Mike Goldberg: Douchebag.
So tonight I met a guy who works with Goldberg on a daily basis. Awesome interesting things I learned tonight:
- Goldberg's UFC contract is for $1.5mil and has a time table of 2 years left. So we only have to listen to his bullshit for 2 more years. Yay? :(
- Goldberg is known as the industry "douche." But people hire him because he's "easy to work with." Also Goldberg is friends with the presiden to of Zuffa. Which is why they have that jackass working for them.
- Goldberg, during all of his tapings is always on his cell phone. Which is fine when they're prerecorded. But on something live like PPV UFC fights, where his stupid ass can't be saved by editing, he'll stop mid-sentence, like he does a lot on the PPV fights. According to my source, since the Iphone came out, Goldberg has become a lover of text messaging and will spend the entire fight messaging people. Which I guess kind of explains why his announcing of the fights suck so much.
So, two more years. :(
