Also, I saw a 22 minute interview with Dana (I believe it was posted on this forum as well) where he also made mention of this.

Personally I don't recall seeing a UFC event without Bruce before, anyone know if this has happened in the past?

Oh absolutely, I meant more specifically when Zuffa took over. Or more so, when it actually became more of a sport then the slugfests of yesteryear

Two shows on opposite sides of the world on back to back days is probably too much of a burden on him. The travel has to be rough.

I wonder if Goldie and Rogan will be there in person, if they'll do commentary off site, or if they'll use the Fuel commentators.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.

I think it's nice some other announcer gets a chance.

Personally I think Buffer is a bit annoying as an announcer and full of himself as a person, so an alternate here and there is good news IMO.

What other show is he doing?

This will be strange and unusual. Do not like.
