    Michael Jackson tribute to be played at UFC 100

    Although rock band Limp Bizkit was originally scheduled to perform at UFC 100 in the Mandalay Bay Events Center, it appears that Zuffa will be replacing their segment with a timely tribute to the ‘King of Pop’ – Michael Jackson who has recently passed away at the age of 50.
    Jackson was known to be an avid mixed martial arts fan who secretly attended many UFC events. He was seen last seen at UFC 84 in May of 2008 concealing his identity to avoid gernering media attention, the president of the UFC Dana White praised Jackson for attending past UFC events and for his continuous support for mixed martial arts ;
    I know Michael attended live UFC events a few times in the past. You know we lost a great ambassador for the sport and he truly help the sport grow, so offering a tribute is the least we can do.
    White then announced a special post fight ceremony to be held where Michael Jackson will be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.
    I know the hall of fame is more for the fighters, but Michael helped the sport grow so I think we can make an exception in this one instance.
    Many fighters under the UFC banner were influenced by Jacksons music including the current UFC Middleweight champion – Anderson Silva who himself expressed his interest in taking part in the tribute:
    I first heard his music when I was very young. He touched me very much back then, I would love to perform ‘Thriller’ in honour of my idol. He [Jackson] deserves a good send off and I am happy that [the] UFC is paying their tribute to a legend.
    Others influenced by Micheal Jackson included former Welterweight champion Matt Hughes,
    “I know people think of me as just a country music fan, but his [Jackson's] music transcended all social bounds. I would have to say my favourite song of his was ‘Dirty Diana’. I can remember days when I didn’t feel like training and I used to put that song on and it would get me fired up.”

    By secretly attending a UFC incognito he's now an ambassador for the sport. And a Hall of Famer. This is a wind up, right?

    Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

    Anderson Silva who himself expressed his interest in taking part in the tribute:
    "I first heard his music when I was very young. He touched me very much back then, I would love to perform ‘Thriller’ in honour of my idol".

    Let's hope they play this

    YouTube - The Jackson Five - I Want You Back

    One of the great singles of all time. So much soul for a little kid. What happened?

    Anyone else find it annoying as hell that despite being shunned for the last decade for being a pedophile, Michael Jackson is suddenly a hero again?

    On the other hand, as terrible an idea as a MJ tribute at UFC 100 is, it's better than Limp Bizkit...

    MJ like to watch sweaty men roll around the floor together?

    No, I'm not surprised.
