The IFL is gone now, right? So why in he FUCK doesn’t the UFC hire Bas Rutten to commentate alongside Rogan? Bas knows fighting (obviously), he’s high-energy, he’s funny as shit, he’s entertaining, understands everything he’s talking about firsthand . . . WTF?? This is a no-brainer to me.
And if they still want to use Goldberg just for his voice to do some of the segue stuff as they’re going to a commercial or coming back from a commercial, or introducing a fight, because that’s what Rogan says he’s good for (“Aaaaand we’re BAAACK in Columbus, Ohio at UFC 97!!!”), then fine.
But get Bas in there next to Rogan and have those two do the fight commentating.
I think Hamill/Franklin is the most promising fight on the card. Should be a good one, but I have Hamill squeaking by with a split decision over Franklin.
I had a dream last night where I was replacing Mike Goldberg as commentator and during the Liddell/Evans fight Chuck kicked Evans in the head and knocked him out. So I’m going with Chuck.
I wish someone, ANYONE, would replace that stupid fucking idiot. [/quote]
