What is the Bruce Buffer and Buffer Family Legacy in the ...

Bruce Buffer, born May 21, 1957, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is a legendary figure in the UFC as the official octagon announcer for the sport. Buffer is famously introduced on broadcasts as the "Veteran Voice of the Octagon."


Early Life and Career

The story behind Bruce Buffer being a celebrated UFC broadcaster is forever attached to his family tree, especially with his half-brother Michael Buffer in the limelight as well. Both successful within boxing and professional wrestling as the ring announcers. Both of the Buffer brothers have left behind a lasting legacy in combat sports, proven both have broken into their respective fields. One of the biggest staples of UFC events is Bruce with his larger-than-life catchphrases and signature move, the Buffer 180.


UFC and Other Contributions


Bruce Buffer has been a consistent figure around UFC events, since his debut at UFC 8 in 1996, and landed the full-time ring announcer gig starting with UFC 13. His reach goes farther than just the UFC - appearing in other MMA promotions around the world, K-1 events, and crossing over into entertainment with roles in TV shows and movies, including Friends and Hot Tub Time Machine 2.


Family Legacy and Impact

This is seen not only in the successes of Bruce and Michael but also in the broader reach of the Buffer family. Bruce, whose family has been a part of combat sports since the early 1900s, also does his part to continue the family tradition as the President and CEO of The Buffer Partnership. Through his black belt in Tang Soo Do and his kickboxing days, it's apparent Buffer has always been dedicated to martial arts, only solidifying the family's influence on combat sports.


Evolution and Recognition


The UFC Recognizes Bruce Buffer

This included his catchphrases and showmanship, which have since become legendary, and his very appearance at UFC events has since become a fond tradition for both fans and fighters. Some of the ways he continues to adapt to the UFC's ever-evolving production demands have helped solidify his Hall of Fame credentials as one of the top announcers in the business today. Buffer is a great announcer and is heavily praised by UFC President Dana White as well.

 

Cultural Relatability & Real Life

In addition to his career-related milestones, Bruce Buffer has also got an interesting side to his personal life and his interests. His work in the realm of video games, connection with independent music artists, and even his entry into the game of poker all together portray a rather complex image of 67 and his current relevancy within the culture.


The Overview

With Bruce and Michael as great storytellers, it is now part of combat sports lore that will never be erased from the memories of fans worldwide. Bruce's one-of-a-kind voice and undying commitment to the UFC have made him a part of MMA culture forever, forever making the Buffer family name synonymous with the best of combat sports.
All in all, the trip Bruce Buffer took  to the top of UFC announcing is a testament to his utter dedication to and his raw, unbridled love of combat sports. His legacy will not only endure in the UFC, but in the Buffer family lineage as a whole, keeping their mark on the world of sports entertainment for countless decades to come.
