best/worst ring announcer?

Who do you all think is the best/worst "lets get ready to rumble" announcer in mma/boxing/any ring sport?

I've caught a few mma fights on cable and i wish i could remember the guys name but it was just plain awful. He sounded like a last minute replacement announcer who must've smoked 2 packs of cigarettes prior to gettin' to the ring. Then of course there are the bruce buffer type announcers who do a great job too.


ps...go easy on me, this is my first actual real topic thread aside from introduction. woo!

You are probably talking about the guy who announced the fights at the recent Yamma event. That was bad, just really bad. Even ignoring his voice the crap he came out with. . . the ref was even looking dissapointed.

I liked the small japanese guy who announced what I guess could have been seen as the pre-lims on some of the Pride cards. He was awesome, put his whole being into the announcing, like his life depended on it. Best part was he was so small and didn't move a muscle while doing it.

As already mentioned, Lenne Hardt (AKA The Crazy Pride Lady) is easily the best ring announcer ever!

Mauricio "Shogun" Rua!

Scott Ferral (spelling) from YAMMA was even worse than Rich "Go Go" Goins!

Scott Ferrall is easily the worst! Anybody who thinks otherwise has yet to experiance the horror....

My Favorite is Bruce Buffer! Not to big on Lynn Hardt!

I actually disagree with you guys on the Pride lady. She is annoying as hell. Bruce Buffer is by far the best announcer.

I got to give the nod to Michael Buffer, when anyone hears his voice they automatically associate it with fighting.
