The amount of bitching on forums would hit an all time high with a Goldie, Mauro, and Gus Johnson called card, between 'MAMA MIA' and 'IT IS ALL OVER' and anything that comes from Gus Johnson people would be irate beyond belief.

Those socks, good lawd.

Couture is one of the best commentators out there. H'andy Couture and the Bellator team are my personal favourites.

Rogan screaming down the mic gets quite irritating at times. Like one of those xbox live kids yelling down your ear, some times you just gotta mute.

There was a hilarious youtube highlight reel that's gone but yeah he said "That was like prison sex: hard, sweaty, violent and there was a lot of noise." HAHA!

And his description of Jardines style - "He's so awkward. He's like a rabid octopus. He looks like he's about to fall over at any time."

Genius, as to this discussion - I don't like Anik or Ken Flo

The mere fact he was a fighter makes Kenflo better than Rogan and Goldy. He has said some dumb things, but on the whole he just commentates the actual fight as it is actually happening while giving insight as to what the fighters are trying to achieve and why.

In such a dynamic and complex sport which is yet to be globally accepted, this is exactly the type of commentary we need and personally I think only ex-fighters should commentate. There are several available now the sport has been around a while, their insight fascinating and educational and, most importantly, accurate.

With every UFC event I find Rogan and Goldy more bland and not improving technically, they are the voices of the UFC but I wouldn't think twice about replacing them with fighters. Go Kenflo.

So by that same logic is Ricardo Almedia the best judge ever?

Those are to entirely different things. The worst part about fighters being judges is that they will be biased towards whatever their discipline was. That isn't so much a problem when it comes to commentating as it would be for scoring fights.

I enjoyed Couture's commentary and love Bas's commentary. Annik and KenFlo are the B team for the UFC at the moment and I'm sure they could both be easily replaced.

I enjoy Goldie and Rogan. Goldie is a dork but that's half the fun of listening to him and Joe do the commentary as it adds another element to the experience and doesn't take away from it. I agree that sometimes Joe sucks on a guys nuts a little too hard but it really doesn't bother me that much.

I would like to see them add a third to the team permanently and that guy should be Bas in my opinion. He'd be a great personality to add into the shuffle with those two.
