Machida vs. Shogun II gets out of Floyd Mayweather’s way

Before I get into the meat of things make sure you check out the video below. It’s really one of the best UFC promos ever. No annoying voiceover from the UFC’s equivalent of the movie trailer guy (“In a world where…), cool taiko drums, set a mood for what should be a classic clash. [Ed. note: Scott Wallace over at the BJJ blog ScottOnTheNet confirmed my suspicions that this is a fan promo by Socawarrior. There's no way the UFC would come with something this cool.] Okay, onward:

UFC president Dana White doesn’t think much of the way professional boxing handles itself. It’s a joke, in his eyes. But that’s not stopping him from getting the hell out of the way when he sees a freight train headed his way.

UFC 113, originally scheduled for May 1 in Montreal, will move to May 8 because the previous date is also when Floyd Mayweather will headline a pay-per-view against Shane Mosley. Lyoto Machida vs. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua II will still be the main event at UFC 113, although the long-awaited, much-hyped clash between Rashad Evans and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson is expected to move to UFC 114 on May 29 in Las Vegas. That date, of course, puts it just a couple of weeks in advance of the June 11 release of the A-Team movie in which Rampage co-stars.

Just a note bro – that is an unofficial UFC promo – It’s indie made by a guy called socawarrior
