    I could see Rogan saying "peace out" even before they make the decision. Shitty of them, IMO.

    We don't want NFL commentators. I'll take Goldberg over an Anik or Florian any day of the week. I'll take Anik and Florian over sports announcers any day of the week.

    Bad move if they do that.

    Remember Gus Johnson?

    Brawls happen in MMA when there is a lot of testosterone in the cage... Damn you, Gus

    I like Stann so I hope he gets the job if it's true.

    I enjoyed Stann and Annik last night. I also like Ken Flo. Bas would be bad ass. I like Dan Hardy on the brit/aussie cards.

    I enjoyed Woodley and KFlo doing the post game. Bisping, Cruz, and DC do an awesome job at breaking shit down.

    I don't dislike Maurlo, but I also don't enjoy his style of commentating. I like when fighters or martial artists commentate. I like Joe Rogan cause he is a fan and a martial artist. I'm fine with getting rid of Goldberg.

    Stann is the worst. He's so dry and boring.

    Kenflo, hardy, Cruz are much better.

    I've never been a big fan of either Goldberg or Rogan so I'm ok with whatever changes come here. There certainly has to better options out there

    I think the wheels are going to fall off before the tv rights deal expires. The UFC had a record year in 2015 solely because of McGregor and Rousey lighting up the PPV numbers leading to the UFC being sold for all that money. Then Rousey got headkicked into oblivion and left McGregor to carry it on his own for the most part.

    And of course McGregor did set precedents for PPV numbers and fought every 3-4 months. However, McGregor is taking 6 months off and I predict Nunes retires Rousey leaving only McGregor as a guaranteed PPV draw for them. He can't continue a 3-4 fights per year pace. They're already cutting costs all over the place, firing people that made the sport as popular as it is. I was all for getting DW and the Fertitas out of the UFC but this is the exact opposite of what I expected. It's pretty fucked up, this hostile takeover.

    Bas and Stann would be my go to guys.

    I fucking hate Mauro man. His voice just sounds too fucking manufactured. I wouldn't mind him so much if he just toned down his "I'm an announcer so I'm going to use my announcer voice to make sure you know that I'm announcing things"
