    I think he does a good job, I think it's better when Rogan is still there as well and not "on assignment" but nevertheless he does a good job.

    I would have posted this on Sherdog, but Bas reads the forums there and I respect the guy, but to be honest I think Randy does a better job than Bas and people have been worshipping Bas' commentary forever.

    I think Randy's commentary is pretty bland compared to Bas'. I don't mind them switching it up every now and then cus I definetly get tired of Joe.

    I agree that's more bland, but that's the role he plays. Usually Goldberg or Rogan have some sort of colour commentary, and then Couture adds his experience/technical background to the table. When Bas talks, sometimes it's kind of annoying after awhile sometimes I find. He is still better than Trigg though, for sure.

    Personally I wish it were Rogan and Couture all of the time. :o

    I can't stand Goldberg and I REALLY hate it when he starts spewing adverstisements during fights....I mean know thats his job but its especially annoying when something exciting is happening and Rogan or Couture are trying to talk about it.

    I actually like Rogan as an announcer. He is a funny guy, and really gets into it.

    Randy is also good because he is so well respected, and his calm way of explaining what is happening is probably better for the people who don't know what is going on

    I agree... I think Randy does a good job, but would like to see him paired with Joe Rogan instead so you get the technical stuff plus the color comentary/excitement that Rogan brings...

    Yeah I don't mind Randy at all. It's like my dad is there explaining stuff to me when he talks.

    And yeah, him and Rogan would be a good combo. The Goldberg I can take or leave, but at least he's been making an effort to be more exciting. Like at the end of UFC Unleashed he now makes a happy face and fist pumps as he says 'until next time, see you in the octagon' or whatever it is. :dunno:

    Bas has a lot of character and it shows in his commentating most of the time.

    Randy, while he is an awesome dude, isn't quite as lively.
