Homer Simpson probably holds the distinction of being the world’s most famous yellow guy but prior to that, it was the Lego minifigure, who recently saw a resurgence in popularity thanks to the hilarious and charming Lego movies.
What does that have to do with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC)?
The world’s preeminent mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion is holding its latest combat sports event on ESPN+ this Sat. (Sept. 28, 2019) inside Royal Arena in Copenhagen, Denmark, not far from the toy company’s home base in Billund.
So as a special treat for UFC fans, designers reimagined the UFC Copenhagen headliners, along with promotion president Dana White, as Lego minifigures in what can only be called an improvement on all fronts.
Have a look:
UFC bantamweight Cody Garbrandt’s take? “Same shaped head.”
My first Lego minifigure was the little astronaut who lived a very short life. Regrettably, my dad stepped on him in the middle of the night en route to the bathroom and yeah ... Astro Boi was promptly laid to rest in a yellow, watery grave.
