It's Time!: My 360-Degree View of the UFC

Bruce Buffer


If you’re examining those phrases, likelihood is that you just, like me, are keen on the good recreation we name MMA.

And if you’re a fan, then you definitely most likely realize my face.

Yeah, that’s right—I’m that man you notice at each UFC fit, spinning round and roaring into the microphone and getting up in combatants’ grills.

Okay, so i'd no longer be the main subtle or refined announcer within the company. yet i am hoping I speak my ardour for the game in a manner no different announcer does.   

I’ll say it back: Passion. Because that’s what this publication is set.

In those pages, i would like to inform you concerning the ardour that first led me to guess every thing in this activity of ours, long ago whilst MMA used to be outlawed in part the rustic and there wasn’t a dime to be made on it. i need to inform you the way that zeal started, with my larger-than-life father, a former Marine Drill Sergeant who, by the point i used to be ten, had taught me to play poker and blackjack, field-strip a Luger pistol blindfolded, and recite poetry. He was once a guy who notion not anything of confronting a bunch of thugs armed with not anything yet his fists—and who anticipated an identical power and honor from his sons. 

I are looking to take you contained in the great brotherhood that makes up the UFC as not anyone ever has ahead of, to inform you concerning the bond all of us percentage and the loopy occasions I’ve had through the years with men like Randy Couture, Tito Ortiz, Chuck Liddell, BJ Penn, and Jon “Bones” Jones. i need to offer you my Octagon-side insights on a few of the colossal fights you have in mind, and simply probably, to inform you a few few memorable fights that happened outside of the octagon, too—from my very own sparring fit with an adolescent named Royce Gracie again ahead of the word “Mixed Martial Arts” even existed, to a few different brawls you might’ve heard about. 

And i would like to inform you in regards to the notable, late-life assembly with the fame brother I by no means knew I had—a brother whose life my mom and dad had by no means as soon as breathed a be aware about!—that helped encourage me to chase my very own desires of status up within the Octagon.

Surprising stuff from the fellow within the fancy tux, correct? And that’s only the start. There’s much you don’t learn about me but.

And now… IT’S TIME! I instructed you.
