    Dude loves to hear himself talk too much. I can't watch a fight without his detailed analysis distracting me. Sure, he is knowledgeable. That doesn't make him fun to listen to during a fight.

    Dude thinks he's Joe Rogan talking over everybody except he hasn't been doing this for 20 years like Rogan has.

    Someone tell him he doesn't need to wear shoe lifts when he's commentating.

    This sounds like a personal problem.

    Cruz without Rogan is hard to listen to.

    Take a Ritalin if you're that easily distracted.

    Agreed. Cruz is a great analyst, but a terrible ringside commentator. His monotone voice is obnoxious to hear humming on throughout the fight.

    Stann with some filler guy keeping his trap shut is my choice.

    Yeah hes fine with Rogan imo but with Stann it felt like he was constantly trying to 1-up Stanns analysis

    yeah with Rogan at least it's two guys that kind of want to dominate the conversation, but they're not respectful enough not to interrupt each other. So I actually kind of like Rogan, Cruz and that other guy - I just think they need more chemistry.

    But Cruz on his own is constantly trying to be as clear as possible, and explain as much without care for being concise or letting the other guys speak. That last booth in brazil was absolutely dreadful, it might as well have been Cruz by himself.

    Good. Cruz is my least favorite commentator. His voice just grates on me.

    That is the way I feel about Bruce Buffer but I am not missing an event because of his loud mouth yelling into a mic that has gain on it. Joe Rogan is another one and no Jon Anik is doing it, yelling into an amplified mic. Brian Stan is my favorite

    I'm trying to watch a fight with some fun commentating. Not listen to Dom ramble on about this or that fighter's tendencies for minutes at a time. Honestly he can keep that shit to himself I couldn't care less.

    Call the fucking action. Don't recite paragraphs that you thought of and jotted down before the fight.

    And then you have Cormier's dumbass pumping Cruz up like he's some otherworldly analyst/commentator whenever they're doing shit together.

    Sucks for you because he's the best analyst there is and will be the regular color guy once he retires.

    I love him because he's outstanding.

    I turn the volume off and just have audio porn playing when I watch UFC so I couldn't really comment.

    the action is happening right in front of your eyes, there's no need for someone to just spell it out for you. then there's guy like cruz who's detailing what's happening

    You can't complain about monotone and then ask for Stann..

    I don't really mind either guy, but they're about dead even on the charisma slide.

    Here's not detailing anything. He's basically reciting prepared material that he did on each fighter. And while preparation is great, he makes it a point to get out everything he had prepared with little regard for anything else.

    I prefer a two man booth, three is overkill. We need a play by play straight man, and a guy who knows his shit.

    Goldie/Rogan was the best IMO, followed by Bas and Mauro

    I really like Cruz though, his fight IQ is through the roof. He needs more time to to develop his style
