I'm a fan of Joe Rogan, and Mike Goldberg's a solid announcer, but sometimes I would prefer the option of a second audio stream that didn't have their commentary.

Totally unsubstantiated rumor floating around my gym is that Forrest had his jaw dislocated and an ruptured ear drum. Of course then I bothered to google it this morning.
Reports circulated last night and this morning that Forrest Griffin’s decision to leave the Octagon and the arena were due to a possible broken/dislocated jaw and hearing loss. The reports, which were started on a popular MMA message board and circulated widely by the Telegraph, stated that Griffin left in order to seek immediate medical care.
Inside Fights has confirmed with sources close to Griffin’s camp that he did not leave the cage due to injury. While we don’t know why he abruptly left the cage (other than being upset and emotional after his loss), we can confirm that the injury reports are not true.
Maybe he just freaks out when he loses that quickly? He ran out of the ring full tilt when Jardine KO'd him.

FWIW, in the UK we used to have 2 major commentators for Boxing. The Great Reg Gutteridge (ITV) and Harry Carpenter (BBC). Eventually I had to turn down the sound on Harry...Mr Rogan may well be going the same way.
