Have you purchased Xience?

Xience has spent a ton of money to sponsor mma through the UFC, Chuck Liddell and Spike TV.

Their goal is to reach the 18-35 year old male audience and create new consumers of their product.

Has it worked--have you bought their products or would you do so in the future?

This might seem a strange question for the mma forum but I think its valid as Xience has had a direct financial impact on mma in the U.S. and could do so again if they decide mma isn't helping their sales and they withdraw sponsorship money.

Its just another "Ico-Pro"...its no more special than any other supplement. So in short,hell no.

I take a multi-vitamen but thats about it. Supplements have no appeal to me.

I voted yes, because I know that option is going to get very lonely once every single person on this board votes no. But no, I've never bought it or any other supplement except for generic grocery store multivitamins.

Seriously, I bet that for every one UFC viewer who purchases Xience, there are at least 20 who think the way the UFC pushes that crap is ri-damn-diculous. On this board, Xience isn't a supplement, it's a punchline.

Thats what I was interested in finding out. I suspect there might be a backlash against the product, at least among hard core net fans and thats the exact opposite of what a product wants to happen. And if it turns out that many here use the product, that means the UFC has been a successful platform for Xience. I'm just curious to see how it turns out.

On a slightly related note, I really wish the UFC wouldn't allow any advertising on the Octagon mat or the pads--I wish the fight platforms could be kept "pure" from advertising.

Sometime advertising can backfire. I refuse to buy the product because of their advertising on TUF. It's on my what not to buy list.
