New music on the way for the UFC

I was checking out some headlines this morning and came across this little nugget of info in the Las Vegas Sun:

Move over Killers and Panic at the Disco, another Las Vegas-based band is poised for national recognition.

Hard 8, kicking around the local club scene for six years, has signed an agreement with the UFC to use 17 of the group’s songs during upcoming events.

Ultimate Fighting Championship, based in Las Vegas, is the largest mixed martial arts organization in the world so the band should gain some degree of instant fame.

Why am I even bringing this up? Because I’ve been extremely critical of the UFC for using the same dated rap/metal music beds on its telecasts for what seems like the last 5-6 years. It’s time to “freshen” the broadcasts up a bit. Hopefully Hard 8’s music doesn’t suck and will be used to replace a lot of the stale beds.
