Anik sounded like everything he said was straight of a script. He didnt seem to offer up anything on the fly like Goldie sometimes does.

He has the personality of a potato.

TBH I didn't mind the Rogan/Anik combo -- was a lot better than I had predicted.

However, nothing is better than Rogan/Goldberg. I don't care what anyone says, those two are a commentary match made in heaven.

Anybody else notice Anik was always chuckling. I can't believe I'm saying it, but I missed hearing Goldie's mundane lines.

Anik's not bad though. Much better than Mauro. Kenflo is probably the second best commentator. Extremely knowledgeable as he's a former fighter. His commentating on Anderson Silva was second to none in Brazil I think with Yushin when Rogan couldn't make it.

I miss Goldie. His enthusiasm is infectious. Also, he always produces a couple of hilarious moments with Rogan. Anik was decent but I still prefer Goldie.

Anik did a fine job it just seems off because him and Joe don't have hundreds of cards together so they don't have the chemistry that Joe and Goldie have.

It looks like Goldberg is taking an indefinite time off.

Ive always believed that Goldberg could possibly be a drug user, and that he might have a problem. And the UFC/Dana could no longer take how far it got. I could be totally off base with this, but something just seemed off with Goldie. Wish him the best, and hope he returns soon.

Jon Anik is a good guy to match up with Kenflo. They are decent B team commentators and Joe and Mike are A team. I don't get why there would be any complaints about last night.

Wonder if he does rails. He seems bug eyed sometimes, but it's not too noticeable. Who knows...

As long as Mauro doesn't commentate.
