Yet Another Crushing Blow For The Last Living Limp Bizkit Fans: No UFC 100 Concert

Fred Durst
(The man who helped set off a jerk-off facial hair revolution.)

Those of you who planned a trip to Las Vegas for UFC 100 solely to hear Limp Bizkit play that one song that sounds like all their other songs are in for some disappointment.  The concert is officially off, reportedly because the UFC and Interscope Records couldn’t come to terms on DVD rights or the UFC’s choice of venue.  And since we all know that it’s either the UFC’s way or no way, Limp Bizkit will not be entertaining UFC fans in Vegas on July 10.  They may, however, schedule their own show somewhere else in Vegas on the same night, but will Brock Lesnar get to rock out to it with his shirt off?  Seems sadly unlikely.

In a statement released by the band we get a glimpse of what it’s like when non-fighters have to deal with the UFC’s inflexibility:

Limp Bizkit did NOT, in any way, cancel the UFC 100 concert in Las Vegas. Truth is UFC and Interscope Records could not come to an agreement on certain DVD rights.  With all respect to Mandalay Bay, the UFC were also unhappy with Limp Bizkit decision of wanting to switch the performance from the Beach at Mandalay Bay with its inappropriate layout for a heavy rock concert with Limp Bizkit, basically a stage in front of a pool, to a more standard concert venue also located at the Mandalay Bay, which was the House Of Blues. The UFC expressed they wanted a ‘party vibe’ for this event and would not settle for any venue besides the Beach for this and other reasons.

So with Limp Bizkit out, what will the UFC do to entertain all those fans who haven’t listened to new music since 2001?  Think it’s too late to try and book O-Town?

If I were Dana I would've signed Disturbed... and then drank a litre of cola.... at Shenanigans!
NECROPHYTE- June 30, 2009 at 9:30 am
Just as long as they don't have some fag ass rapper performing, it's kool w/me.
Canadian Chronic- June 30, 2009 at 9:24 am
Having RATM play would be awesome, but, then they would be the biggest sell out band in history, so I dont see that happening.

Someone mentioned Clutch playing there, that would be fuckin incredible! Almost make me wanna but a ticket and fly to Vegas

Hey! 1999 called they want there (c)rap rock back!

I did it all for the nookie WHAT! so you can take that cookie! - wtf! What does that even mean!!!!!! i called Limp Bizkit to play my little brothers 13th B-day and Fred was like 100 bucks and 4 red hats. i told him no red hats and you got a deal. he agreed.

I have to say, it would be pretty fucking badass to see De La Rocha rip his shirt off and see 'fuck UFC' written on his chest in blood. However, if Dana does pull it off, I have almost no respect left for RATM as a band.

The fact that Limp dicksuck is NOT going to play just made UFC 100 that much better and watchable.
I guess since the king of pop is dead, maybe they should try prince?
fuck...anything beats those limp dicks.
This just shows that Dana White is a better business man than I thought he found a way to get out of that shit.

And meth addled dirt heads across the Midwest are bummed.
Dagnut- June 29, 2009 at 1:40 pm
So they are trying to make a respectable sport and build a business Cocky?
So that's how you get the sporting world to take you seriously..you book an out of date rock band? what's a rock band doing there anyway?
Clyde- June 29, 2009 at 1:33 pm
Rage against the machine is a good call. I'd suggest M.O.P as well as you can't beat it for psyching yourself up for a fight. Although I suspect pistol whipping to the back of the head and stomps on a downed opponent's head will not go down too well with the refs. Bitch ass mothafuckas...

I used to like Limp Bizkit. Ahh... to be young and stupid again.

Limp Biscuits are horrid..

I for one was pretty disappointed to hear that they were even still alive.. much less playing at UFC 100..

I am glad they are not.. once again-- they suck in every way shape and form.

Horrid stuff..

Get a real band...

Clutch would be a better fit...

Krazy Kracker- June 29, 2009 at 1:09 pm
Dana: "Fuck! Now I'll have to sign Creed or some other fuckin "hard rock" band all the fuckin youngsters listen to nowadays, what with their fuckin backwards jeans, pop-rocks, Pepsi Crystal and slap bracelets! Note to self: Buy Saved By The Bell seasons, that show fuckin rocked!"
Than- June 29, 2009 at 1:03 pm
This can only be a good thing.
Kim Couture is a cunt- June 29, 2009 at 12:50 pm
somewhere is skateboard land Chad Muska kills himself because Fred is wearing his shirt.
BuckWild- June 29, 2009 at 12:28 pm
Oh and he can do the Kobe rap but change it to .. Tell me how my pee pee taste... ha ha .. I kill me!!! Im on a roll !
BuckWild- June 29, 2009 at 12:27 pm
We all know Shaq is a BIG mma fan (get it.. BIG) . Lets get him back with Fu-Schnickens and throw a party on par with the limp!!!
Titos Head- June 29, 2009 at 12:18 pm
what about slipknot or some crazy metal band? MMA mosh pit style
karate is back- June 29, 2009 at 12:14 pm
Aww too bad and wasn't Dana all stoked that the Bizkit was going to perform!? I can see why when they have such lyrical genius as "give me something to break, i want your fucking face."
Deadpanda- June 29, 2009 at 12:01 pm
I think Dana should flip this 180 degrees & book Ben Folds.
whatever.- June 29, 2009 at 11:56 am
Mandy Moore would do it for free.
Shatski- June 29, 2009 at 10:54 am
True, Mr. Mac! haha. I like the idea of Rage at the event more than Limp Bizkit. But also, I like the idea of Bread there more than them, too. That's going way back, man. It's crazy that they couldn't find someone with more current relevance unless they are looking for that comeback performance for someone. Or even a band that was big when the UFC first started. Those are the only two reasons I can think of for Dana to want Fred Durst and company. Might as well get the band that got LB into the spotlight, then. Korn, who I don't care for either, really. A lot of that "radio metal" sucked.
Mr. Mac- June 29, 2009 at 10:38 am
So i guess "its my way or the high way" is a term both fred and dana are familiar with.
ace328- June 29, 2009 at 10:35 am
They should've booked the Offspring in the first place
Jeffro- June 29, 2009 at 10:33 am
RATM is a good idea. Deftones is a good one too. I would pick Pennywise. They fucking rock, and enjoy smaller venues.
C-Bus Allstar- June 29, 2009 at 10:24 am
Deathb4tapout had a piece of rumor that abso-fucking-lutely sparked my interest. Can anyone else here imagine Rage Against the Machine rocking the FUCK out of the Mandalay for UFC 100? I fucking can. DO IT DANA. GET RATM, but if you can't get Zach DeLaRocha, don't bother.
