Ever notice that the black fighters are always described as "athletic and explosive"

I think Rogan and Goldberg must have used the words "athletic" and "explosive" about 17 times each to describe Rashad and Melvin.

It's funny though cause I don' think I've ever heard them use those words so many times to describe white fighters. Is it because there just aren't any athletic and explosive white fighters out there?

I'm almost positive I've heard them say that about GSP, and anyway Rashad and Melvin are "explosive" and "Athletic".

Perhaps because Melvin and Rashad ARE athletic and explosive?

If you can think of white UFC fighters that have the same kind of athleticism and explosiveness as those two, feel free to review tape of those fighters and see if Rogan/Goldberg make note of it.

Otherwise, there's nothing wrong with making accurate statements.

Both the aformentioned fighters are pretty athletic and explosive, wish I didn't have to hear it every 10 seconds though.

You're nit-picking.

Now, if Rogan said Melvin and Rashad could "jump" higher than GSP or some other white fighter then you might have a point.
