As for Rogan for the first couple of years I watched it without him, compared to when he started commentating I know a lot lot more now. He explains to new fans the ins and outs of what is going on.
Oh yea, Penn was pretty bad during the Castillo vs Hughes fight at UFC 40. I seem to remember Goldie asking Penn about being able to be on your back, and work while Hughes is dropping elbows. Penn's response? "I think you have to be a wrestler". His voice is also not cut out for commentating. Great fighter, bad commentator. Bonnar was ok, and I liked how he brought up the fact that Frank Shamrock was toying with Tito throughout their(Tito vs Frank) fight, and how Forrest fights better when he's cut.
Ken's really good when he sets his ego aside. He seemed to do really good during the Sylvia vs Ricco fight, and seemed to be a huge Ricco fan. I also liked Ken & Rogan trying to explain how Belfort would win against Couture at UFC 46.
Speaking of UFC 46, I really thought the main event was pure horseshit. Belfort was aiming for Couture's eye, and the fact that it wasn't ruled a NC was shitty as well. Good show, bad main event.
