    Yes, maybe you find him boring or have other reasons to dislike him, I'm not asking about that.

    I can't really google it so was wondering would some of the more informed members of the Sherbrethren family have some information or insight into this? They're bringing in a guy like Felder to commentate on UFC cards (and he has done well) when they have a seasoned fighter/commentator like Florian available.

    Did he piss in someone's cornflakes?

    He has probably been the busiest retired person I’ve ever seen

    They should have kept Frank Mir.

    It was a long Time ago, but I remember him doing a pretty good job in the WEC Days...

    Oops forgot about the whole plagiarism thing, that's probably the right answer.

    Hes busy finishing fights.


    I like his viewpoint actualy and he calls fights well. Do you think it is because the Fox deal and the fact that he got in trouble for the “plagiarism” thing in the lead up to Dillashaw vs Cruz?

    He wouldn't have time to plagiarize if he commentated live?

    Its a real shame they don't use him on commentary anymore. I think he's damn good.

    But yeah as you already assumed TS they black listed him after the plagiarism incident
