Today UFC reporter Megan Olivi is walking around the Super Bowl media day and interviewing NFL stars and having them pose with the UFC belt. Apparently, an NFL official at the event was not happy with it and originally asked them to leave:
Super Bowl Media Day is the NFL's show and while it credentials "reporters" from Nickelodeon (there was a guy dressed as a superhero), Spain (there was a guy dressed as Waldo) and Entertainment Tonight (um, self-explanatory) — it doesn't like anyone infringing on its event. So when an NFL official spotted a woman and a camera crew walking around the Prudential Center floor asking some Broncos to pose with the title belt, that wasn't going to fly.
"What is that?" the NFL official asked.
"The UFC title belt," the woman responded. "Want to hold it?"
Turns out the NFL official — Dennis Kayser, Senior Director of On-Field Operations for the league — didn't. He then politely asked the UFC folks to leave.
"We don't want this around here," he said. "This is wrestling stuff, right? Yeah, we don't want that associated with us and this event. This is the NFL."
