Dana White: 'I’d rather let Brock punch me in the face than hear 15,000 people blow vuvuzelas'




"This decision was pretty simple for me. 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. This is the biggest heavyweight fight we've ever done. We'll make enough noise this weekend when Brock and Shane finally step inside the Octagon."

I don't know if I've ever been more in agreement with Dana White than I am with his take on the dreaded vuvuzela. If you have at all followed the 2010 World Cup, you are surely familiar with the headache-inducing noisemaker. If you haven't followed the 2010 World Cup, I envy you for a number of reasons. Suffice it to say, if you were planning on bringing your big horn that makes others around you wish they, well, weren't around you, do not. Though I'm not quite sure where the UFC got the idea that because we were all unfortunately introduced to this devil-made whistle during a soccer game in South Africa, all of America suddenly went to their local Target store to pick one up. Tell me I'm right on that assumption, Maniacs. Please, tell me I'm right.
