fuck your formatting, just read it.
As much as I disliked goldie, I'm liking him alot more now, especially after seeing the last 2 affliction events.
i've been on the go0ldie bandwagon for the past 6 months or so. The only possible better announcing team would be Phil Baroni and Nick Diaz.
both Frank and Ken Shamrock are (usually) pretty good commentators
Trigg was improving a lot until, um, i forget what happened
I fucking hate Trigg announcing, he was almost as bad as Tito when he did pride.
I could imagine nick diaz announcing a match
he wasn't great, but he made significant improvement during his tenure
Bas set the bar really high
Nick Diaz + Karo Parisyan
F-bombs and bro-bombs
I guess your right, but I really didn't like Triggs inputs. I can't remember the fight now, but I do remember one guy had the other in full mount and Trigg was saying that the guy on the bottom was just about to do something and sub or sweep the other guy. Kept saying like here it comes, then the guy on top like armbars the other guy or maybe it was a triangle and Trigg was fucking clueless on how that happened. I was like a month into formal BJJ training at that point and I had more knowledge on what was happening than that faggot. I guess I'm just jealous
at least he's not Bill Goldberg
"now he's going to throw a high right kick. why? because i just think so."
I totally forgot about that guy. Put those two together and you're asking for a failboat.
I know you can usually read fighters that use the same strikes/combos that they know well. You can read their movement's or things they do before they throw something and their timing, but to just say that because you believe it makes me .
rogan was always smart about it. i remember him commenting about some fighter setting up a spinning backfist because of the way he was putting weight on his back foot
Bas and that boxing announcer guy do an awesome job of HDNET.
I honestly don't know why people dislike him. I think he is someone who is able to explain what is going on better than anyone else. I think there are a lot of great commentators out there, but I just believe Rogan tells it how it is instead of trying to make it more complex. I remember that fight, the guy ended up doing it about 3 seconds after Rogan said that too .
I like the way he explains what is going on in the ground, it's too bad the live audience couldn't hear him because maybe they'd stop booing if they actually understood it. Buddy at work came up protesting the upcoming fight because he didn't want to see 2 men "making love" out there. I told him he has no idea what he's missing and how wrong he is, but whatever. I hate faggots like him
and...it's aallllllllllllllllll over!
Bas Rutten is my fav commentator of all time, but most people don't appreciate Goldberg for how much of a good commentator he is.
Although there is no excuse for after Wandy KOd Jardine when Goldie said 'THE ICE MAN IS BACK'....
and as much undeserved hate frank mir gets, dude is pretty goddamn good at commentating
hes great at color commentary.. as long as its not condit.. then he turns into a moron..
other than that good stuff on goldie.. knew he trained bjj so that makes sense..
I think he trains in kick boxing
I think the "dumb" shit comes from when Goldie saysa like, "He avoids takedowns 27.5 percent of the time, Joe" His random facts...or every time he says "show of respect" and when he repeats what he's said about other fighters....hes got the voice though and he is cool so I like him in UFC
he def does kickboxing but i couldve sworn during a broadcast rogan mention goldie training in bjj.. loco??
