Viewers who saw UFC 143 this weekend had a chance to see the new pay-per-view opening as well. The gladiator has been retired from broadcast, and taking his place is a new video entitled “Evolution,” which features a musical score from the prolific Hans Zimmer.
According to Dana White, the video cost “an obscene amount of money” to produce, and their efforts show. Fans are still on the fence about whether they like it or not, so here is your chance to chime in and give some feedback on this video. I like the new opening, and while it may look a wee bit cheesy, the UFC gladiator was far cheesier – we just got used to him. I do not like the UFC octagon logo however, and would rather see the three letters in place of it, so that is my nitpick. Time for you to tell me yours!
