Rashad Evans in Microsoft 'I'm a PC' Ad Shows How Far UFC Has Come

At the 26-second mark of this Microsoft commercial, UFC No. 1 light heavyweight contender Rashad Evans makes an appearance:

The ad shows Evans on the canvas, looking into the camera and yelling, "You got a problem with that?" What's noteworthy about it, to me, is that a company as mainstream as Microsoft would feature a UFC fighter in its commercials. It wasn't that long ago that UFC was far too marginalized for any big company to want to be associated with it. Now it's the people who don't recognize mixed martial arts as a legitimate sport who are marginalized.
