Life in the Beginning: Bruce Anthony Buffer was born on May 21, 1957, in Tulsa, OK. When he was a teenager, he began training in martial arts while living in Philadelphia with his family. A green judo belt and a black Tang Soo Do belt were his final accomplishments. When Buffer was 15, his family relocated to Malibu. He continued his martial arts training in California and got friends with Chuck Norris. Tang Soo Do was presented to him by Chuck. A kickboxing enthusiast for many years, Buffer was forced to give up the sport by his physicians due to a history of head injuries.
Bruce is known as the “Veteran Voice of the Octagon” during UFC events. He’s also well-known for his signature motions and catchphrases. “Ladies and gentlemen, we…are…live!” he says at the start of each event. As the final two combatants prepare for the main event, Buffer says, “This is the big event of the evening,” followed by, “This is the moment you’ve all been waiting for,” before introducing them. To demonstrate his signature maneuver, “Buffer 180,” he moves across the Octagon and quickly rotates 180 degrees to gesture toward the corner.
Additionally to his job as an announcer for the UFC, Buffer has announced events for international MMA promotions and K-1 fights including Joel Casamayor vs. Michael Katsidis on HBO in 2008 and the Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC) submission wrestling tournament every two years, among others. It’s Time” by DJs Steve Aoki and Laidback Luke is a UFC-inspired tune that features his voice as the official announcer for the World Series of Beer Pong.
Buffer is also an accomplished poker player who has been on ESPN’s World Series of Poker Main Event and on an episode of the television show Poker After Dark. The term “Shuffle up and deal!” was coined by him and a poker room in Luxor Las Vegas has been named after him. Buffer has also appeared in other television shows and films, including “Friends,” “Entourage,” “Hot Tub Time Machine 2,” “Holmes & Watson,” and “Here Comes the Boom” (2018).
Michael Buffer, Buffer’s half-brother, is a world-renowned boxing announcer and a multi-millionaire. In 1989, their father Joe Buffer introduced them to the world. “The Buffer Partnership” is the name of their business. Bruce came up with the notion of trademarking Michael’s catchphrase “Let’s get ready to rumble!” Michael agreed to do so. Michael would go on to make hundreds of millions of dollars from licensing deals and appearance fees thanks to the phrase.
