With mixed-martial-arts autobiographies currently among the most popular book titles in the sports category, the "Veteran Voice of the Octagon" is getting in on the action.

Bruce Buffer, the longtime emcee of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, recently announced his plans to pen an autobiography, which he says has already been purchased by Random House.

While the project has not yet been officially announced, Buffer said it's currently titled, "It's Time!" and will debut between sometime around Christmas 2012.

Buffer, the half-brother and manager of fellow famed announcer Michael Buffer, made his octagon debut way back in 1996 at UFC 8. It would be UFC 13 before he became a staple of the company's broadcasts, and even that came only after he was able to get the UFC featured in an episode of "Friends."

For those who listen to his podcasts theyll know what to expect, bragging about the girls he lands and talking about how "classy" he is. I'll give credit where credit's due, the man can announce like its nobodies business but thats actually the only thing I repect about him.

Same here. I haven't liked him since he talked shit with Tito about Chuck after their season of TUF. Just seems like a very shallow person.

For me, you would have to have done great things in your life for me to buy your autobiography.

I feel too many autobiographies are written today. It used to be - if an autobiography was written, it meant the person did something extraordinary which was worth knowing and reading about... Nowadays, autobiographies are written because the author has graduated high school.

What is extraordinary? Climbing a mountain? winning office? winning at sports? or being a great contributer to society?

I'm pretty interested in how many girls a fat old announcer banged.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not bashing the guy. I don't even know him. I just feel too many autobiographies are written for selfish reasons.

Extraordinary is doing things which no one has done or things which only a few have done.

I'll read the section on the "Buffer 360" and then put the book back on the shelf.

I can't wait to read something like this in the book-

" So I was in an elevator with three,four,maybe five ring girls,who keeps count?
When all the sudden in walks Frank Trigg with his 10 dollar smile. I proceeded to implement my kung fu skills against him before securing a headlock........He then lost to Matt Hughes."

He does the Buffer 180 and on a rare occassion the Buffer 360. That is extraordinary.

Besides, it cant be as bad as Matt Hughes' book.
