    Some classic quotes at the bottom here. I know he's not the best commentator but fuck I'll miss him


    ------------


    And it is all over!
    Like his brutal mispronunciation of BJ Penn's nickname, Mike Goldberg's career lasted longer than many thought possible.
    For months, if not years, rumours have swirled about the potential departure of the veteran UFC play-by-play commentator.
    UFC president Dana White brought an end to those rumours yesterday when he confirmed UFC 207 would be Goldberg's last event with the promotion.
    White refused to elaborate, telling reporters to direct their questions at Goldberg.
    But he did hint at locking in a permanent replacement by mid-2017.
    "We have guys right not from Anik to several fighters who are involved, but I've had a plan for a couple of years now, I've been waiting for it to play out and it's now playing out," White said.
    For all of his flaws - and there are a few - the fans I know will miss Goldie's unintentional humour and his distinctive, stylised delivery.
    He started with the UFC at Ultimate Japan 1 in 1997 and became one half of the sport's dominant commentary duo with Joe Rogan.
    Along the way he rejected a lucrative offer from the WWE, called more than 900 NHL games and blew his one and only NFL broadcast.
    But come what may, you could rely on Goldberg to make you laugh at least once each UFC show.
    He might not have learned a great deal about the sport from that front-row seat of his, but the UFC won't be quite the same without him.
    It certainly won’t be virtually identical.
    On a serious note – thank you to one of the voices of MMA.
    Presumably White has organised some sort of tribute for this weekend's event, but just in case, here are some of our favourite quotes.

    Goldberg: "Michael Jordan-esque in his grappling skills is Travis Lutter."
    Rogan: "No. No, he's not. No, he's not that good."
    Goldberg: "Ah, Kobe Bryant, maybe?"
    Rogan: "Ah, no."

    Goldberg: "Eric Simpson is the 30-something Randy Couture of the 40-something crowd."
    Rogan: "What?"

    Goldberg: "Don't forget, Blade: The Series, premiering tonight right here on Spike following Ultimate Fight Night. A combination of action, gore and creepiness with a nice... a little nice dose of vampire sexuality, not to mention the best action production values on TV. Blade: The Series , right here on spike."
    Rogan: "What exactly is vampire sexuality?"
    Goldberg: "It's a card that they gave me to read."

    Goldberg on Anderson Silva: "His precision is, ah, really precise."

    Rogan as a fighter works for a submission: "He's got it under now. Oh, he's got it."
    Goldberg: "IT IS ALL O- no, sorry."

    Goldberg as a fighter enters the Octagon: "Very excited to make his way into the Octagon for the very first time.
    Goldberg: "Touching the fence for the very first time."
    Rogan: "Running out of stuff to say?"
    Goldberg: "Pretty much."

    Goldberg: "They're speaking Portuguese."
    Rogan: "That's Japanese, brother."
    Goldberg: "Oh, really? Thank you. I should have known that."
    Rogan: "You're the one married to a Japanese chick."
    Goldberg: "That is correct."

    Goldberg: "One of the most talented fighters to ever enter the Octagon is BJ Penn, The Prodeny. The Progigy. The Progeny. The Progidy."

    I'm going to miss his 6th grader spiked haircut and his crazy smiles at Joe when they are face to face while Joe is talking.

    I'm gonna miss Goldie for all the wtf moments and like someone else said, "he may be a goofy dummy on the mic but he is OUR goofy dummy."

    Gonna miss him.

    Joe Warren makes Goldie sound like Howard Cosell.

    Hope he finds his way to WWE. He would belong there quite nicely.

    Soon sadly rogan will be gone too. I loved the fact goldberg was fucked up. This sport is shows people at their best and worst on every show... so why not the commentators too? Hearing goldie and rogan lose it over a fight will mever get old.

    Oh Goldy....Mike Mike Mike...what am I going to miss about you?

    - Your drunken, coked out lean/stare...you gave zero fucks about personal space.

    [​IMG]

    - I'm going to miss the way you looked awkward as fuck in MMA t shirts.

    [​IMG]

    - You gave us the famous Chuck "that look in his eye" line, but I'm going to miss that look in YOUR eyes Mike. A look only possible from Vegas benders and NyQuil.

    [​IMG]

    - Your ability to break dance in Nickelback jeans.

    [​IMG]

    - His quotes...oh those quotes...

    [​IMG]

    - His ability to have us question his sexuality.

    [​IMG]

    - ...but most of all, I'm going to miss your loyal, static presence in a sport I've loved for over 20 years. I said this in another thread the other day-he's a goof, but he's our goof. RIP.

    It won't be the same, but it's time for a change.
