Catch the ‘Fight Night 37: Gustafsson vs. Manuwa’ Weigh-Ins LIVE Right Here Starting at 11 a.m. EST [UPDATED w/RESULTS]


(And to think, it costs exactly as much to step into their world as it did to make this poster!)

In a few short minutes, the official weigh-ins for Fight Night 37: Gustafsson vs. Manuwa will transpire from the O2 Arena in London, England. Being that most of us are still resisting the non-urge to purchase UFC Fight Pass, today’s weigh-ins will likely be the closest we come to seeing any of tomorrow afternoon’s fights (legally, at least). So join us after the jump for the quickest weigh-in results on the web, then gather your pitchforks and torches and meet us at the town square to protest the fact that Ilir Latifi still doesn’t have a Wikipedia page. THE YEAR OF LATIFI IS UPON US!!

It’s Official, the UFC’s Marketing Department Isn’t Even Trying Anymore

Contrary to popular opinion, the above poster was not created by a drunk eight year old with cataracts learning to use photoshop for the first time. No, this poster for Fight Night 37: Gustafsson vs. Manuwa was actually created, approved, and released by the UFC yesterday, signifying a new benchmark of laziness for a marketing department that has long since given up.

I mean…just look at that thing. Why is Manuwa crystal clear, yet the only thing on Gustafsson that isn’t blurry is his dog tattoo? Was the person in charge of compiling this monstrosity asked to use the most neutral, non-eye grabbing font available? And why does the background look like it was lifted directly from my 4th grade yearbook photo? Is the “world” we’re supposed to be “stepping into” a undefinable, blue-hued purgatory? So many questions.

If this doesn’t sum up the Fight Pass experience in an image, I don’t know what does. The world needs you now more than ever, DREAM and PRIDE poster artists.

Fight-booking articles are a dime a dozen. Throw a couple statistics here, a fighter breakdown there, and top it all off with some information about the event and you’ve got yourself a perfectly normal, haiku-length article that you could almost pass off as journalism. And then its back to huffing duster in your grandmother’s basement, desperately and fruitlessly attempting to blind yourself from the hellscape that has become your reality. But at least you don’t have to wear a tie to work! (*laughs, cries into whiskey*)

The point is, there are some matchups you can’t help but elaborate on as a fan of the sport – Woodley vs. Condit, for instance. But there are only so many ways to inform you readers that several lower-level fights have recently been booked on (under)cards you probably won’t even watch, so when all else fails, we resort to the GIF. Let’s get to the fight bookings!
