Justin Bieber infects the UFC

For the longest time, I had no idea who Justin Bieber was, and life was good. Now he’s grown so massive that even a shit-covered hoarder / fat cat guy / shut-in like me can’t seem to escape his reach. But he took it too fucking far now: on Saturday night he showed up at UFC 132, and now I’m 8throat-puke* blogging about him on Fightlinker:

Justin Bieber knocked out Ultimate Fighting Championship head Dana White’s Twitter feed while fighter Dominick Cruz was taking down Urijah Faber in front of a star-studded crowd at UFC 132 in Las Vegas Saturday night. When Bieber, who was in the house at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, sent out a series of Tweets that he was “chillin’ ” with White, the UFC kingpin’s feed got so much traffic from Biebs’ fans that his BlackBerry crashed and his account went silent for the rest of the night.

Considering Twitter is always about half a sneeze away from going code red failwhale, it’s no surprise that getting Bieber’d would kill Dana’s twitter. I hear they’ve got a dozen supercomputers sitting in a datacenter who’s sole purpose is to handle several hundred million squealing tweens’ obsession with the apparent second coming of Christ, Justin Bieber.

    Again Canada blights the globe with an awful pop star. Were Celine Dion and Nickelback not enough for you monsters?

    The kid is from my home town (Stratford, ON) and he has literally brought hundreds of thousands (if not millions) in tween tourism into the community of 30,000. They shot a 3D feature film there which is just madness. Sure, he’s an annoying little pop-tart that performs music so gay that homosexuals even shun it, but believe it or not he’s a pretty nice guy to the locals when he comes back (I know this for a fact) and his fame has seemed to benefit the town as a whole.

    It’s sort of lame that he’s at UFC events, but if it brings a million more young eyeballs to the sport then is that such a bad thing? Kevin James and David Spade are just terrible, at least Bieber is still a relevant celebrity.

    As I live in Toronto now and don’t have to deal with any of the tween tourism directly, I’m appreciate of the positive things the kid has brought to Stratford. Now that I’ve written this I’ll sit back and wait for the impending ridicule – I know that I deserve it, but I meant every word that I wrote! Flame on!

    The last thing we need is a million moms freaking out over MMA because their Bieber-loving kid talked them into ordering a UFC and saw a particularly bloody fight. Shit like that is how you end up with video game rating systems, the PMRC and so on.

    lmao @ leti

    @ scissors61 – very good point. Young kids shouldn’t be watching a combat sport that they or their parents don’t understand. Especially when said parents are over protective morons who would prefer banning something for everyone instead of actually parenting their children. I also forget that people get so upset over television and video game violence in the States. It’s not really as much of a political issue in Canada.

    I was just thinking of the potential for future growth as these Bieber fans become adults and a new generation of MMA fans. Obviously they can’t buy PPV’s or really inject the sport with direct revenue right now, but MMA traffic is generally a good thing (providing silly parents don’t freak the fuck out if their kids show interest in combat martial arts).

    yeah wtf, the last thing we need is a tween surge towards UFC, that’s the wrong kind of publicity. maybe they’ll have to open up a tween division just for Bieber and horodecki

    ^stop fucking with the beliebers bro.

  • frickshun

    What in the fuck are you guys talking about?? Maybe he’s a fan. Maybe he got free tix (well, that’s definite). Maybe he wanted to spend time w/his daddy. WHO FUCKING CARES??

    PS: Rihanna was there too. I’d love to fuck The Biebs while she watched.

    ^That would be magical!

    i wonder who is going to blame Bieber-Fever the next time they get popped for PEDs?
