Rock band Mayonnaise and actress Yam Concepcion is treating fans with a cover of a Foo Fighters hit during the pandemic-induced quarantine.

Their collaboration for “Big Me” was uploaded yesterday, May 28, on the official YouTube channel of Mayonnaise, which constantly posts song covers under its “#TBT” series.

“For this episode, ang kasama namin ay ang kaibigan namin na kaka-birthday lang na hindi lang artista kundi isa ring drummer mula sa bandang Ursaminor na si Yam Concepcion,” Mayonnaise said.

(For this episode, we are joined by our friend, who recently celebrated her birthday and is not only an actress but also a drummer for the band Ursaminor, Yam Concepcion.)

Concepcion worked the drum set, while the vocals, guitar and bass parts were performed by Mayonnaise frontman Monty Macalino.

“Naisipan namin na ito ang tugtugin dahil isa sa mga paborito naming banda ang Foo Fighters,” the band said. “Isa pang trivia, ito ang unang kantang tinugtog namin nung 1996 nung tumugtog kami sa Freshmen-Senior [high school] Dance namin.”

(We decided to play this because one of our favorite bands is Foo Fighters. Another trivia, this is the first song we ever played back in 1996 during our Freshmen-Senior High school dance.)

Concepcion has been regularly posting drum covers on social media. Prior to her cover with Mayonnaise, she posted on May 14 a collab of Nirvana’s “Drain You” with famous 10-year-old Japanese drummer Yoyoka Soma.

Concepcion, who just turned 32 last Wednesday, May 27, marked her birthday by launching her official YouTube channel.

Mayonnaise, meanwhile, earlier this month covered Eminem’s “Stan” with Pinoy hip-hop legend Gloc-9 (real name: Aristotle Pollisco) under #TBT.  /ra

Tyron Woodley favoured vs. Gilbert Burns on Saturday UFC odds

Tyron Woodley will be looking to rebound from a loss to Kamaru Usman at UFC 235 that cost him the UFC welterweight title when he returns to action on Saturday to face rising star Gilbert Burns as a -190 betting favourite on the UFC odds at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

Woodley’s unanimous decision loss as a -210 favourite ended his three-year reign as the UFC welterweight champion, but with just one defeat over his past eight fights he remains the top-ranked contender in the UFC welterweight division going into Saturday night’s bout at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas.

The 38-year-old earned his first submission win since 2009 in his victory over Darren Till at UFC 228, but has more commonly earned narrow victories by decision. In addition to a split decision win over Kelvin Gastelum in a catchweight clash at UFC 183, Woodley saw a pair of memorable clashes with Stephen Thompson go to the judges, who declared their UFC 205 tilt a majority draw before handing Woodley a majority decision at UFC 209 as a -115 wager.

Listed as a +155 underdog for Saturday night, Burns currently rides a five-fight win streak including three straight victories since returning to welterweight. The 33-year-old Brazilian ended Demian Maia’s night with a first-round TKO as a -160 wager in his last outing at UFC Fight Night 170, which marked his fastest victory since joining the UFC in 2014.

Overall, Burns is undefeated in 10 professional fights as a welterweight, including a run of six straight first-round finishes to start his pro career, beginning in 2012. However, he needed a unanimous nod from the judges in two of his three recent welterweight contests. And unlike Woodley, Burns has never seen action in championship rounds while racking up an 18-3 record.
