    I remember the broadcast for JDS vs. Cain 1 was an hour long just for that one fight, and then the fight ended in like a minute.

    AHH. The good ol Fox days.

    He channeled his inner Tito Ortiz.

    To get a comfortable guy so out of place is a beautiful thing

    Nah, he botched it. But it's not his gig. When he's live, he's just talking, not following a script. But in a very formal setting like that Fox clip, he's a fish out of water. Reading from a script, dressed in a suit... it doesn't work for him. He said himself he doesn't like wearing a suit. I think it's because he's so short and wide, a suit is very unflattering on that kind of physique.

    Joe Rogan was probably speechless from seeing this great promo

    Also the cameraman botched even worse. He mixed up GSP and Frankie Edgar.

    Classic Joe, the embodiment of incompetence.

    Kinda funny how much shit he was giving Goldberg while being a complete goof himself.

    By the look on Chucks face he was either personally and deeply offended by the whole thing. Or high on coke and paranoid and confused.

    It's an all time classic. That whole evening was a nightmare come true for the UFC. Not airing Benderson vs Guida was a huge mistake and then after almost an hour of broadcasting the only fight ended in about a minute. So much buildup that just deflated.

    They tried to make the UFC like boxing, where they ignored the rest of the fights on the card and only focused & promoted 1 fight.

    Yes, talking like a retard was planned, he didn't screw up at all. Why you white knighting Joe?
