[VIDEO] Just TRY and Watch This UFC 151 Promo Without Blowing a Gasket

Not to come off sounding like a bunch of know-it-alls, but we’re pretty sure we’ve figured out the formula to make the perfect trailer for any upcoming UFC event. It’s simple really:

1. Pick out the best highlights of the champion destroying his former opponents, preferably in slow-mo

2. Insert Joe Rogan quote, something about said champ being “untouchable” or “the greatest”

3. Fade in “Lux Aeterna” by Clint Mansell, usually the orchestral Lord of the Rings version


5. As the song enters its second half, cut to several clips of the challenger destroying his former opponents, now in real or even sped up time.

6. Mike Goldberg yelling “Oh my” or “It is all over!”

7. Close on a dramatic, sudden cut to the event text/details.

The marketing department behind the UFC 151 promo clearly adhered to this formula, resulting in a trailer that will undoubtedly get your panties, your wife’s panties, and your slutty mistresses crotchless panties all bunched up in anticipation for the blood-soaked throwdown that will be Jones vs. Henderson on September 1st.

Check it out below.

Seemingly not content with the plethora of awesome knockouts and background music that makes you want to grab your ten closest friends and go drive-by hardcore dancing, the editor of the trailer opted to dub over a Hendo scream at the 52 second mark (which was likely inaudible when he originally did it) with the roar of the shark in Jaws 4. Although the sound was completely off-putting in both instances, it was easily more successful here.

But the question still remains: Will Hendo be able to land one of his patented H-bombs, or will Bones’ dominance continue?

We’re just a couple weeks away from finding out.

-J. Jones

@D Piddy: "If Jones doesn't lay and pray and go for a submission"

Well, technically it isn't "lay and pray" if he's also going for a submission. Praying is what you have to do if you aren't going to go for a sub... and if you are going for a sub, there's a better chance of an interesting grappling match, even if the subs aren't successful.

The last time Jones circled left he hit a telephone pole so surely he's learned his lesson.

Dammit, I wanted to take a week off of "Comment of the Week" and then you go and do that.

If Hendo lands an H-Bomb, I'll pork Cyborg.
You know what, fuck it! If Hendo lands an H-Bomb, I'll let Cyborg pork me(shudder).

Bones' trainer, I mean. No way in hell they aren't doing anything and everything to prepare for/negate the H-Bizzle. It's not exactly top secret, nawmsayin.

If Hendo lands an H-Bomb, his trainer needs to be shot.
D Piddy- August 14, 2012 at 11:49 am
If Jones doesn't lay and pray and go for a submission, Hendo will land the H-Bomb for the win.

Bring on that boring, 5 round decision!

Perfect senario. Dan Henderson starches Jon Jones, wins knockout of the night bonus, then donates it to unicef.

@hjdevnull - Originally, yes, but it was performed by just the Kronos Quartet. The Lord of the Rings version, however, is used in the above promo and in movie trailers more often because of the orchestral score. I know, I am a nerd.
hjdevnull- August 14, 2012 at 12:41 pm
Actually, that's kind of awesome you know that. Nothing quite like a little nerd cred.

All this hype and production for a split decision that Fight metric will say that Henderson clearly won...
Goog- August 14, 2012 at 10:09 am
Much as I'd like to see Henderson take his head off, I'd still prefer Jones just veer off the road in to a tar pit this afternoon.
KeithHackneyWindmillPalmStrike- August 14, 2012 at 9:43 am
I am not ashamed or at all off put by the fact that Dan Henderson gets me hard as a rock
Grimmy- August 14, 2012 at 10:36 am

You are so horny the crack of DAWN isnt safe...
hjdevnull- August 14, 2012 at 9:42 am
Wasn't that song from Requiem for a Dream?
Grimmy- August 14, 2012 at 9:05 am
im actually looking forward to the pre-fight press conference just to hear the reporters have to say after every question to either guy

wonders if the fans will start a WWE/Stone Cold Steve Austin "WHAT???" chant after every comment.
