-'SNL' Gets a 'Ready to Rumble' Pass

The Buffer brothers didn't rumble with Saturday Night Live over use of their famous slogan. Michael and Bruce Buffer make a lot of money any time they or anyone else say "Let's Get Ready to Rumble." But TMZ says S-N-L got a freebie. U-F-C announcer Bruce Buffer was outside Gold's Gym in Venice, and told TMZ why "SNL's" Mayweather/Pacquiao skit -- which included Michael Buffer's "Let's get ready to rumble" -- isn't costing NBC a cent.
Normally, Bruce and Michael charge handsomely -- at least 5 figures -- for an individual or production to use the famous catchphrase.
Bit in this case -- Bruce gives Taran Killam's version a thumbs up, but warns that anyone else will have to pay.. a lot.
