haha, i remember htis guy's nose was busted bad, and at the end of the round, they fixed it, and goldie said "just one jab and it'll open right back up"
he repeated this over 9000 times.
then when the jab opened it up, you didn't hear the end of it.
Does goldberg do anything but muay thai? why is he qualified to be a commentator...

I think Goldberg has a learning dissorder.

It sounds like some of you want to do this to Joe Rogan.
Do you see what I've done there? By saying "Some of you" it will still make sense when I change the avatar to something good, like humping or something. :icon_colo

I'm going to ignore the 8 other pages and say that I used to loathe rogan just because he screams like a banshee. I'd leave my buffalo wing eatery of choice bleeding out of my ears, off balance because my ear drums had been burst by the shrill, piercing voice of rogan screaming the same sentence over and over. I may be mistaken, but when Crocop got knocked out by Gonzaga my anvil crushed the hammer upon Mr. Rogan's incessant recitation of "LOOK AT HIS LEG, LOOK AT HIS LEG, OH GOD, LOOK AT HIS LEG!"
However, this past UFC I found myself too reflective, too calm. Instead of the inane babble screams of a drunk Joe Rogan, I had K-Flo. I don't like the silence, the quiet. It allows me to hear what the god forsaken idiots around me at Hooters are saying to their girlfriends as they cheer on their fighter of choice by the wrong name.

Don't forget the perennial roganism, "ON THE BUTTON!!" to describe any knock-out. What got me was the "rape choke" reference a few UFC's ago. You could almost hear Dana White scream from Rogan's earpeice, "What the ****, Joe?!?!?!"

I can't stand Rogan's voice and over-caffeinated style. Plus the fact that he talks about "going for a Kimura!" with mind-numbing frequency. I really enjoy Couture - his insights are usually right on target.

I don't understand why anyone would legitimately hate Joe Rogan. Yeah, he repeats similar phrases a lot, but so does every other commentator. I owe him for getting me interested in jiu jitsu. It really used to impress me how could predict what a fighter was about to do on the ground, and then they'd magically do it.
Now I understand what's going on w/o being told by Rogan, but I'm sure he's helping other people that are new to MMA.
OTOH, I hate Goldberg. Who made a rule that a good commentator always has to be paired w/ a shitty one? Why can't we just have Rogan and Bas (or whoever) together? It must be a law that for every ex-athlete who commentates, some random communications major has to sit next to them and make an ass of himself.
