UFC Site Coordinator Burt Watson Discusses Booking Event Locations
Posted by Larry Csonka on 12.27.2012



- UFC Site Coordinator Burt Watson recently spoke about his work on UFC events. Here are the highlights…

On Setting Up UFC 147: "It was just as it was billed up to be. All the hype, Chael being Chael, Anderson being Anderson. And then somewhere close to the fight, Anderson decided he was going to talk back a little. That was not Anderson Silva, but it's one of those things you can push and push and push – and someone's going to pull or push back."

On Treating All Events as Big Events: "They're all big to me," he said. "My game plan and what i do for each event is the same. The lights get a little brighter, but the temperature has to stay the same for me. I can't let the lights dictate how I prepare for it or treat the fighters. If I do, something falls off the table and I can't afford to have that. I go with the flow (on fight night), but I feel it afterward. My adrenaline goes up and down. But at the end of the night, or the day after, it comes down on me. And I just say, 'Damn – I gave it that one.'"

On Not Watching The Fights: "I don't have time (to watch the fights)," Watson said. "My eye its rained to catch that clock, and that clock tells me if I have to move. That stuff is so timed that those guys have to be in the holding area at a specific time, or somebody's not going to be happy. I don't watch the fights. I absolutely don't."

On The Timing of Events: "The fights are timed to the minute – especially now, since we're on three different networks, because other things have to go in there," he said. "You've got B-roll, tale of the tape, so they have to be timed. It's better for me when the fights go as scheduled as opposed to quick, because then that time has to be filled and I have to be wing it. I don't know the time, but I know I've got to be ready. If they say we have to put something in the cage without ring walk music, I have to prepare the fighters for that. Fight night, they're all different people."
