UFC is on some next-level shit for UFC 126

I must say, this is pretty goddamn cool. Four angles of a fight at once? The ability to listen to fighters’ corners instead of Goldberg’s carnival barking for the latest shitty-ass Jason Statham movie? Built-in DVR controls? I have a boner. This is probably a good indication of where we’re going to see the UFC’s PPV model going in the next five to ten years, and I like what I’m seeing so far.

At the link you can also launch a demo of the new player using the first round of Maynard/Edgar 2, and hear the truly horrified voices of Frank Edgar’s cornermen as they watch him get battered around the ring. Mmmm…sadism.

    Assuming it’s really live, I wonder if corners are going to spy on other corners with that thing.

    watch what you fucking say about jason stathom bitch.

  • frickshun says:

    ^^Agreed. I have a mancrush on him.

  • Grappo says:

    I’ve said it before, they need to implement the Chuck-Cam. Just a little PIP in the corner of the screen that is trained on Chuck Liddell while he watches the fights. I would shell out a couple more bucks for that.

    Other than that, the only thing I care about is the ability to silence Goldberg’s audio feed. I don’t give a fart about clicking around, switching camera angles while I’m watching a fight.

    JS is this generations JCVD. He was awesome in The Expendables and he’s banging a super model. How can you hate on that!?

  • agentsmith says:

    The #1 thing missing from the UFC’s commentary has always been play-by-play, cause Rogan is more of an analyst, and Goldberg used to be the stats/trivia-bot, but now he doesn’t even do that cause he’s too busy shilling shit.  So now it’s all up to Rogan, but he has to wait for Goldberg to stop yapping about whatever until he can actually DISCUSS THE FUCKING FIGHT.

    Some people may not like The Voice’s style, but at least he’s a proper play-by-play announcer.  Schiavello doing announcing with Rogan doing analysis would be the tits, I tell you.

    @ Butters – Statham plays a pussy in his best 2 flicks (lock stock and two smoking barrels and snatch) movies like crank/the transporter/the expendables are fun to watch but aren’t for shit but making truckloads of money off of Lowest Common Denominator retards that think that using your brain during a movie is too difficult

    although i did like the italian job, the one and war

    p.s JCVD would NEVER be involved in this bullshit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gnomeo_and_Juliet

  • FiveBoltMain says:

    whatev!

  • Duffman says:

    Did any of you guys hear one guy from Frankies corner yelling, throw in the towel!!

    Wow, If I were Frankie I would be pissed if someone did that.

  • pewnt says:

    glassjawsh,

    Your man crush on JCVD aside……..look before you talk. Spewing that much hate at Statham is just asking to be proved wrong.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1302011/

    JCVD – Voice – Master Croc.

    Here let me start your retort for you:

    “Kung Fu Panda is so much better than a Romeo & Juliet knock off using Gnomes to appeal to children………. ”

  • chim55 says:

    Sky TV in the UK has been doing this exact shit for football, rugby, tennis golf and more for about 10 years for no extra cost.

    Its called the Red Button. I feel sorry for you yanks and Canuks if this is so impressive to you.

  • glassjawsh says:

    i actually like statham a lot as an actor, i just think that a lot of the movies he’s done recently are LCD lowbrow bullshit

  • Letibleu says:

    Grappo, I would love the Chuck cam. If 10,000 viewers hit the red button at the same time, Chuck sniffs a line and the cam zooms in :p

    Ohhhhh….I see. Your a “fan”.

    At the very least Statham can pull off roles that Stallone, Arnold, Segal, and JCVD have no chance of pulling off.

    Next can you please tell me how all the weather effects in “The Day After Tomorrow” could happen in the real world. How about “How much smarter the Smurfs are compared to the Fraggles”. Your asking a action star to be a fucking thespian.

    If you want to make fun of Butters, put some effort into it…..

  • G Funk says:

    Butters is a bitch and you’re a tool! See Pewnani, no effort and it works!

  • pewnt says:

    Ohhh burn, I wish I had your rapist wit. I might be able to get a job as a writer for Family Guy.

  • scissors61 says:

    I don’t give a fart about clicking around, switching camera angles while I’m watching a fight.

    Me neither but the cool thing is you get access to the event for 24 hours after you order it, so you can go back and watch fights from different angles, which is something I definitely plan on doing. You may all continue fighting over Jason Statham now. 

  • DJ ThunderElbows says:

    Pewnt, I always saw you as more of a “Cleveland Show” kinda guy.

  • pewnt says:

    lol

    I agree Scissors some of the features seem cool. I’m going to wait for a smaller card to try it out. Don’t want my stream to fuck up on this one.

  • scissors61 says:

    Yeah, this one I’m ordering on the TV but I think I’ll test this shit out on the BJ/Fitch fight. I’ve watched that Maynard/Edgar round with Frankie’s corner on audio like, 7 times now. I laugh every time the guy screams “THROW IN THE FUCKIN TOWEL! JESUS FUCKING CHRIST!” 

  • FiveBoltMain says:

    STFU G(uido)!!

  • iamphoenix says:

    stathom is so hot right now. stathom.

  • subo says:

    I enjoyed how silent Maynard’s corner got during the beat down.  “Stay out of his way” was apparently the prevailing sentiment.  Either that or “WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT AND WHAT HAS IT DONE WITH GRAY MAYNARD”

  • theinsaneoneJustinMcCully says:

    It appears I need a cpu upgrade!

  • Letibleu says:

    Your 486 just isn’t cutting it… If you don’t know what i’m talking about, don’t bother.

  • Predator8u says:

    WHY THE FUCK WOULD ANYONE EVER WANT TO GO TO A SHITTY EVENT now. before you’d only see 25% of the action, AND thats when the other 75% of the time the fat camera man or the cage isnt blocking it. SO your just loking at the huge screens anyway.

    THE JUDGE’s SHOULD be FORCED to use this.. hELL YA..  come on

    SORRY ABOUT CAPS

  • theinsaneoneJustinMcCully says:

    It runs horrible on an X2, on an i7 it’s runs smooth most of the time (still frequent frame skips)
