Bruce Buffer is definitely one of the best in the business. The longtime UFC announcer has made the lucrative gig into his defining move. Buffer is very professional and usually fool proof but mistakes happen and one incredibly rare snafu happened overnight at UFC Vegas 57.
Buffer was in the middle of announcing Ulberg vs Tafon Nchukwi when he accidentally introduced Nchukwi as if he was from Florida – and not Cameroon.

Nchukwi was mildly amused at the screw up – which Buffer immediately corrected.
Ulberg was booked to meet another heavy hitter in Tafon Nchukwi.
The two traded low kicks early in round 1. Following the exchange Ulberg jabbed Nchukwi and noticed him start to lose consciousness. Upon this, he unleashed a flurry of lefts and rights that ultimately rendered Nchukwi passed out on the floor.

This victory makes Ulberg 2-1 inside the UFC. Nchukwi drops to 2-3 in the UFC and his future is unsafe in the promotion.

Ulberg was cheered on by Israel Adesanya who was on hand to prep for UFC 276 headliner. He went straight from the victory to go train with Adesanya to help him prep for his pending match.
