Tonight, UFC President Dana White revealed exclusively to the Underground that the opening sequence for it's PPV broadcast has been redone and the new introduction will be revealed this Saturday for UFC 143. The event will feature Nick Diaz fighting Carlos Condit for the interim welterweight championship in the main event.

The opening sequence, which has shown a Roman gladiator preparing for battle has often been critiqued by fans and although the sequence hasn't been used by the UFC on it's FOX and Fuel TV broadcasts, it had been present as most recent as this past UFC 142.

To quote the UFC President directly: "He's been cut."

I hope they dont change the intro song, that song has become synomonous with the UFC for me; It would be really awkward to hear anything different.

It'll probably be dubstep

Totally down with them changing the footage

But they CAN'T change the song hahaha. It's just to awesome to change to something else, it gets me pumped every time I hear it!

The classical music startup goes with the gladiator scene though? What other scene could you imagine that singing fitting in with, that was periodic at least.

i liked the gladiator thing way more than that cheesy "into pieces" song. that music makes me feel like i am watching monday night raw.

I like the comment from the source page: "Maybe Bellator will pick him up."

The new intro was nothing special, but at least the old boring gladiator is gone.

I guess I'm in the minority here.....but I actually liked that gladiator guy. The video and the music definitely got me amped up!

I hated that he sported a crew cut and mini shield.
