    That intro was orgasmic.

    We need a right balance between the past of the ufc and his future (reebook for example) imo.
    Or im being too conservative? Utopian?

    Mir's trash talk game was nasty back in the day. No mercy

    I thought the gladiator and bring the pain were starting to get really old.

    If you miss old advertisements just start clicking on every internet banner you see and wallow in your nostalgia.

    Imo pride had the coolest intros, if only for the wtf aspect. They did a much better job than UFC to make it feel like a show, they took the good aspects of pro wrestling.





    Love how awkward the fighters feel when the dude wearing the diaper announce each. <18>

    I liked the big WWE style entrances. Tito had a really cool one once

    I hope face the pain never leaves. I certainly didn't mind the gladiator but I'm not mad that random guy is gone.

    What really piss me off though....was that new remix version of face the pain without the vocals.

    I also don't like the way basically Goldberg and Rogan are the only ones that ever speak on camera.

    Throw in some interviews with celebrities, fans, other fighters.

    Show some backstage stuff other than a guy lamely hitting the mitts on cue

    Put a little more production into the show

    best part of that was Dana giving Ebersole an "of the night" bonus for getting Hallman out of there, and then immediately banning speedos. haha

    At some point a few years ago, maybe the fox deal, they started showing the one with classic fight moments blurrying from one to another. Maybe they still use gladiator for some events though, i don't watch em all anymore.
