All the while trying to keep pace with a sport that, at times, can move at a breakneck speed from one point to the next. The only sport IMO that's harder to commentate is hockey given the speed in which things move.


It always astounds me when people rank on Rogan, Florian, Bonnar, Mir or Stann as color guys but express an insane love for Bas Rutten. Bas adds nothing to the product and is there solely to watch a show and get himself over.

They should have put Anik and Florian on the card on Wednesday with Rogan and Goldberg on the card tonight instead of the other way around.

Goldberg had mentioned that he specifically wanted to be on the Troops card. I doubt they'd say no to a guy who once turned down the WWE for them.

Bas is better suited to do in studio analysis like he does on Inside MMA then do color commentary. In studio work is a lot easier then doing color commentary.
