Rogan's a fan like all of us. He overdid it at times but he was just excited and surprised by Vera's performance I think.

You don't tend to see such biased commentary in other sports, and for good reason.

If you don't care, steer clear of this thread. Simple concept, really
So who else would you rather have commentating?

There are a number of individuals just as qualified as Joe, if not more so. Randy Couture. Chael Sonnen. Bas Rutten. Frank Mir. I could compile a list of fighters/ex-fighters who are just as passionate about the sport and can refrain from referring to every punch their preferred fighter lands as a 'knockout blow'.

Never really cared, didn't tonight either, he's just like anyone else, we all get too amped at times and say stupid things. Though it was starting to wear thin every single time Vera landed that Shogun was rocked. But Rogan probably never in a million years expected Vera to anything but wilt and cower when he got hit.

i don't think that Joe was so bad tonight, considering that Shogun was having problems finishing Vera. The dude isn't even a top ten fighter. fight metric has them basically even in significant strikes.

other sports are almost as bad. the Olympic coverage is horribly one sided for example.most major sports have commentators for each team, and it is clear they are cheering for the home team. quick google search has no trouble finding lists of the most biased announcers ever.

Gonna have to disagree. The only person that could maybe hold my attention as well as Rogan is Bonnar.

Everyone else puts me to sleep, other than Bas. But Bas is more of a comedian/color commentator. He could never be the main commentator.

I think Frank Mir is the best. What really bothers me about Rogan more so than his bias is his obsession with pointing out how good and underrated every fighter is at BJJ and then freaking out about how a fighter has a submission locked up when it's not even close.

He was aweful in the Del Rosario/Miocic fight too.

Stipe closes the distance and lands an uppercut

Joe:Miocic is having trouble closing the distance.

Lol what? So your solution is to retire two active fighters and throw them into the commentating booth?

Hm.

Interesting.

And I could list a bunch of things that Rogan did wrong tonight/in general. However referring to every blow as a 'knockout blow', to who you think are Joes 'preffered fighters', is certainly not one of them. I can't even recall the term of speech 'knockout blow' leaving Rogans mouth. It's usually a 'BA-BLAM' or 'BA-BOOSH', specifially during the slo-mo replays post-fight.
