Those are gonna be some great commercials! Only question of course is how long until we see Liddell's parties on them.

Maybe they should look into increasing the fighters' purse so they can survive between the 6 month intervals of $5000 fights.

Harley Davidson and now Bud Light, the UFC is not going to be beat by any others organization soon !!

Next step should be a Fox deal and bang !!

Yup, it's pretty big too IMO. It might sound stupid, but think of how much the UFC is making from this sponsorship.

It is a big announcement, but not what most people expected. It is more of a celebration for the UFC business wise rather than the fans. Indirectly it is exciting.

This is actually huge. Budweiser is a world wide distributer of beer and is a multi million dollar company. Bud is probably the most recognized beer in the world.

I predict a Bud Light victory via Rear Naked Choke late in the 2nd round.

I was also hoping for the fox deal. I wake up this morning and read that EliteXC is now on tv. I expected a big response from the UFC. Basically they said "Well weve got Bud Light"

And yes i realize its a big step forward for the UFC to be getting a huge sponsor like that (instead of Mickey's) but i expected them to fire back with a little something more.

Oh and Bud light sucks. They should get some Keystone.

Its a bigger deal in terms of PR, not money. The one thing the UFC has not done is land major National and International sponsers. The big one they had was Xyience and now they are out. Budwieser is the largest beer distributer in the world and is associated with all the largest sporting events. Now they are with the UFC. As has been pointed out in the other thread. EliteXC was on Showtime, and CBS is owned by Showtime. Basicaly the same company moving some programming.
