Longtime UFC Ring Announcer Bruce Buffer is Living the Good Life…

He might be 60 years old now, but Bruce Buffer is not slowing down. They say a good wine tastes better with age and that seems to be the case with the UFC’s veteran ring announcer. The man famous for his catchphrase, “IT’S TIME”, is living the good life and having a fantastic week.

Last week it was announced that Buffer would be available as a playable character in the new EA Sports UFC 3 video game. Available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, this news had a very positive reaction from fans. Let’s be real: Bruce Buffer is awesome. He wears the best suits and has the best life.

Case in point on Saturday when Australian professional boxer and swimsuit model Avril Mathie put a picture up of her posing with everyone’s favorite cage announcer. I’m not jealous, I promise. Damn you Bruce Buffer. Damn you.



Buffer is a legend of the UFC. He’s a skilled martial artist in his own right, with black belts in the Korean kicking martial art of Tang Soo Do as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The promo for the EA Sports UFC 3 video game shows him fighting Johnny Hendricks in the middleweight division. Would it be a big surprise if Buffer battered Hendricks in real life?

He also regularly dates models, including some of the most beautiful women in the world. As a professional poker player, he spends his time in luxurious casinos and traveling the world with the UFC. And now Avril Mathie is posting pictures of them hanging out. Not jealous.



Avril Mathie is one of the world’s most recognizable models. She won Miss Swimsuit USA International in 2014. It’s the biggest swimwear modeling competition in the world. The Ozzie hottie started boxing in 2012 and has fought over 20 times to date. Currently based in the US, Mathie has trained with UFC fighters like Felice Herrig in the past.

Mathie is very active on Instagram, posting pictures from professional photoshoots and her daily life. As well as being a professional boxer and model, she’s an entrepreneur in her own right. She captioned the post with Buffer:

“Brunching today with one of my few male friends that would beat me in a fight even at 60 years old.”



Mathie is also a very inspiring figure. She left home at the tender age of 15, with nowhere to live and moved to Miami with no prospects. On her website bio she wrote:

“I’m just a girl having a go at life and I hope that by my example I can inspire others to do the same. I want to show people that an ordinary kid that was kicked out of home at 15 years old and supported herself through the final year of high school can be anything she wants to be.”

Well, she’s clearly doing it right. Kudos to Mathie and to Bruce Buffer as well. They’re living the dream. Keep at it folks and you’ll get there.
