I suspect that the pronunciation "youfo" was popularised by the TV series UFO in the early seventies:

Ah! That explains it.

History is the lies of the victors coupled with the delusions of the defeated. It is an imagined certainty created at the point where the imperfection of memory meets the inadequacy of documentation.

I always got annoyed when outside broadcasters commented on a certain Cubs player's name. They always fancied it up, and I just got so annoyed at that.

I always said Marmol

and they would pronounce it "Mar-mole".
