Does anyone like Mike Schiavello?

Because I don't.

He's the worst announcer I've ever listened to, even worse than the Strikeforce ones. I honestly don't know how he got a this job because his voice seriously makes me consider muting my TV while watching events.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

I like Schiavello. Out of all of the mma broadcasters out there, this dude is far and away the biggest fan. I prefer to hear a real fan like Schiavello talk about mma, the dude is super passionate and is clearly loves his job. I cant listen to Strikeforce commentary. Frank Shamrock is a complete tool, Gus Johnson is moderately retarded.

He goes a little too pro wrestling at times but he's great.

He definitely keeps it interesting, but he gets a little old when overdoing some fights they show on Friday nights even when you know it's the network telling him to do it. But the DREAM and K-1 fights he calls he does a really good job, although he might get a 'tad' carried away if you've heard him call a Badr Hari fight.

Schiavello is easily the best commentator in MMA imo, how can anyone not like him? He knows his stuff more than anyone and his one liners are hilarious.

He's by far the funniest commentator in all of combat sports and I'm a big Joe Rogan fan. I have to download the K-1 and DREAM stuff because we don't get it here and I don't fast forward even one second. Usually you have Schiavello and one or two other guys like Trigg, King Mo or Kogan talking about the fights and odds and whatnot for about half an hour before the actual opening ceremony begins and I enjoy every second of it.
