    Relaxed informative and knowledgable of the sport

    His uk Goldberg counterpart sounds like he has no clue which fighter is which and is reading que cards

    I can't stand any commentator that isn't a big fan of the sport they are commentating on

    Hire more fighters for commentary get rid of the rest cept mauro

    Hardy is certainly doing well. I think he has probably already earned a long term spot as a commentator.

    Agreed. I like him.
    Whatever it takes to get rid of Anik.

    I actually think fighters generally don't make good commentators. Florian and Stann are dreadful to listen to, for example. Hardy, who is doing a great job, is more the exception than the rule.

    I wouldn't mind seeing them mix up the commentary crews every once in a while to see who pairs together the best.

    Hardy is great as a commentator relaxed and he seems so comfortable. they should try mixing up commentators more often like goldberg + hardy

    The other guy lets call him "bow tie"

    He keeps making all these corny quips like "that's sure to be an exciting event"

    He reminds me of a girl that claims she loves football and nfl but doesn't know who tom Brady is or who he plays for or something.... Just common knowledge sounds forced coming out of bow tie

    He doesn't know which fight is next or any random info that any common fan would prolly know

    Considering he's prolly had weeks to review AND it's his job for him to still sound so lost and like he has no clue who's who is dreadful

    Florian is becoming a little to commentator esque for me.

    He's got a "on air persona" now like the jobs gone to his head

    Anik is horrible

    Mir was a little Ackward

    Stan and shael are good

    Cormier terrible

    Rashad meh

    Tito the worst

    Give me hardy and mauro

    And this is commentator bashing not fighter bashing so don't ban me

    Florian and Stann may as well be the same person in the commentary booth. Stann isn't bad at the desk, but he's a boring shill during commentary, just like Florian.

    I also would like to hear Sonnen do commentary.

    The Dan Hardy "OOOOOOOOH" is absolutely iconic. Especially when Doomsday dropped Laflare. Absolutely mimicked my reaction.
