Last night during UFC 175 fighter Marcus Brimage entered the ring with some advanced Saiyan tech last night. Brimage was wearing a “scouter” from the popular Japanese action cartoon Dragon Ball Z. Yes, that strange looking eyepiece isn’t the newest version of Google Glass, it’s from a cartoon. A Japanese cartoon. Many props to Scott Devereaux over on Fancred for this. (If you aren’t on Fancred I don’t know what you are doing with your life.)
In Dragon Ball Z one fighter uses the scouter to size up the other fighter.
The scouter allows them to see the other fighters power level. Usually this leads to them being astonished by it, or talking about how weak they are.
I think it’s pretty funny that Brimage does this, but if he’s going to do it he needs to play it up. I want to see Brimage talking about his opponent’s power level and making a grandiose speech. He needs to explain to his opponents that they don’t know who they are dealing with, he’s a (insert alien, Saiyan Prince, cyborg, or magical being here.)
Of course if Brimage really wants to impress me then I’m going to need him to go Super Saiyan.
And maybe throw a Kamehameha during the fight.
Unfortunately Brimage’s scouter didn’t help him last night, he lost a split decision against Russell Doane.
Some might think that Brimage is a big dork for wearing a DBZ scouter to a fight. It could be worse though, he could have really worn Google Glass.
