    Mauro is good shit.

    Better than some of those fuckgoof UFC commentators and he was better than some of the shit WWE commentators they have.

    I think he's fucking awful. Would be good for the WWE. Way to corny, over the top and forced for the Bellator gig. Glad hes kept far away from the UFC.

    Mauro is a legend, and from what I’ve heard and read, he’s a nice guy.

    But his commentary has become unlistenable. He was fine with Bas in PRIDE—and wasn’t even that bad in Strikeforce—but has just gotten worse and worse throughout the years.

    He's utterly dogshit, just embarrassing to listen to.

    Always uses 90s pop culture references for some bizarre reason.

    I liked him in PRIDE but don't like him for modern MMA. He fits an entertainment focused MMA show. Not a sports one.

    I don't hate him but he's admittedly a little annoying and corny.

    A lot of people hate his one liners but he brings humor into a combat sport which nobody else has been able to do which makes Mauro Ranallo the GOAT.

    Mauro at least has a 50/50 split with people who dislike him and people who like him. Big John is 100% dislike. Josh Thompson is a goof who has grown on me

    Mauro would be good with someone who can reign him in. Dan Hardy would be good

    Don't like him; tries to hard and just comes off corny.

    It might take baking soda and only a few other ingredients to turn him into Carlos Ghosen. They share so many common traits which may be expressed quite differently in public

    Never have, never will. He belongs in pro wrestling. Yes, the two sports have a stronger connection than most mma fans will ever admit, but commentary style should not be one of them.

    Pride nostalgia is no pass for being trash
    Schiavello is worse. Mauro just acts retarded. Schillavello can barely speak at all past the symbolic ONE dick lodged in his throat. Dude never says anything outside the approved ONE narratives

    I do , i guess most people hates him because he is raised up in Canada. All successfull from Canada usually gets haters more often by americans such as Jim Carrey and Justin Bieber and do not forget John Candy (RIP).

    I think he sounds good only on strikeforce, everything else is trash.
