Rashad in Microsoft ad

So the Bill Gates t shirt at UFC 88 was a sponsor indeed. Interesting to see that Microsoft is getting involved in MMA sponsorship.

Here is the TechCrunch article about it:

Rashad did specifically say that it was just an in-joke in interviews after the fight. It's still possible that this was true, and the Gates shirt came to Microsoft's attention afterward, and they decided to jump on the convenient marketing situation in a demographic that might be difficult for a nerdy software company to penetrate... and dole out a relatively miniscule amount of their vast wealth to do so.

Much better commercial than the horribly unfunny Jerry Seinfeld/Bill Gates commercials they've been airing.

I can see a decent commercial: "Rashad Evans-crushing Salmon like Vista crashes your computer."

Or maybe Liddell can be a PC and Rashad's fist represents Vista.
