As noted by Kotaku AU (opens in new tab), Halo 5 is clearly emptying the cash bucket over an upcoming fight between UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier and contender Alexander Gustafsson. Leading to the kind of tweets that no one ever says without plenty of $$$$$$$$$$ to make them hit send.
@AlexTheMauler I’m gonna make you tap faster than someone mashing buttons while playing #Halo5 #UFC192September 28, 2015
@AlexTheMauler you’re gonna lose so badly that you’ll wish Spartan Locke would put you out of your misery #UFC192 #Halo5September 28, 2015
@dc_mma Cortana’s hologram would be more of a challenge than you #UFC192 #Halo5September 28, 2015
Although, top marks to Alex for getting both the name and release date in this one. Well done, round of applause. Have a Lambo.
@dc_mma #HALO5 is coming out 10/27. That should give you something to do while you’re healing from the beating I’m going to give you #UFC192September 29, 2015
Just imagine the meeting that lead up to the contracts being signed on this.
"From my personal account?"
"Let me see the cheque again."
[Faint rustle of paper, followed by the sound of a pen scratching.]
Best of all is just how dismissive Daniel is about it all in this clip. He's taken the money and gives precisely zero fucks.
ICYMI: UFC Light Heavyweight Champ @dc_mma has some choice words on Twitter for his #UFC192 opponent @AlexTheMauler https://t.co/GtSOgeXOPKSeptember 29, 2015
I can't wait to see what happens in the actual fight. If Master Chief doesn't walk around the ring holding up round numbers then Microsoft hasn't paid enough.
