Goldberg/Rogan not calling rounds

I am a Goldberg/Rogan fan.

In fact I am a big fan.They have been the voice of the UFC for the 5 years and I have been glued.
I also must admit originaly Goldberg sounded a bit clueless but now is very informative,Rogan, well he taught me all the moves .Originaly I just wanted to see Chuck go in and knock someone out.Now I love the ground game as much as the standup.

BUT

Why do they never call the rounds. Yes some times they do but very very very rarely.
Now is it an American thing? (please tell)

I'm from sunny Scotland and boxing is what we grew up with on TV and the comentators always call each round(they still do). All the big US boxing fights we had our own (well Engish not Scottish but u get my point) commentators but every time the round ended they called it.

Why don't the UFC ?

Imo it's something to do with being impartial.

I don't think it looks good for the commentators to express those kind of opinions, because they can affect the viewers pov and experience.


p.s. There's sun in Scotland?

They used to when they had Eddie Bravo un-officially scoring the rounds, which is similar to what they do in boxing. In boxing they usually have someone like Teddy Atlas alongside them, and i think they all have a go at filling in an un-official scorecard. With so much action going on in MMA its prolly too difficult for the commentators to do this. All they can really do is give their opinion on how the round went.

I dunno really though, thinking about it i'm not sure why they dont. As long as they dont do what Mauro Ranallo does and give fight stats after every fcuking round i'm happy with how they do their job.

Yeah I hear what you say but I think that is also my point. They are there to comentate and if they say who is winning the round then are they not doing their job.Yes they are paid by the UFC and there is no way I would ever want those two replaced.But would definatly add to the experience if they expressed their opinion. After all they are (and yes now they are)the experts


ps You shine on little old Scotland(who needs sun)

Give their opinion is all I want.They spend all round giving exact very god opinion.So surely they can call the round.WE all do at home.
Basicaly thay must have been told by Dana not to comment.
My question is
Why?

With all the crazy decisions in MMA I think they are honestly a little afraid to look stupid on TV by "mis-predicting" scorecards.

They always score the rounds here in BR during the events and i don't have any problem with that, but I don't think that Goldberg/Rogan should be doing that since they are UFC employees and represent them.

they actually score the rounds a little too much IMO, they usually say that this guy is losing and needs to do something big to win, which then if the judges score for that guy it makes everything look bad.

which is not really rogans fault but ehh....

Because its embarrassing and creates confusion for the fans when the commentators disagree with the judges, especially pre-emptively, where the fans are led to expect an outcome and hear another. Even today when they do it, it already creates controversy on a regular basis.

I'm not saying the judges are always right but from a business perspective i doubt dana wants to de-legitimize the commissions and judges more than he has to, and that translates down the ranks. If the judging standards ever get locked down to a degree like boxing where decisions aren't as hard to make, it'd be sensible to do. But MMA's scoring is still so vague and subjective.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?
