Bruce Buffer’s footage of the longest flurry in UFC history is something else


Ben Kiely

Bruce Buffer had one of the best seats in the house for UFC Winnipeg.

After introducing Robbie Lawler and Rafael dos Anjos on Sunday morning, UFC announcer Bruce Buffer took a seat cageside.

He watched on as the tireless former lightweight champion put a five-round beating on the former welterweight king. RDA solidified himself as a genuine contender in the super-stacked 170lbs division with one of his greatest performances to date.

The Brazilian dominated the striking, dominated the grappling and tore up Lawler’s lead leg with ferocious leg kicks to take all five rounds against the legendary fighter. Although ‘Ruthless’ alluded to an injury that may have hampered his movement in the post-fight press conference.

The stand-out moment of the fight was that incredible never-ending flurry from RDA in the second round. He backed Lawler up against the fence and just let fly with his hands. Lawler grinned as he threw his arms up, but a lot of punches penetrated his defence.

Buffer was savvy enough to pick his jaw up off the floor and whip out his camera phone to capture the spectacular moment. The footage he got really showed just how brutal some of those punches were that landed.

The announcer’s footage was shared by Australian kickboxer John Wayne Parr, who was also in attendance.
