    Just wondering






    You can clearly see that the entraces go to the beat of the music...When El Chapo hits, Conor suddenly appears on the screen.

    When GSP song gets to "If you standin' on the wall, get it up, get it up" it cuts to GSP.


    They seem so orchestrated that Im wondering if the UFC does this on purpose out of there own...or better yet did GSP/Conor ask for the camera to cut to them when that part of the song hit.

    Specifically with the GSP example, I doubt that was accidental...The red light came on and GSP knew he was on.

    Not all fighters get this treatment, most undercard fighters don't but even main eventers don't seem to get this treatment...Is it just reserved for the GSPs/Conors of MMA? Did they ask for it?

    Is there any other examples of excellent cuts like this by the UFC that goes with a song?

    They have a production team whose job it is to make everything look and sound good.

    I think they have a production team on the case.

    In your head, psychologically, most music will go with most stimuli you experience. The tones set the mood, no matter what you may be viewing. See: movies, tv shows etc.

    For example if you had "sandstorm by Darude" playing in your car while watching a guy jog on the sidewalk, it might look quite funny. Replace it with sad, soft, lonely music and even though the visuals remain the same the whole atmosphere of the event may seem different to you.

    o_O ...so for all the other live broadcasts they must just use a single camera angle for the whole show.

    They only make this effort for their stars, if they did it for everyone it wouldn't seem so special.

    Shields, Machida and Couture all got this treatment at 129.

    The best entrances they've ever done were for McGregor and Aldo at 194, both awesome.
