Step aside, Steven Seagal. “The Excellence of Execution” is coming through. Sensei Seagal had his shine in the UFC’s last pay-per-view broadcast, so it’s only fitting Bret Hart gets the spotlight when the Octagon invades “The Hitman’s” homeland of Calgary, Alberta, Canada on Saturday.
Late Friday night, it was announced the professional wrestling icon will escort Nick Ring down the aisle when he meets Court McGee at UFC 149.
“Not to be missed moment of #UFC149 prelims on will be @BretHart walking out @Promise_RiiNG,” UFC Canada tweeted accompanied with the pic above.
No word if “The Hitman” is giving Ring some last-minute pointers on how to excellently execute the Sharpshooter.
Ring is currently a slight -120 odds-on favorite to leave Scotiabank Saddledome victorious. However, his line is sure to skyrocket now that he’ll have a secret weapon by his side.
The middleweights battle in the final preliminary bout of the evening, which airs live on FX at 8PM ET/5PM PT. The PPV begins immediately after the 185-pound affair.
