New Official Promotional Poster For UFC 112-- Love It!

Hot on the heels of the UFC's announcement that Demian Maia (12-1, 8 Subs) would step up on short-notice to face Anderson Silva (25-4, 15 (T)KO's) for the middleweight title at UFC 112, they have released this truly genius bit of marketing material.

Note the 1960's aesthetics that, despite predating the sport of MMA by decades, instantly informs viewers that they're in for an old-school clash of styles. Meanwhile, "The War In Arabia" brings to mind classic boxing matches like the "Rumble In The Jungle." I know I'm gushing right now, but can somebody please explain to me why this poster is not awesome.
