    This is a thread that I think most people will like and could create a fair few laughs.

    I personally find myself moaning (maybe I'm a grumpy git) at the TV sometimes at little things about MMA/UFC broadcasts that erk me. A few examples to start you guys off below:

    - Joe Rogan's pre-fight hype videos where ever Hardy is deemed "GSP's toughest match-up yet!"

    - Commentators never announcing who they think won the fight, Boxing they do it all the time, lemme know what you "experts" think, without bias!

    - Referee's immediately saying "work" when they've only been in the clinch/on the ground for 5 seconds.

    - Cornermen/women who never seem to give technical advice. "Great job", "Just breathe" - like okay, he's relaxed now, give the man some advice!

    etc. etc.

    How about you guys... any pet hates from in Octagon, fight week???

    Commentators never announcing who they think would win .. they used to have Eddie Bravo there to give his unofficial judging of the fight, and I liked it.

    Yeah it's like Lederman on HBO, I know some people may consider it as swaying the viewer but I like to hear from their point of view.

    When the dumbfuck ring girls come on to and walk back to their seat and do that lame ass wave and the commentator EVERY time says "the beatiful....."
    Because it's obviously written in their notes that they have to say that as company policy.

    Small detail but the ring girl that isn't walking the fight sitting in a robe like a sack o' taters clearly bored out of her mind catches my eye more than the "sexy" blow kiss from the girl on duty. The contrast is just off.

    Also, those nicknames for cities and states they use ("Ahhh, we are in the beautiful windy city.") annoys the hell outta me.

    When fighters won't sit still for the cut man and ref to prep them before entering cage.

    You know what Guida, just go in there without vaseline since you ate a brick of coffee.

    Honestly i wish fight pass had the option to turn the commentary off. I dont hate the commentary but sometimes i wish to turn it off. Pride sometimes released certain fights with this option,and with the japanese crowd being so quiet,you could hear the fighters talking to each other,and the corner's advice.

    Guida is the only fighter i know who can get choked out,and have still enough excess energy to do a few laps around the ring.

    People in here constantly complain about rogan being biased... I can't even imagine how it would be if he actually picked winners/scored the fights.

    (Which he has said many times he doesn't want to or can't really/fairly do while commentating)

    For some reason I don't like it when Joe Silva goes into the octagon to shake the winners hand just after the fight is finished. You can see he gets pissed sometimes when the fighter hugs him and they are swetty as hell.

    I also dont like when Jon Anik is interviewing and comes out with longest question in the world, which he says really quickly in a monotonous robotic like fashion.

    I hate interviewing post fight combatants that just lost the fight while still inside the Octagon.

    I used to not like any affiliate of the UFC suggesting that "we" are not true MMA fans if . . (Fill in the blank) Tiny WC's, WMMA and or anything else they deem worth attempting to degrade their paying clientele.

    Now I just laugh at their ignoramus back sides, and picture their faces in my toilet as I pea-pea!

    Bruce Buffer - can't stand his announcing

    Get the guy from GLORY. He's much better.

    They should give customers to listen to another set of announcers. Anybody would be better right about now. They don't even think anymore, they just regurgitate the same shit for every show.
