I signed up to this forum just to say NO!
Bruce Buffer is the man!!! No one can hype a crowd like Bruce(well, perhaps Michael). His turns and comments are the greatest. Especially "IT'S TIIIIMMMMMEEEEE!", if I could afford Bruce I'd have him at my wedding.
"That was the greatest thing I've ever seen in my life, Randy".
I have to agree...I think Bruce is perfect for the UFC. Maybe that's just because he's been doing it for so long that I just got used to him.
In my opinion though, a UFC fight just wouldn't be right without having Bruce introduce the fighters.
I mean, there's only one Michael Buffer, but honestly, seeing him or Jimmy Lennon Jr. or Lupe Contreras or Amy Hayes inside the Octagon would just be odd. It wouldn't even look right. I just don't think there "style" of announcing fits with the UFC. Likewise, I don't think Bruce's style of announcing would fit at a boxing match.
