I don't think its too hard nor is it too much to ask for a commentator to know what he's talking about. Bas and Maruo both know what they are talking about and they never really have any conflicting statements over one another, its called an opinion. Different opinions are always great so long as you know what you're talking about as long as you're not pulling stuff outta your ass. Goldberg does just that. I find it hard to believe that in a country with over 200 million people, you can't find someone who has good vocal skills and knows what he's talking about.

I wouldn't mind so much that he didn't know what he was talking about if it weren't for the fact that he's trying to make these comments that are just so stupid, its unbelievable. "uh....no, not michael jordon? tim hardaway? vince carter? your mother?" You'd think after all this time the guy would finally pick up some knowledge from all those fights or at least do some homework watching videos at home, but still everyday the guy goes to work just winging the material, hoping that he'll get away with it again.
They should bring back Jeff Blatnick. Seriously, Blatnick was really good, and he added so much to the Frank vs Tito fight. The thing I dug about Blatnick, was that he gave a backstory to the fights, and tried his hardest to explain to the fans what was going on in the Octagon. He didn't have the knowledge of Quadros, but he executed what he knew better than him. Blatnick was also a legit tough guy, so if you get Jeff Blatnick's approval, then you know you're a tough fighter.

Blatnick marking out like crazy over Karo(During the Karo vs Shonie fight) was really awesome. Bas, Blatnick, & Rogan is my dream commentating team.

Frank Mir is also an underrated commentator. It's too bad he doesn't get much booth time.

Mike Goldberg needs to be there. He's the man to hype all of the PPV's, tell the backstory and do the play-by-play. He's very good at what he does, although he's no good at explaining transitions without Rogan or Couture there to guide him along. He's good at feeding off of Joe and Randy, and I'm sure he'll approve. I don't see him going anywhere.

A Frank Mir, Joe Rogan, and Mike Goldberg team would be fine by me. Mir's not so bad, he gets a little confused from time to time, but he's quick with his corrections.
