Jorge Masvidal shares video of amazing Bruce Buffer impersonator
Bruce Buffer is a synonymous part of the UFC, having been the official octagon announcer since 1996.
Bruce – the brother of legendary boxing ring announcer Michael Buffer – is known as “Veteran Voice of the Octagon”.
His catchphrase “It’s time!” is as much a part of UFC main events as the fights.
Bruce is universally adored by UFC fans around the world, many of whom have no doubt tried his style of announcing at home.
But are any as good as this next guy?
Yesterday, UFC welterweight and “BMF” champion Jorge Masvidal shared an incredible video of a Bruce Buffer impersonator.
Street Judas appeared to be at some kind of signing event when the fan turned up.
The fan proceeded to announce Masvidal in true Bruce-Buffer fashion, and it’s pretty incredible to hear.

However, suggestions that the fan is Bruce Buffer’s son are false.
Bruce is known to have one son, Dougie Buffer, with ex-wife Annie Buffer.
Little is known about Dougie Buffer.
Bruce keeps his son out of the limelight, but he is significantly younger than the fan in question.
Bruce uploaded some pictures of his son to Instagram last year, where we can clearly see he is younger.
