Something similar to the Strikeforce intro would be cool.
That's an awesome intro Phone Post
The UFC doesn't seem to implement those hi speed cameras.

At least not until recently. Phone Post

Chris -  maybe Bellator will pick him up?

 That was funny when someone said it on page 2. :-p

Seriously though, I am glad the stupid gladiator is gone.
That shit music better be gone with him.
The NFL music and robots need to disappear as well.
I agree with the folks above who said they should just use "The Who - Teenage Wasteland" video that they show at live events.

I'd like it if they just use the trailer as the intro.

Well that sucks, that was like the pledge of allegiance for the UFC, once the music starts and you see the gladiator, you get pumped. Mistake in my opinion.

Tweener -
ENZO007 - I agree, it was the song that killed it. The screaming generic death metal music used to fire up the tweens before each event.

Death metal?

Before someone else mistakenly refers to the song by The Who as "teenage wasteland", the song is called "Baba O'Riley". Just FYI.

Underground News - Tonight, UFC President Dana White revealed exclusively  to the Underground that the opening sequence for it's PPV broadcast has been redone and the new introduction will be revealed this Saturday for UFC 143. The event will feature Nick Diaz fighting Carlos Condit for the interim welterweight championship in the  main event.

The opening sequence, which has shown a Roman gladiator preparing for battle has often been critiqued by fans and although the sequence hasn't been used by the UFC on it's FOX and Fuel TV broadcasts, it had been present as most recent as this past UFC 142.

To quote the UFC President directly: "He's been cut."

Baba O'Riley intro to the PPV's would be great.

Now, I'm no copyright lawyer, but correct me if I'm wrong, playing it in the stadiums is considered "fair use" I believe, but wouldn't making it the opening of the official broadcast require the UFC to pay for its use then? The Who gotta get their beak wet in that case, right?

Artists get compensated for public use of their songs (including in arena) by corporations such as ASCAP or BMI.  (ascap doesn't pay out of their pockets, they just make sure artists get paid) Doesn't matter if it's an official opening song or not
