Zuffa and UFC have a porn headache to deal with

By Zach Arnold | April 29, 2010

Marketplace confusion?

My old friend Mikeinformer, one of the greatest men ever on the Internet in terms of finding me obscure article links, sent me a link that I had to blink twice before I realized that it was a true story.

AVN, which is the porn industry’s top media outlet, announced that someone named Russ Meyers is doing a web site and DVD series called Ultimate Gay Fighter. If you look at the AVN article, it shows the logo for this… unique… film and how the styling is similar to the UFC logo that Zuffa has been using for years.

The fact that this porn producer is using Ultimate Fighter in the URL for his web site is enough for Zuffa and Spike TV to sick the lawyers on him.

With a teaser like this, what could go wrong?

By combining the kind of action frequently associated with Ultimate Fighting Championship and other mixed martial arts bouts with explicit man-on-man sex, Meyers has set a goal of providing viewers more than just another sex tape.

A post like this is truly inviting some frightening comments. Which is why I turned comments off.
