Fans went nuts when Bruce Buffer announced the start of Monday Night Football in Las Vegas

Veteran UFC announcer Bruce Buffer lends voice to kick off the start of the NFL Las Vegas Raiders’s season during Monday Night Football broadcast.

The NFL Raiders team may be new to Las Vegas, but as any UFC fan knows, the “Fight Capital of the World” has long been entertaining fans with captivating sport coming live from the Octagon. Serving as the UFC headquarters, the Octagon has welcomed fans from all over the sports world — and now, they’ve officially welcomed NFL fans.

For the Raiders’ major primetime debut in a heavily-packed Allegiant Stadium, there was no one better to pump up the crowd than Octagon fixture Bruce Buffer.

With his trademark enthusiasm, the “Veteran Voice of the Octagon” dropped his famous “It’s Time!” catch phrase to an animated crowd of thousands.

Twitter fans also joined in to comment about the Las Vegas hero’s appearance on Monday Night Football.


The heralded arrival of the Las Vegas Raiders presents an exciting opportunity for more professional sports crossovers — perhaps Bruce Buffer could turn up at future NBA or MLB games if the leagues ever come to the city.
