Awesome. I always thought those fan-submitted flyers for MMA events that BloodyElbow used to put up had far more taste, style, and even impact than the official ones. Makes sense that there's a lot of good MMA-inspired art.

Also, this is hilarious.

Every single time. UFC graphic design is stuck in a deep rut. Said rut is also the home of nu-metal and the gladiator dude.

The gladiator dude has been around since UFC 42 at least. Time to die.

The music may be stagnant, but the quality of fights is absolutely unbelievable right now. This is the golden age.

DREAM lost access to the best fighters quite a while ago, but man, their promo design was beautiful.

Imanari hype video
DREAM 11 opening
DREAM 12 opening

Imagine what these guys could do with a UFC event.

On This Day in MMA History: “The Gladiator” Got Axed: "For today, a great man has died, and therefore has taken a piece of us all with him. We’re talking, of course, about none other than the unacknowledged gladiator who’s trials and tribulations were once synonymous with the beginning of every UFC event. We’re talking about the nameless, faceless warrior who could grind sand into…well, sand, in the palm of his hand whilst an epic chorus sang in the background. Though we never knew what lied beyond the blinding white he so courageously stepped into night after night, it seems now that the mysterious abyss was in fact the UFC vault."
