You can't realy go wrong with a commentator that comes from the sport itself. It's about adding depth to the fight. I need someone that explains stuff so that I or at least someone new to mma can get some clarefication about what is going on. I dont need a guy 'yelling' the obvious and irritating me to the point where I puy on music so I can watch the fights in peace.
When it comes to refs. this is verry serious. Would you like to go into the ring knowing you might be coming out with braindamage because the ref might not be that good? Other than fighters, the second thing you need to make a bout happen is a ref. Want the fighters to come back and fight another time? Don't let them die, thus hire the best referee's possible. Why do you think dean and mirgliotta are on most of the ppv's.
