Ugly Duckling in Japanese Mixed Martial Arts?!?

Post  jaytan on Tue Mar 17, 2009 7:27 pm

Hey Guys, its ironic that the forum just went up, because I just had the most random UD sightings last night on TV.

Dunno who does / doesn't know what MMA is, but suffice to say "that UFC cagefighting thing," for the uninitiated. Like Andy, Dizzy, and Einstein, MMA is big in Japan, and I was watching a broadcast of "Dream 7: Featherweight Grand Prix" on HD-Net and lo and behold, I hear "Turn It Up" as the intro music.

Japanese MMA promotions are known for their pomp and circumstance grand openings at the beginning of each show, and this one was no different. But it was hella random to hear the UDs on, of all things, a Japanese fight show!!

Here's the link to the opening. Ironically enough, the video was disabled because, ahem, they apparently didn't have the copyright to use the song. Go figure.

But if you guys get HD-Net on your cable / satellite dish, look for the "Heiwa Dream 7 Featherweight GP." Maybe it won't have been edited off replays.

PEACE TO THE UDS!!!

Yeah i've heard UD pop up in some pretty random places, BBC3 must love them, heard quite a few of their songs on random shows with people talking about the 90's and stuff. (I think it was Shoot Your Shot)

Just checked the link. Seems like the sound and music was taken of. Dont think it was authorized. It might be that our Japanese label or Publisher had something to do with it? I was just kidding about the royalty statement.. Free Pub, thats how I look at it..

I think Johnny Vegas likes UD, cos they were always played on IDeal.
