A sthe first ever UFC Fan Expo on July 10-11 hits Las Vegas before UFC 100, fans are going to be in for a special treat with todays announcement that a slew of exhibition matches featuring some of the Octagons best, past and present, will take place for viewing by all attending the event.
Particularly interesting will be a special match pitting the Voice of the Octagon, Bruce Buffer, against UFC color commentator Joe Rogan in a best two out of three matchup.
Really, I dont think Bruce has any business being in the Octagon with me or anyone else unless he has a mic in his hand, said Rogan. Im younger, faster, stronger, and trust me, after the first match, he wont want anymore.
Its timeto beginthe beatdown, said Buffer, a former kickboxer who promises fireworks once he gets his hands (and feet) on Rogan.
Look, continued Buffer. Im sure Joes jiu-jitsu is top notch, and admittedly, thats my weak point. But when I pull the Buffer 180 on him and crack him on the chin, hell be the only one on the mat.
For this special best of three matchup, the first bout will be a grappling match, the second will be strictly standup, and the third if necessary will take place under full mixed martial arts rules.
Of course, neither fighter believes that the series will make it to a third and deciding match.
Oh hell no, said Rogan. Im gonna put Bruce to sleep in the first one and theyll have to wake him up for UFC 100 on Saturday night. Hopefully hell be well enough to speak in complete sentences by then.
Like Joe said, its not going past the first one, but the thing is, I will be the one with my hand raised, said Buffer. But hey, no hard feelings Joe. Were all sportsmen here, and we can raise a glass together after UFC 100.
Seats are still available for what may end up being the fight of the year
