    A common complaint about broadcast announcers for the fights is that they often seem to pre-agree upon a certain narrative, leading them to focus all their attention on one fighter and ignore the other's efforts.

    What if each fighter was assigned a commentator in the broadcast team? One announcer could only describe what the fighter A was or was not doing; the second could only describe the same for fighter B; the third man in the booth blends the two and provides the continuity of narrative.

    At least the sheer desire to speak and get some air time might spread out the observations a little...

    Have one positive announcer that praises everything about both fighters, then have one heel commentator that shits on everything the positive announcer is saying...


    Would make for some entertaining television.

    One commentator spews fight Broscience while the other corrects him...It'd be a satisfying experience for every MMA pedant.

    As shown above, a prowrestling style with one no-nonsense play by play guy and a color heel guy team actually works, with occassional competitor guest.

    Nothing commentators do will ever please fans, because fans want to hear what they want to hear.

    Fans want non-stop praise for their fave fighters and endless hating on fighters they despise.

    Anything less, and fans assume commentators are conspiring against them. It's all totally rational.

    Have one that explains what each fighter is doing right and one explaining what each fighter is doing wrong. Then add this man...

    Rogan picks a side every single fight, so your plan is 50% underway.
