I like his play by play too. Often through a fast exchange I've heard him say something like "Oh my! That left hand caught him..." or similar... and my first thought was "What left hand? It was his right that did the damage..." Then in the slo-mo, there's a left hand doing what Joe said. True, his view ringside is better than what's on TV, but with the fighters moving, turning, etc., he still seems to see everything. He knows what he's talking about and it's obvious he's still exicted to be around the action.

That said, I hate the post-fight interviews in the ring. Hate them. It's the wrong time to be talking to the loser... give them a chance to come to terms as to what happened. And to the winner it's too often "What did you expect?" or "How does it feel?" type questions. Let the winner savour the moment. Let them breath deep and hear the audience and hear their own heart. Ask your questions later... we can wait for the answers.

Joe is the man!!! It's just not the same without Joe in it, his enthusiasm is fantastic! A UFC event is not complete without Joe saying 'Oh he is rocked'!!!!

Arlovski beats Werdum by unanimous decision

Really!? I think Joe Rogan is a great commentator. He is one of the reasons I like watching the UFC PPV - He knows his stuff, he is energetic and funny at times. He is a great addition

Yea, Rogan comes off like a huge MMA fanboy(Mainly because he is one). I'd rather hear enthusiasm over boredom.

I never said that it wasnt true... you are correct, what Joe was saying in regard to Hughes was indeed true.

My only complaint was that it wasnt a commentary on what was going on "during" the match... thats all.

If Hughes picked him up and power slammed him... fine, obviously that warrants him going on and on about him...

But going on and on as he did for that one bout was not called for...

And I DO like Rogans comments MOST of the time... just this once it bugged me.

BTW, I dont hate Matt... thats not why i posted... I was trying to stay on topic about Joe... please, I dont mean to come off bad here... my bad, my miscommunication.

I personally love Joe. I guess I can see how some people might find his voice annoying but I just find it exciting. He is very good at explaining things going on in the fight as well.

Joe Rogan is a self-admitted fan-boy, and he's not ashamed of it. It really shines through in his commentary, because he REALLY hypes the guys he likes. For example, Georges St. Pierre was kicking Jason "Mayhem" Miller's ass all over the octagon, and that didn't stop Rogan from praising Mayhem up and down for being such a great fighter, which he really is.

Mike Goldberg is a classic voice, i like him. But with his experience u'd think he'd learn a thing or 2 about mma.

Joe Rogan is hilarious. "you can count the amount of punches sylvia landed on ur fringers", "a 43 yr old man isn't supposed to dominate his sport"
