Tried and failed to say a word 5 times. Can't remember exactly but it was so awkward. Problem is, he doesn't laugh at himself, looks like he takes it to heart.

I don't care that much who announces.

That said, I like Joe Rogan. And Anik is terrible and has no clue what he is talking about. Not that Goldy does either.

probably getting the brain turmor that causes him to stutter removed

That's kind of what I was thinking. Sad if that's the case though.

He gave Joe an awkward, "sh*t help me out" smile after that. Hilarious.

Bonnar and Mir done really good commentary in WEC, surprised they didn't get a call up as neither are fighting.

Don't really care who the play by play guys is, get "Good old JR" and have him yell 'sloberknocker' all night for all I care, I can see the 'play by play' for myself. I want a good colour guy to point out the 'finner points of the game' that I might be missing.

People will complain no matter who does it - even if they brought in Bas newer fans would be complaining because he has an accent.

I'll be looking forward to seing if Anik has chemistry with Rogan tonight and I'm just happy that we're seing something different.

And I hope that Goldie isn't having serious trouble, and hope everything works out alright for him.

Get hyped for the fights, not the people commentating on them

I really kind of surprised that as many people actually pay that much attention to the commentating, If I'm watching it I don't need a play by play, I already know whats going on, I guess I have gotten so used to watching on mute or very low volume that its not a issue with me. Maybe I will try this one listening to the commentators (if I can) , maybe I'm missing something.???
