Sometimes you have to throw your broadcast partners a bone. Such was the case with the UFC and their media day for UFC 169 – which saw six fighters on the top of the card don jerseys representing the two teams who’ll be battling it out at the Super Bowl in nearby East Rutherford, N.J. the day after the fighters battle it out in the Octagon. Wearing the colors of the Denver Broncos were Urijah Faber, Ricardo Lamas and Alistair Overeem, while in Seattle Seahawks jerseys were Jose Aldo, Renan Barao and Frank Mir.
“Orange no good,” said Aldo jokingly, and everyone laughed.
Hey, it’s the fight business. Sometimes you have to do these things.
