Jeff Blatnick

Does anyone know what ever happened to Jeff Blatnick? He used to be the UFC top commentar from the very early days all the way into the UFC 30s and than he just kind of disappeared. He was very underated in my opion.

Blatnick did commentating for WEC in about 05. Blatnick is still Blatnick(Which rules). Really underrated commentator who did a great job explaining backstories, as well as giving the viewers some idea on how the fighters behave. His commentating during the Frank vs Tito fight was just incredible. Nowadays, he focuses on his motivational speaking tour.

During the much touted(And for good reason) Karo vs Shonie fight, you got to see Blatnick become a Karo fan. You know you're a tough fighter when Jeff Blatnick gives you his praise. Blatnick was a legit tough guy, who survived cancer. The guy rules.

I actually like Goldie. I can understand why people wouldn't care for him, but I think he compliments Rogan really well. Goldie will leave openings, and Joe will pick up on them. Goldie's voice is damn near flawless, and even though he doesn't know much, he's still good. Goldie & Blatnick worked really well together, and if you thrown in Rogan, then it'd be like my dream commentating team. Mir would have to fit in there as well.

I really have no clue why Blatnick left. I wish they brought him back, but I don't see that happening.

Bas ruled as commentator. He didn't even need to bring the content, because he's BAS RUTTEN~! Bas getting mad during Duarte vs Kerr, because it was so boring was hilarious. Bas normally doesn't get mad, but you can tell he was annoyed at Duarte's *ahem* lack of balls.
