It's an average song with a strong Pavlovian response. No reason to replace it.

I agree, but there a couple of songs I could suggest (Volbeat).

Stemm is awesome. I saw them live with Trivium before their TUF/UFC deal...was a quality shindig.

Like Goldberg, love him or hate him, the UFC won't be the same with out him/the song...and Bruce Buffer for that matter

Sorry but that song is garbage, and does nothing but reinforce the stereotypical image of mma fans as mouthbreathing trailer trash

Haha why are you so worried about how others see MMA fans? What's your choice for an upper class high society intro song?

Love the fucking song. Gets me pumped in the arena.

Get rid of that NFL theme shit instead.

Fair enough, but I'm not representing a sport on national television. I get that it's really not that big of an issue to bitch about, but come on after all these years nobody's thought of a better alternative? I watch mma with a couple different groups of people with differing opinions, but literally all of them mock the song when it comes on

Me too. Its a guilty pleasure. Not going to sing along with it or anything like that, but it does make me happy

The only song they could replace it with is Baba O'Rielly anyway and that would cost a small fortune.

What are people getting all hung up about anyway, its a song? It plays for all of 30 secs to 2 minutes. seriously get a grip people.

they do play Baba O'Reilly and have a video for it before each event, but you can only see it when you are in the venue. Amazing video

Fuck all Nu-metal and Metal core. Thrash or die! That being said I like having the song as part of the package I love coming up with my own lyrics and mocking it with my friends, like others have said it's just part of the package at this point like Goldberg and Buffer.

edit- I think Damage incorporated would be my choice though.

Yeah, a small part of me dies whenever this song is played in the remote vicinity of the UFC

Time to end this suffering
I need a minute to my-self
So I can drift away
You will never get to me, what can be done i'll do myself
So i can slip away
Watch you rise, and watch you fall
Watch you losing control
Now i see the way
Watch you rise, and watch you fall
Now im about to break
Watch you rise, and watch you fall
Watch you loosing control(Crawl inside my head)
Watch you rise, and watch you fall
Now im about to break
Face the pain, no escape can you step to this
Face the pain, Face the pain, It's ripping me into pieces
Face the pain, no escape can you step to this
Face the pain, Face the pain, It's ripping me into pieces
Face this mirrior in front of me, i see the image of myself
So i can drift away
My thought runs deep, i've trained to meet
Our solders are advancing south
So i can slip away
Watch you rise, and watch you fall
Watch you losing control
Now i see the way
Watch you rise, and watch you fall
Now im about to break
Watch you rise, and watch you fall
Watch you losing it all
Crawl inside my head
Watch you rise, and watch you fall
Now im about to break
Face the pain, no escape can you step to this
Face the pain, Face the pain, It's ripping me into pieces
Face the pain, no escape can you step to this
Face the pain, Face the pain, It's ripping me into pieces
watch you rise, and watch you fall
Watch you rise, and watch you fall
watch you losing control
Watch you losing control
Watch you rise, and watch you fall
Now im about to break
Break
Now im about to break
Face the pain, no escape can you step to this
Face the pain, Face the pain, It's ripping me into pieces
Face the pain, no escape can you step to this
Face the pain, Face the pain, It's ripping me into pieces
rippppp..iinnnng....me
In to pieces
rippppp..iinnnng....me
In to pieces


The UFC intro pumps me up about as much as the Smurfs theme song does. But I know the UFC won't change anything, they think the fans are too dumb to realize it's a UFC event unless it has the same intro it always has....

This song was okay when it was new and old 10 years ago and sucks now, no surprise Zuffa is keeping it. How about something new? This threads responses are extremely really weird. This song is Bruce Buffer.
