    A big criticism I see is that Anik/Kenny sound too similar. How would you feel about Sonnen/Florian in the booth together? After Sonnen retires of course. Two former high level fighters with tons of knowledge to educate fans. They seem to have a great rapport on UFC Tonight.

    Not to replace Goldberg/Rogan though. I love those guys. Just on the smaller events.

    I'd be cool with that and I don't even care for Sonnen myself. Even Brian Stann is better than Anik.

    You need Anik in there for the promotion stuff though.

    You'd still need a play-by-play guy. Kenny does color & so would Chael.

    He's terrible! He isn't so much calling the fight as he is producing a commercial for the fight half of the time, for one. He also says some of the dumbest shit to the point I wish he'd just shut up completely. I'd rather one dude sitting there calling the fight alone than having Anik chime in with his bullshit filler and moronic misapprehensions.

    He's doing the best he can, Aniks ok by me, he just needs to partner up with someone who doesn't sound exactly like him.

    I love Sonnen but he is too biased, he sees every fight as black and white, usually favoring a wrestler or someone hes trained with.
