Rest Assured, Bruce Buffer Is Dropping That “It’s Fight Time” Nonsense


(Perhaps the greatest “It’s time!” in UFC history. Thank you, Brazil.) 

I know it’s a pretty obvious fact to state, but I would be remiss if I did not tell you that Bruce Buffer is the greatest ring announcer to ever walk the face of this or any other planet, bar none. The man’s passion for his job is unmatched by his counterparts (sorry, Jimmy Lennon Jr., but you gotta step your shit up!), and his in-ring enthusiasm harnesses enough power and masculinity to immaculately conceive with over 90 percent of his audience, male or female, on any given night. Seriously, Buffer has the Howard Sternian ability to bring a woman to full climax using only the sound of his voice and a speaker with the bass cranked up, except when he does it, the woman throws herself into a volcano afterward. And as far as Buffer’s ocular presence goes; have you even seen the Buffer two-step? How about the Buffer 360? The man simply dominates in every medium he is presented with.

However, in the past couple UFC events, the Buffernation has noticed a infinitesimal, yet present crack in Bruce’s armor. Mainly, his decision to start saying “It’s fight time!” rather than his traditional “It’s time!” when introducing the main event. The audiences in attendance simply could not wrap their minds around this concept, and their reactions varied from this to this. Riots almost immediately broke out in downtown L.A after the world was greeted by this abomination at UFC on FOX 4, and many of us went as far as to claim that it was the exact moment the UFC reached its tipping point.

Thankfully, Lord Bruce has realized his mistake, which he attributed to “going through some marketing aspects” in a recent interview, and claims that we can all expect the classic “It’s time!” at the next UFC event. So rest assured, Potatoites, all is once again Yub Nub in the land of mixed martial arts.

After the jump: A behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Buffer 360, for nostalgia’s sake, and a tribute to the man behind it all.

Happy Freaking Birthday, Bruce Buffer


(I dare you to watch this entire video and remain unpumped.  No, check that. I double-dare you.)

Here at Cage Potato we value all of our loyal readers, but we value the ones who are at least semi-famous just a little bit more.  One such reader, as you probably know, is Bruce Buffer.  Today The Buff turns fifty and we would like to congratulate him on not only living this long, which neither one of us really expects to do, but also holding down a pretty sweet job all this time without getting fired for drinking too much or stealing microphones, which both of us would have done by now. 

Happy birthday, Bruce.  The Buffer Turn has done more to change the nature of ring announcing than any other single innovation, with the possible exceptions of electricity and language itself.  And if you don’t believe that The Buff is one of the sport’s most enthusiastic and passionate fans, well, you should really see what’s after the jump.
