It's just my opinion of course, but to me he seems like a non professional doing a job that requires a professional and everytime I have watched an interview conducted by him it reminds me of a school media studies class project at best.
I didnt hear any mumbling, I heard him loud and clear. He looked at the camera and he looked straight at Mike the entire time. He looked down at notes once during the entire interview, he didnt do it frequently.

His voice is quite monotone and he could express more emotion, but he's no where near as bad as you're making out and he asks some good questions.

He said no such thing and had quite a lot of respect for Henderson.

He said that hes 38 years old now, so he's probably going to start slowing down a bit. He said nothing about him being too old or that he was way past his prime.

My bad for the double.

He doesn't mumble to the extent you can't understand him no, yes he asks decent enough questions but are they written by him?

Even if they are he would be better to continue writing the questions and have someone with more presence infront of the camera actually conduct the interview.

In my opinion he is one of the worst interviewers I have ever seen and it very much looks like an amature production to me.

You can disagree by all means, I think he is terrible as I have said for reasons I have listed, but its really not at issue I care about to continue to debate over.

He doesn't mumble at all though, he speaks loud and clear, his voice is just monotone.

He probably writes notes down, but he absolutely did not look at them frequently like you said, he looked down and paused once the entire time.

I agree with you about him being quite emotionless and his monotone voice, but there was no mumbling or constantly looking down at notes or a lack of eye contact with Mike.

I was giving my impression of him based on several interviews I have seen.

I think he does mumble, yes I can understand him but he is hardly loud and clear for the duration of the interview (maybe it is easier for you, or should I say sounds more normal to you coming from Manchester yourself and hearing someone with a similar regional dialect to yourself)

This is not the first interview I have seen him look down at his notes in and a professional interviewer would either not need to do so or would do so in a fashion far less apparent.

I think he is a poor interviewer and he lacks an engaging personality which people in front of a camera generally require. Ok I understand he is merely the interviewer and the interviewee is the focus of the clip so they are the personalities that need to come across not his.

If however, you look at any professional sports interviewer and compare them to this guy I think you would probably agree he stands out as being an amateur, he always seems like any guy being given a set of questions to ask and filling in he doesn't seem like a professional sports interviewer to me.

Ok, fair enough, i've only seen a couple of interviews of him, but I didnt think he was THAT bad. He's no ariel helwani but i've seen worse.

I've not watched the interview, but i have an inkling that tkoshea may be a squeeky voiced southerner.

Still think that Bisping gets an overly tough time from the US fans.

Did you watch the Ultimate Fighter where he was one of the coaches? And where he was having his period throughout the whole show? I actually liked Bisping up until the show and he turned into a little bitch (maybe too much attention. He started thinking he was too good and getting arrogant.)

I look forward to every Bisping loss now ^_^

And no, nationality doesn't matter to me. I absolutely hate Tito, hate Rashad, don't like Rampage at all, etc etc etc.

Favorite fighters
1. Jens Pulver
2. Diego Sanchez
3. Chuck Liddell
4. Dan Henderson
5. Jason Von Flue
6. Chris Lytle

See this is what annoys me. Fair enough to dislike Bisping for giving some trash talk, but no-one ever talked about Hendo and he gave it out just as bad before the fight. His trash talk was probably worse than Bisping's. Hendo came across as a classless fool but he got no stick at all yet Bisping got slaughtered.
