’m trying to do and have the same ideas that I have in terms of extending my brand within the mixed martial arts market. The timing was right, and they are 100% on board with supporting my journey and I am grateful for that.” Rukus says.
