    What is the official name of the instrument used to warn the last 10 seconds of a round? Or is it just 2 pieces of wood or something?

    Also when did the UFC start using it? (my memory gets tripped up on how slowly and how oddly they put in time limits)

    That's Dana White shooting a gun into the crowd.

    Remember when Dana showed his guns on camera and said he might go postal?

    Has anyone from the crowd ever brought one in with them to a fight and used it to mess with the fighters/ref? Kinda like how some people will bring in whistles to other sporting events.

    I hear that noise during the fights, but I don't even know what it looks like. I assume you could purchase one on Amazon or Ebay.

    Awaiting for someone to hear the clacker sound, go like gangbusters to steal a round, repeat for three rounds, then be told they have a high level fight IQ
