Of course the UFC is doing their usual stuff to promotion UFC 182’s main event between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier, but they’ve gone back to the well of creating a new YouTube channel to post a viral video to pick up some internet street cred. Sure, we don’t know for sure that all of these viral videos are created by the UFC, but the biggest hint is that the UFC is crazy about controlling their content on YouTube and will have anything with “their” footage removed almost immediately.
Remember how hard it was to find that video of Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier off-air after that ESPN interview? They move swiftly and delete just about every fan-made video that hits the intertubes with swift accuracy, so these videos surviving and getting kudos from Dana White and the UFC on Twitter is usually a pretty solid sign these aren’t really made by fans.
These things are always up for debate. The only thing that makes me question this being done by the UFC or not is that there is no official PPV shill at the end like most of UFC’s fake viral videos, but there is a hashtag?
I don’t know. Enjoy, either way, right?
