    Fuck Daley. Bellator should contact Twinkle Toes Trigg or Pat Miletich. Both of those guys are waaay better than what Bellator have currently as Fight Commentators.

    He was very unprofessional. I would not keep him on the payroll as Bellator either.

    Sure he can have his opinion that MVP only fights cans. Funny enough that would include Daley. But you keep that to yourself or word it in annother way. Critic is fine but you need to tone it the right way.

    In no job you can run around and sabotage your employer directly and not get kicked out.

    I didn’t even know he was an analyst

    With that said I could never even imagine him in that role

    Daley has ruined so many career opportunities over the years. Big chip on those shoulders.

    Too bad, Daley is ejected for telling thw truth... Too good commentators like Jimmy Smith and Sean Wheelock lose their jobs for shills like Big John.

    Daley was way out of line with his comments about MVP, stay in your lane buddy....you dont trash the product that the company thats paying for a gig is putting out there....

    I do agree they could have gotten rid of Glazer in the same motion though

    I liked Daley as an analyst. Definitely had room to grow, but he didn't bullshit. And he was right on the money. Sucks that it got him fired but he can always get more experience in some other organizations.

    This is a great point. It's true for any league really. Sure the more local team broadcasters can rip on the visiting team once in a while, but you can't be on an NFL broadcast and constantly rip how terrible teams are. It does happen on talk shows and the guys looking for clicks, but during the broadcast you don't want to put your own product down too much. It's bad for business.

    ...is it, though? i'm not so sure, especially when the flipside is big john's bigger mouth.

    i generally find honesty refreshing from talking heads.

    I don't know why this happened, his comment was not so offensive. Honestly, the guy has the right to speak up his mind.

    I don't get why Bellator is shying away from acknowledging they book one sided fights. They're insulting the audiences intelligence by not acknowledging these guys are cans.

    Like the other poster mentioned, in boxing there is not much insecurity about mentioning that the fight they are watching is a mismatch or a tune up fight. It's not a big deal...


    I don't mind any of Bellator's announcers but Big John has to go. His commentary is so one dimensional it hurts.

    The people with access to microphones on Bellator broadcasts all suck. Fire them all. Really hurt the product.
