Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Videos: Silva vs. Sonnen Fan-Made Promo, The Buffer Lunge

(Props: nicktheface via Fightlinker)

Will Chael Sonnen‘s over-the-top trash-talk infuriate Anderson Silva into engaging with him? Will Sonnen make good on his promise to come straight at the Spider and force him to fight? Would Dana White really cut his middleweight champion after a win? Has Sonnen signed his own death warrant, or bought a ticket to a 25-minute dance contest? All these questions will be answered on August 7th, when Silva and Sonnen meet at UFC 117 in Oakland, California. Speaking of #117, the event will reportedly host the welterweight rematch between Thiago Alves and Jon Fitch, which was originally scheduled for UFC 115 in June, but has been pushed back to give Alves more time to recover from brain surgery.

After the jump: A behind-the-scenes video of Bruce Buffer at UFC 102, which reveals Buffer’s warm-up technique and a dramatic fighter-introduction maneuver we’ll call the "Buffer Lunge"

(Props: BlueNose1690i. The lunge goes down at the 1:56 mark.)

fuckin hilarious! You can't watch that and NOT be a fan of BB.

"A guy like that wouldn't last ten seconds in my neighborhood.."

Laugh my fucking ass off, almost shot snot out of my nose. Your neighborhood? West Linn, OR is the land of side-ways base ball hats and pink shirts- and most of those have popped collars with spray-tan stains on them. Bunch of spoiled rich fags. And if you decided that you're claiming Woodburn, instead, that's not exactly South Central, either.

I doubt it will happen, but I wouldn't mind seeing Dana cut Anderson. It might be kinda fun to watch Silva fight circus clowns/freak shows in Japan for a while.

Pretty cool that they posted my video , Thanks guys.

Before entering the ring, buffer acts like my dad when he tried to be cool at one of our parties.

Anything with AC/DC as backing track is a win for me, and the Buffster's attention to detail and going the extra mile for the fans is why UFC is the #1 MMA organisation on the planet

WAR Buffster

Buffer...Really? He's an announcer for christ sake. Just announce the fight already and forget the antics. Wonder why he's not shown during the broadcast doing this crap?...Because he looks like complete idiot! His voice/introductions have never been as good as his brothers "Let's get ready to rumble" he had to find his own gimmick, which borders on the ridiculous.

PS: Oh yeah...Please let Sonnen pound Silva to sleep, and then pound him again for sleeping!

Sonnen has no shot against Silva. Period. His game is one-dimensional and hopefully Silva will respect him enough as an oppenent to kick his ass rather than toy with him for 5 rounds to piss off Dana White. Either way it's gonna be a W for Silva

The Buff's a one of a kind guy. I think he's amazing, he's living the dream, hope he rides it for all it's worth.

Buffer would be perfect if he enunciated some of the fighters names better. The man gets outright silly sometimes.

The video reminds how badass some of ac/dc's shit was.

And I didn't even watch the other video.

Travis gave up mount like he was fightin his little brother against Anderson. If you allow a heel to reach your shoulder while holding mount, your being pretty cocky.

And he submited to strikes, not the triangle. Not like he was going anywhere though. But he did practically dive into it. Just sayin, watch it again.

Buffer- "Yeah, the first and second fights were a breeze. All names were of Latin and European descent and your standard nicknames, pitbull, hammer, the molestor, what have you, it just flowed pretty naturally. But the third fight. Oh the third fight, it featured Russions. It took everything I had. My loins were nice and warm so I knew it was time to get paid and and let all pronuncial errors be overshadowed by the moneymaker. You know what I'm talkin about... boom. You holdin?"

disclaimer: Bruce Buffer never maid these statments. But I wouldnt be surprized

Chael Sonnen is going to get stomped on by a black man from the slums of Brazil. His Republican image is going to take a more severe beating than he is.
shottaz83- April 30, 2010 at 3:37 pm
does chael not realize anderson has a black belt in bjj and submitted travis lutter and dan henderson both world class wrestlers
canadian mma fan- April 30, 2010 at 3:35 pm
Still think the Vitor Belfort vs Silva fight would be much better.

Buffer makes you suffer

dude.. every time buffer starts going crazy i get chills.. hes the fukin MAN
shartacus- April 30, 2010 at 2:50 pm
Bruce Buffer is the shit. The only way his intro's could be any more awesome is if he tooted a fat gagger directly off of Dana's head and then pimp slapped the shit out of Chandela directly before going into his spiel. The man is a god imo.
Kimbos Bread- April 30, 2010 at 2:49 pm

He wasn`t the first troll to find his way over to CP.

He sure as hell won`t be the last.
Kicktothegroin- April 30, 2010 at 2:43 pm
Great, UFC 115 just got worse. I hope those scalper pricks who bought up all the tickets in a half hour get stuck with the bill to this embarassingly weak event.

Also, I miss that thisredengine Douchebag already... Anyone with me?
Kimbos Bread- April 30, 2010 at 2:37 pm

Tisk tisk... Buffer said he might opt for the switch of the feet and twist at the waist to eliminate the chance of having the mic cord wrap around his legs, tripping him. Originally, he said he loved his fans so much that he was determined to work out a workable method for the 360 and practice it for until he executed the Buffer 360 at UFC 100. He went through with it, but the UFC didn`t broadcast it.


You see, it`s easy to bash the guy with cheap shots. But for those of us who think a bit deeper, we cherish that extra effort put in by a guy who has a relatively small role, it makes all the difference.

Good video, makes me actually look forward to a fight that I would otherwise have little interest in. Way too early prediction:

Sonnen rushes in, eats a knee, Silva via pulls guard, transitions to triangle choke, Sonnen loses via loss of consciousness @ 1:45 of round 1.
VisitingDeadAncestors- April 30, 2010 at 2:32 pm
Sonnen better watch for those "baits".

He says he'll come after Silva, but there's a high probability he'll be

reminded why he jumped MMA into politics.

i love sonnen, i hate silvas antics of late. that being said, sonnen will be a mess after this fight... anderson literally is a jedi... hes too calm, too composed, too quick, too accurate, too strong, too scary....... he IS (for better or worse [lets face it, of late its worse]) the greatest fighter of our time. everything that is said about him is true, the good and bad. he is a cocky little prick... but he has also made some of the toughest and most honorable warriors in the UFC look like house cats trying to take on a lion. and hes done this too fighters from multiple weight classes. he is a striking legend... and i just dont see that being taken from him anytime soon. mediumrare is right, what he needs to pull him down to what i like to call earth is haymaker to the chin that lands.... he needs to wake up on the floor to smelly salts and maybe then he'll understand that hes a superior fighter, but no better a human being than the next.... a logical guy...and i dont see this happening.

root for the underdog
bet on the sure thing

It's going to hurt me so much to watch Sonnen get wrecked. So much entertainment value out the window.
