I know, it's wild. You'd figure a play by play guy could make that move across most sports. There was no excuse for Showtime keeping him on and making him do post fight interviews where he was such a fish out of water.

Because he got into the business because of his passion for Football and Basketball, then he received MMA as an "assignment", and it's not his main focus. There are plenty of good commentators, TBH I like Goldberg these days, he's such a friendly guy, he always means well. I get the feeling he takes a lot of things to heart and has a low self esteem because of it. Anyway, WAR GOLDBERG, I hope he isn't unwell.

I like Anik and Rogan so far. Anik's not quite as OTT as Goldberg, and, seeing him on MMA Live in the past, actually seems to know his stuff, unlike Goldie who, at times seems to be reading from a script constantly.

I think he knows a bit more (or can at least act like he does), I just hate his voice and disposition. He's so flat.

Anik's fake laugh is really beginning to get on my tits.

I love goldie, always have. Anik is good too, but goldie is goldie.
I like how the pairs were, anik and florian work well together and rogan and goldie have been the UFC commentators for such a long time now, I wouldn't have it any other way.

I also liked it.
Imo took the commentating to a new level, will be hard to receive Goldie back now that the bar has been raised behind a level he can't keep with.
