DONT FORGET ABOUT THE FOOT STOMPS!!!
In Serra's defense, I'd have to say he's probably one of the best cornermen you could ask for. Screw the viewer, the cornerman is for the fighter, and you can't ask for much more than Serra. He obviously has his favorite little cues as you've already mentioned, but the guy is very effective. You definitely wouldn't have a hard time hearing him. He is a hell of a trainer, and his guys listen to him. Anyway, in response to the op, Rampage is the complete opposite of a cornerman like Serra. Rampage is more about being funny, thereby pleasing the audience, but he's relatively worthless to the fighter he's cornering. He'll keep me laughing through a whole fight, but that's not what he's supposed to be there for.
I have to add that I am a big fan of Serra's tendency to remind his fighter to breathe. I've caught myself not breathing before, and that's just not effective during a fight. It's nice to have that reminder.

Cameron Diffley. I think he just got his BB in BJJ. He's like a more tolerable Serra.
