Default Greatest Ever!! Biggest Fight Ever! Bal. Bla...

Has anyone noticed that these words are used for every UFC. I know that they have to sell the matches and build up the excitement to attract fans and make money but sometimes I feel its over-used. It won't stop me from watching however.
Sometimes I feel that if you were to start a drinking game at the beginning of a UFC PPV and take a drink for every time the words amazing, greatest/best in UFC history and unbelieveable were used you would pass out before the first fight.
(Just speaking for myself, I'm sure that most people could last half way thru the first round of the first match )

Yeah, I was laughing when I heard BJ call his matchup with GSP, "The greatest event in MMA ever." or something like that. It's quite overblown in the UFC. IMO, until Anderson Silva faces Fedor, we'll never see that, lol

We do that we Joe Rogan and Goldberg...

Metortic Rise = 1 shot
My Hero = 1 shot
On the Button = 2 shots
Amazing = 1 shot
This place is electric = 1 shot
Elite Level = 1 shot

And all the Randy Names

And so on...

Yes, I have a few people crashing on my sofas from time to time.

The Brock/Mir fight will be a hard one to remember if we do the game that night.

It's called salesmanship and promotion and Dana is an expert.

Look out how much time and effort each one of us spends watching or discussing MMA and the guys that participate in the "sport".

None of them have important jobs compared to soldiers, teachers, policemen, firefighters or heck even the guy who pours your coffee. (I leave out politicians... because we'll I'm undecided on really how important their jobs are...).

OK, when's the next SUPA-FIGHT!!! ;)

Here's a few more:

Throws punches from very odd angles

His Jiu Jitsu/cardio is off the charts

chess match

it doesn't get any better than this?

Are you kidding me!!!

Since they are talking of a possible rematch between GSP and BJ Penn they will throw forth all the same phrases with 'Once Again......." beginning every sentence. Or put alot of emphasis on "THIS is the biggest........."
