The Original Fighter Introduction Cards used by “The Voice of the Octagon” Bruce Buffer at UFC 232, Will Be Up for Auction Starting Sunday, Jan. 6.
LAS VEGAS – Famed UFC ring announcer, often credited as “The Voice of the Octagon,” Bruce Buffer, has partnered with Las Vegas based celebrity sports and memorabilia company, Inscriptagraphs, to auction off the official UFC 232 fight night introduction cards, used to introduce each fighter.
MMA enthusiasts can bid to score the octagon-used fight cards from the highly-talked about UFC event (Saturday, Dec. 29) on Inscriptagraphs.com starting at 2 pm PST on Sunday, Jan. 6. All cards are available for auction individually including the main event fights featuring Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson, Cris Cyborg vs. Amanda Nunes, Carlos Condit vs. Michael Chiesa, Illir Latifi vs Corey Anderson & Chad Mendes vs. Alexander Volkanovski. Auctions for each card starts at $1– with each auction closing at 2 pm PST on Sunday, Jan. 13.
Additionally, the winners of each introduction card auction receive a personalized 8x10 autographed Buffer photo, a “personalized audio recording introducing the winning buyers in championship ring style format” and a signed UFC Topps card. In addition, the winners of the Jones vs. Gustafsson and Cyborg vs. Nunes cards will receive a signed program by Buffer from the UFC 232 event. Every fight introduction card is colorfully and meticulously filled out with notes by Bruce and pronunciations, enunciations, fight results, tips and emphasizations. Each introduction card purchase comes complete with a letter of authenticity by Inscriptagraphs Memorabilia and Bruce Buffer to guarantee the card and signature validity on every card.
A portion of the proceeds from the auction will benefit the Make A Wish Foundation who arrange experiences described as “wishes” to children diagnosed with critical illnesses.
Buffer is a longtime UFC announcer who has missed but a handful of fights over his 23 plus years with the company, having first entered the Octagon at UFC 8 in Bahaman, Puerto Rico in 1996. His signature calls, including “It’s time!” have become mainstays at UFC events.
UFC 232 took place at The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., on Saturday, Dec. 29, after controversially moving the fight from Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena with six days notice.
