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.

I heard that UFC keeps the salaries low to help people make weight

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.
