Vuvuzela's banned at Brock Carwin.
Found this in the Sydney Morning Herald:
No vuvuzela's at the UFC! Classic. How many people were going to take them, I wonder? I doubt there'd be that many, the fucking things are annoying to the point of infuriating.
This article gives me the shits, the UFC is funding this journalists trip over to see the Brock v Carwin event and the guy can't even get Dana White's name right, calling him Dan White. He obviously has no interest in the sport. Pisses me off because I've been campaigning to be their MMA correspondent for a year and they have been telling me there is nothing for me, yet they send someone with minimal knowledge on the sport to cover such a big event? I should challenge him to name just one rule and stand there with a vuvuzela, when he gets it wrong, blast the vuvuzela in his face.
Him: Umm, trick question, there are no rules.
Me: BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ ZZ
I was passed over for UFC 101 in favor of a baseball writer who had never seen an MMA match. Not only does it happen, but it's part of the UFC's core strategy to issue credentials to the unknowledgeable.

Reflecting on the commentators of the first few UFCs, that might not be incorrect.
Fair enough. Still sucks though.
I have a vuvuzela app on my ipod touch because I find it hilarious. Got nothin on me now, MGM!
Don't get me wrong, it's god damn annoying, but it's also funny. Hell, vuvuzela jokes still make me laugh, even though they're essentially all the same jokes.
Am I the only one that FUCKING LOOOOOOOOVES the vuvuzela?

Actually, if I was fighting, I might almost appreciate it since I don't have to hear the fucking crowd trying to give me advice.
