I think you guys are being a bit hard a Rogan, he definitely adds excitement to the fights and I missed his commentary on Saturday night. Why not keep all three, Goldberg to give all the information and other facts about the fighters, Randy to give his proffessional insights on the fights and Rogan to add to excitement of the fights. why not?

Rogan's grown on me. He still has his moments where I just think "What is he talking about?". The constant "Whoa, he got him......wait, he's out" comments make my head hurt.

Still, he atleast tries to explain what's going on. Goldberg is such a worthless shill, that he makes Joe Rogan look a lot better than he is.

Quadros is also a guy I find to be a little overrated. Sometimes, his fanboyism can really bring down a fight. His constant odd love for Akira Shoji for one, and him practically sucking off Rickson Gracie is another.

I'll have to agree... Rogan is hard to listen to. Hopefully they will realize now that some of the more popular fighters are retiring and they can get people who have actually been in the octagon to comment on what is happening. I just hope it doesn't take as long as it did for football.

No Joe Rogan = Great Commentating

...What? Joe Rogan was really cool...and funny at times. Ex. UFC 62 when Liddell caught Babalu with that big uppercut...Rogan goes "Bing" during the replay...lol that was funny. Rogan brings excitment to it. I think Mike, Randy & Joe make a great announcement team. Besides...If the Hollywood showdown between Rogan & Snipes happens...lol I pick Rogan for the Submission win. ( Joe knows A LOT more than people think).

P.S. I know he's training somewhere...

I think Rogan is good, and I personally think he's there to bring UFC to a lot of people who know nothing about MMA.

I'm really new to MMA and a lot of what he tells you about what's going on, and what the fighters are trying to do, especially on the ground, is really helpful in letting a noob like me understand exactly what is going on.
Most people just think ground game is boring but when he explains things from the fighter's point of view you actually get to see how hard they are working and how technical it can be.

I know I'm just a noob but I think Rogan is cool and pretty funny. I've heard him on a few radio shows too and he seems like he just really loves MMA.

Rogan gets on my nerves from time to time, but he does seem to understand exactly what each fighter is trying to do offensively and defensively. I do agree that Randy Couture is a natural at commenting though. Having three commentators sounds expensive.

I like Joe Rogan. It's nice to see someone who really loves the sport to commentate it. Don't be too hard on Joe. He's a cool cat, and he loves MMA so much. There's almost ALWAYS some commentator somewhere who gets on your nerves. I bought some King of the Cage DVD's and the commentary on those is horrible. The guys are great fighters but they're just not as exciting. You want excitement in the commentator's voice instead of hearing mundane commentary. The announcers make the fight exciting for the fans.
I like Joe, and I know not everybody likes everybody, but at least he tries to bring excitement to the vocals.

I have 2 words for the people who think Rogan is a bad commentator: Frank Trigg.

Yeah Trigg and his comments on how he thinks a certain fighter used to be good. He should talk
