Hm, I liked Bonnar's. But I'd have to agree with you, I prefer Mir's a little more. But both guys do decent, there's plenty of fighters that make terrible commentators. Pulver stumbles around a lot with his speech, and isn't a very commercial guy in general. I like Kenny Florian's commentating a lot. Mir's is right up there. I think while we're on this 'how did we like Bonnar's?' It'd be interesting to hear who some people would have preferred. I wouldn't mind hearing either Kenny or Couture.

Bonnar was much, much better than Mir's monologues. Keep him.

Mir's a good commentator, but I thought Bonner did a fine job.

I liked Bonnar's commentary a lot better than Mir's. It's nice to have a commentator who doesn't have multiple orgasms whenever there's a submission attempt (following a 2 minute monologue of explaining why that submission attempt should score points but in the end admitting that the other guy won the round). His commentary was very fair and impartial.

Mir and Bonnar both have their issues. If were gonna have psycho commentators then why not give Junie a go?
