Default Dana White and The UFC ban...

...Vuvuzela

"This decision was pretty simple," White said. "Vuvuzelas make the most horrific sound I've ever heard. I'd rather let Brock punch me in the face than hear 15,000 people blow on those things

I figured Dana would be all over this totally awesome chance at a viral marketing campaign...

Kinda like the Florida Marlins did a week ago...

The UFC should make their own official "Groan Tubes" and hand them out to everybody who has a ticket to the fight. It would be embraced by all, and it would make these boring fights more entertaining.

I agree with DW except I'd have Brock punch those idiots who are blowing those vuvuzelas and making that awful noise in the face!

It was horrible enough through the tv; I can't imagine being there LIVE!

Let's be serious for a minute here guys...

Who the hell brings a Vuvuzela to the fights? Nobody does.

Well played by Dana to ride the coat-tails of the World Cup though, UFC 116 will get a free plug from a lot of extra sports media.

You know SOME morons would bring those things to the fights. Even a couple in the crowd would be too many.

They would probably get it taken away anyway, or get beat with it.

Arena's don't typically allow that kind of stuff in the first place, and besides that is some crappy Soccer fad that nobody in America cares about. It's been popular in the news, so Dana makes a little statement, then all the sports websites and shows make a mention of it, and UFC 116 gets a free plug.

If anything, Dana is just subliminally encouraging to people to want do something stupid like that.

Vevuzela....nobody even knew what that was until a month ago...

Not to mention, those things are loud as hell in outdoor stadiums...even a few would just sound embarrassingly loud with the acoustics of most arenas. lol
