Apparently, Limp Bizkit is no longer performing at UFC 100. I WONDER WHY? Perhaps people didn’t want to see Fred shuffle around stage like the fatass washed-up loser that he is. Perhaps ticket sales were going DOWN instead of UP once Limp Bizkit was announced as performing (we’d love to find out). Perhaps Dana White came to his senses. Maybe it’s all of the above?
Or we could go with the easiest option and listen to Durstyboy himself…

Facts- Limp Bizkit did NOT, in any way, cancel the UFC100 concert in Las Vegas. Truth is UFC and Interscope records could not come to an agreement on certain DVD rights. With all respect to Mandalay Bay, The UFC were also unhappy with LB’s decision of wanting to switch the performance from the Beach at Mandalay Bay with its inappropriate layout for a heavy rock concert with Limp Bizkit, basically a stage in front of a pool, to a more standard concert venue also located at the mandalay Bay which was the House Of Blues. The UFC expressed they wanted a “party vibe” for this event and would not settle for any venue besides the Beach for this and other reasons. First, LB would like to confirm we are HUGE UFC fans and will always be, but feel it is unfair for UFC to falsely confirm and advertise that Limp Bizkit will be performing to only change their minds after many people have rearranged their lives and bought tickets to be in Vegas for this special concert. On that note we are proud to announce that we will still be performing on the same night out of respect for our fans. The details of when and where will follow shortly after this post. Again, all respect to UFC for inviting us in the first place. We will continue to support the UFC because it is our favorite MMA event. Stay tuned.
So, what you’re saying is…
– UFC offered you a place to perform and you jumped at the chance, because it’s violent and aggressive and you (despite claiming the contrary) & your fans love that… and you’re desperate for attention.
– Upon working out the details, UFC stated that it would be better for their broadcast and the taping of the performance if you performed at a specific venue.
– Rather than concede to this, you threw a tantrum and demanded a change of venues, even though the venue you’re demanding to use is already contracted to a show that night with other performers that has nothing to do with the UFC event.
– You probably want more money than you’re worth, since that’s usually what is involved when any sort of publishing “rights” disagreement occurs.
– UFC said thanks, but no thanks.
Well, Fred, if you wanted to play a “rock show” at a “rock venue” then you should have booked a concert yourself in the first place and not agreed to play at a televised sporting event that is based around the SPORT and NOT YOUR BAND. Way to go, Diva Durst.
