Then you get UFC announcer Bruce Buffer


Below Buffer speaks to MMA Nation's Matthew Roth before UFC 136 about how he does what he does.

"(The new expanded UFC schedule from the UFC on FOX deal) is the culmination of everyone's efforts. This is what you call a very grand moment."

"It doesn't wear on me because this is what I signed up to do. So when I hear there's going to be potentially 35 shows next year versus 27 this year? That's what I signed up to do. And the exhaustion is just part of the deal if it happens.

"when I step in the Octagon, there is no exhaustion ... my passion takes over. You can't announce the way I announce if you're not into it. If I'm ever not into it, then I'll consider retiring."

"Bring it on, make it 40, I'm here."

Maybe both? I do like that he's been enthusiastic about MMA since the mainstream was still calling it human cockfighting.

<blockquote>Garv -  Bruce is already very wealthy and doesn't need to do the ring announcing.  Which proves that he's in it for the fun it brings him.  That's a lot of travel, and plane hopping is no fun, so he's clearly passionate about the sport and loves what he does. More power to him. <br /></blockquote><br /><br />Or it could be he likes the perks of fame that being on tv brings him. He seems more passionate about poker than mma

I personally can't stand his announcing. It probably has something do to with all the yelling and jumping around in the cage.
