    Otherwise he is going to have to announce Rory "The Red King" Macdonald vs Hector "Showeather" Lombard.

    Didn't he announce Lombard as Lightning in the last fight?

    I remember he announced a fighter using an old nickname, not sure if it was Hector.

    Yep, he shouted 'Lightning' on recent even, lol.

    I guess that while Buffer usually tries hard to announce fighters just as they want, it was too much. :icon_twis

    It's more than one man can take. These nicknames are going to push him into retirement.

    Buffer has done a great job, but could use a change anyways. Loved the WEC announcer.

    Wait... so he just created his own portmanteau and has "rebranded" himself under obvious advisory of his new clothing venture marketing team? He changed his name to advertise for his clothing line? Really?

    I don't blame Buffer one bit...

    This was new news to me!!

    Lightening was a better nicname, and 'Red King' is just as shit as 'Ares'.

    What is it with Rory Mac and crap nicnames?

    Dude the Waterboy was a great nickname. I remember I was at a UFC event at BWW and the waterboy was beating the crap out of che mills. I yelled out Mills must have spit in the cooler and the whole bar started laughing!

    Shouldn't be allowed giving yourself a nickname. "Showeather" is friggin' ridiculous.
