Miletich is knowledgeable on fighting techniques but he's not that good of a commentator. You need to have the perfect balance or at least 70% commentator and 30% MMA knowledge.

Mauro is annoying but the whole staff is growing on me including Gus.

Gus is just there inoffensive for the most part, mauRo while an irritant has a purpose and knows MMA.Its frank shamrock that they can do without he adds nothin to the broadcast and its sort of painful hearing him commentate diaz, lee's, and shield (when he was there) matches cuz you can hear the bitterness in his voice..

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering

MMA fans think that the reason Gus isn't that good is that he isn't as knowledgeable. However, he is just a bad announcer. Listen to him call a basketball game; he's terrible.

they suck.... Bas and Kenny Rice i thought were a great combo, Guy Metzger is pretty good to, Micheal Schiavello.... while im not a fan... he has grown on me.... Frank Trigg is accually pretty good too!


Mauro is annoying and his 1 liners suck..... Frank i think has money invested in SF so he spends much of his time hyping the company, and thats about it for him.... Stephen Quadros is pretty decent... he has an undestanding of the sport and explains things pretty well....

Mauro Ranello or whatever his name is and Frank Shamrock need to be banned from ever holding a mic for life.

All I hear is screaching stupid, ignorant, blanket statements that hurts my ears and offends my mind. Listening to Frank Shamrock wailing is about as painful as listening to nails beeing dragged across a black board.


The other guys in Strikeforce are ok, even Gus. Miletich is by far their best guy.

They suck really hard. Mauro is an idiot half the time and just has a really annoying voice and commentating style. Everything to him is just stupid epic it seems. Shamrock is HELLA biased and shows it quite often. Chivello I've never been a fan of. His constant fast talking and screaming of stuff like "ITS GOODNIGHT IRENE!!!" is annoying, more so than Goldie's "ITS ALLLLLL OVER!" thing. Schivello just reminds me of someone who doesn't know much about the sport so he's just loud and obnoxious to cover for it (Yes, I know he's knowledgeable). Militech is good, but his voice is very monotonous. Bas was easily the best announcer I've ever heard. His work with Quadros is amazing. Trigg is also a pretty damn good commentator. I think Rogan is by and large the best due to his experience with the sport, his knowledge of both th efighters and their arts and his experience with stand-up and being able to competently commentate on fights.

Agree 100%, they are awful. Any sports announcers have to use more hyperbole than any normal person would, thats part of the business, but you can still go overboard, and lots do, like these guys. Frank Shamrock makes my ears bleed, and the other guy, I don't even know his name, but he can't even put together a grammatically correct sentence. 'The mysteriously enigmatic Fedor'.....wtf dude, pick up a dictionary sometime, jesus.
