What's up with the scripted intros?

Is it just me, or did the fighters sound way more intense and sincere during the intros at one time?

For the past few UFC's I've noticed it sounds like they're reading from a script someone else wrote for them.

Sounds cheesy as hell.

I remember hearing an interview where someone said they basically keep asking you questions until they get the quotes they want, so they're probably just bored as fuck.
