Wasn't able to see ppv, Anything happen with Goldberg?
I wonder if he's sticking around and will be doing something else for them or smaller shows so it's not necessarily a goodbye. I was listening to the tone of his voice tonight and trying to sense any hint of dontgiveafuckitis but didn't catch it. I'm thinking it's not going to be a cold break.
No reason they can't give him a friendly send off if it is a total breakup.
Goldie is the retarded stepchild of the UFC that finally turned 18.
He gave a sendoff and thanked his friends, but there wasn't any fanfare
No actually, no mention of it.
I didn't see the PPV. Replacing Goldie makes a lot of sense to me (let's see who they replace him with before declaring victory...)
BUT... Goldie has been in this game for a long time and has consistently come across as a nice guy who loves the UFC. Everybody who talks for a living says stupid shit sometimes. He was also asked to rep some pretty stupid stuff over the years (example one: "Corn Nuts. Corn to the Core". example two: whatever terrible Spike vampire show that had a promo with the phrase "dripping with vampire eroticism").
Yeah. I want him replaced with somebody better. I also wanted him to have a send off that recognized that he has been a mainstay of the UFC experience for many of us for a long time.
Too bad if that didn't happen
In a parallel universe, the UFC would have given him some respect after years of dedication and allowed him to say his goodbyes.
I miss Goldie. First voice you ever heard in TV while prepping your food and drink in the kitchen was Goldie and you knew the PPV is starting.
Yes if his check cashes.
Nothing at all. kept it silent
Depends. If they sacked him he is obviously not happy and lost source of income. Imagine yourself in a job when boss telling you are sacked. How would you react? You would say goodbye to colleagues and at the same you would slag of your boss out of anger.
This is why he wasn't given goodbye speech, what he supposed to say? "Ahhh, well guys, it is the last time you see me, I am parting my ways with promotion..."
Its more like promotion parting ways with him.
I think he would've been professional with his goodbye and not make the UFC look bad. After all, they trusted him enough to do UFC 207. But I can understand it being uneasy for them because it brings up a conversation about the UFC letting him go. I still believe he deserved a proper goodbye. He is just as much the UFC branding as all the other people. I would want the same for Dana White, Joe Rogan, Buffer.. etc
Calm down. He is not dead.
Like I said, depends on circumstances. There was no room for him to keep it professional, the only way would be lying.
He should just be glad he didnt get escorted out of the venue after the main event ended
Naw and I made a thread about it that went nowhere.
" I would like to say my goodbye and thank you for my support. The UFC and I have decided to part ways. I wish the UFC nothing but the best and thank them for allowing me to do something I truly do love. It's been a honor and good night everybody.
