I don't care who it is. It can be Florian, Anik, hell I wouldn't even mind Mauro. As long as it's not Goldberg.
To me his announcing is distasteful and sounds second class as he always sounds like someone who had just discovered MMA no longer than 3 months ago.
I've seen Goldie do some other work with announcing, and he was actually good.... However he makes me cringe when he announces for the UFC.
I also understand that Goldie has to sometimes play the aloof character so Joe can engage in educating the newer audience, but that isn't what bothers me. What bothers me is his little nuances like constantly saying "brazilian jiu jitsu black belt under Cesar Gracie." "IT's that STOCKTON SLAP Joe." "Well those Diaz brothers have the STOCKTON SLAP".
