Default Has anyone of you ever heard Buffer or Lennon make a mistake?

Has anyone of you ever heard Buffer or Lennon make a mistake when announcing a fight?

I haven't.

If they have, could you tell me about it, or better yet, link it.

I once saw Buffers kid brother make one in the UFC.

It's a tough business.

I still can't forget buffer screwing up darren barker's name when he fought Sergio Martinez. when he was introducing the fighters he said darren baker that was funny.I was there in person for that fight.

Have to watch that one.

Also, his voice is about to go. How old is he? 70? You can hear that his voice isn't as strong as it was 20 years ago.

No I did not know that. He must be pretty strong to bounce back from something like that. I hope he has many years left in him.

That Diamante guy with dreads, its pretty apparent he has really bad OCD, he repeats their last name twice, but he tries to slip the second one in inconspicuously.

But haven't heard Buffer and Lennon f up.

I used to have pretty bad OCD, he tries to hide it by making it seem like its for effect, Trust me I know it when I see it. Subtle ticks give people away all the time .

Buffer called Sturm the winner in the fight v Soliman, had to re-announce it and he apologized to soliman, straight after. Best ring announcer ever though in my opinion.

He forgot to say "Let's get ready to rumble" for Mayweather-Ortiz before the introductions. He did it after, just before the bell rang, lol
