HDnet commentators

I REALLY liked the announcers. The British/Australian guy was hilarious ("He's getting scored on more than my ex-girlfriend!") and really informative! I don't know too much about all of the rules and he and his fellow commentators were really helpful I thought. It was cool having Hoost there although I don't remember him talking to much. What did you guys think of them?

I like them too. Hoost said maybe like 3 sentences the whole time.

Schiavello is good but sometimes he just gets too excited and doesn't call what is actually happening. Like when Hari had Remy against the ropes and was trying to tee off but all he was doing was hitting Remy's gloves. Schiavello just starts yelling, he's in trouble, he's in trouble and Hoost steps in and was like, no he isn't. I've gotten used to it but sometimes it is a little annoying. But he is the "voice of K-1".

Hoost is always good but he needs some to ask him questions or his opinion because he is just more interested in watching the fight. But he does offer really good insight.

Kogan usually does a solid job.

Kimbo being there was just annoying. He had no idea what he was talking about and actually came across as dumber than I thought he was.

Word. It's not easy to talk consistently for 5 hours stright, but he did it, and did it well. Sefo was pretty funny too.

You could tell that Kimbo hadnt seen a K1 event ever. Just kept repeating himself.

Yup, he said it.
