Bruce Buffer added to EA UFC 3. Kick ass and say names.

bruce-buffer-added-kick-names

Bruce Buffer is in the EA UFC 3 game doing his announcer duties. He says the names of the fighters as well as give results. We already know that. However, Bruce is now in the game as a playable character. That’s right, you can fight as the Buff because he is the stuff!

The EA developers were really generous to the Buff bod, too. While Bruce usually sports a 4.5-pack in real life, in the game, he’s shredded with an 8-pack. As for his skills, Bruce looks to be a bruiser with heavy hands as well.

If you can’t get enough Bruce Buffer, after he wins a fight, Bruce Buffer announces him as the winner.

You know what the ancient Chinese proverbs say, “Playing with Bruce Buffer is better than playing with yourself”.

Steve Aoki and Laidback Luke music video. “It’s Time” w/ Bruce Buffer

aoki-laidback-music-time-bruce-buffer

Bruce Buffer continues on as the most diverse man in mixed martial arts. Aside from all of his other ventures, we can possibly add ‘musician’. Buffer doesn’t sing or dance, rather, he just roars his famous phrase, “It’s time!”. From there, super DJ’s, Steve Aoki and Laidback Luke, mix and cut it up into a song. The result is a YouTube video with over 1,000,000 views in a week.

Both Steve Aoki and Laidback Luke are martial arts fans and the video reflects that. The video is just a big training montage and even UFC Hall of Famer, Ken Shamrock, makes an appearance as Aoki’s trainer.

Bruce Buffer may be the biggest crossover star that MMA has and he’s been quietly doing it for over twenty years. He is the Buff and he is the stuff!

Class personified. Bruce Buffer talks McGregor incident.

class-personified-buffer-mcgregor

Bruce Buffer is class personified. He always has been. He also loves his job with the UFC and has never been shy about saying how good the company has been to him. So, when Conor McGregor selfishly goes wild and destroys property and injures fighters, Buffer has a message for the fans.

“Don’t look at the UFC or any of the great fighters of mixed martial arts. This was something that occurred from one individual. It’s separate from who we are.”

Being that Bruce is a class guy, he had some choice words that he wanted to express about McGregor and those who supported his actions, but stayed tight-lipped instead.

As always, Buffer is a fantastic representative of MMA and the UFC.

Bruce Buffer turned down working an event for OJ Simpson

buffer-reveals-work-event-oj-simpson

Remember that musical, “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown”? Yeah, I don’t either. However, Bruce Buffer embodies the message, when it comes to OJ Simpson. TMZ caught up with the UFC announcer and asked him his thoughts on OJ’s latest outburst in a Las Vegas casino.

The Buff has no love for OJ and revealed that he denied working an announcing gig for Simpson in the past.

“I was asked to announce OJ in Florida at an event, some ten of more years ago and I said I refuse. They asked me again and I said to get another announcer. I don’t care how many touchdowns he’s scored. Sorry.”

Bruce Buffer can relate to the Oscars Best Picture mix-up as he recalls some of his own

If there’s one thing fight fans love to watch, it’s non-fighters in tuxedos and ball gowns celebrating one another. So by now, you’ve probably heard all about the mix up last night at the 89th Academy Awards when “La La Land” was mistakenly announced as the winner for Best Picture over the actual winner, “Moonlight”.

Presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway went full Steve Harvey when they read the wrong title. Interestingly enough, accidents like this are not limited to the entertainment world.

The veteran voice of the octagon himself, Bruce Buffer, can relate to moments like these.

At UFC 205 when Tryon Woodley and Stephen Thompson battled to a 5-round majority draw, Buffer initially announced it as a split decision win for Tyron Woodley. As Joe Rogan was beginning to interview Woodley, they were called back to the center of the octagon so that Buffer could correct the mistake.

Buffer often talks about another one of his announcing snafus from UFC 48 when Frank Mir and Tm Sylvia were fighting for the vacant UFC heavyweight title. When Mir won, Buffer failed to announce him as the new champion, something he admittedly felt bad about for the better part of a decade.

So if anyone can offer some advice to Beatty and Dunaway, it’s Buffer. TMZ caught up with Bruce to get his take on how the two legendary actors should handle it.

“All I can say is keep your cool. Don’t go ‘Help, Mr. Wizard, get me out of here.’ This isn’t a ‘wanna get away’ moment. It wasn’t their fault.”

Buffer also opens up more about his UFC 205 slip up and if he’s feeling the pressure going into that bout at this coming Saturday’s UFC 209.
