UFC 257 announcer Bruce Buffer branded 'fashion icon' as fans rave about amazing lilac floral suit jacket

UFC announcer Bruce Buffer was hailed as a 'fashion icon' after sporting a stunning lilac jacket for his latest masterclass in presenting.

The 63-year-old was on hosting duties at UFC 257 and stole the show in the prelims thanks to his eye-catching floral number.

Fans waiting for the main event of Conor Mcgregor vs Dustin Poirier picked out the Veteran Voice of the Octagon as the early headliner.

NerdyScienceGrl wrote: "I'm excited about the McGregor vs. Poirier fight tonight, but I get more excited about seeing Bruce Buffer’s suits."

Kristijanku added: "When hasn't @brucebuffer looked sharp, the dude is a fashion icon."

Buffer is famed for his outfits – and there is even a Twitter account called Bruce Buffer's Purple Jacket.

And it predictably joined in the fun as the man himself did the honours on Fight Island.

It wrote: "The purple jacket prince lighting up the city of luxury in a Lawless Lilac. Solid trim & bow tie leaving you lusting for a silky left hip turn into a loud, thunderous roar."

And UFC chiefs weren't to be left out, adding: "A historic night requires a historic fit. Bruce Buffer looking as impeccable as ever."

Buffer had teased fans from his dressing room before the event began with a preview of his 'It's time' catchphrase – and revealed he gets in the mood by listening to AC/DC's Thunderstruck before hitting the octagon.

The American icon is the half-brother of fellow sports-announcing legend Michael Buffer.

The pair are business partners with an estimated combined personal net worth of £312million – Michael £305m and Bruce £7m.

But amazingly they didn't meet until the late 1980s after Bruce saw his more famous sibling on TV and asked his father if they were related.
