    Titos awful. People have this image of him as a trash talker but just cos he runs his mouth doesnt mean anything he is saying is worth a damn. Hes a terrible speaker. I know he had a rough upbringing and probably didnt go to school much,but people keep giving him these jobs,wow. He must be cheap ahaha.

    Still...thats who tito really is,warts and all. Ill take that over a colby try hard fake anyday.

    Julie Kedzie was pretty terrible. She didn't commentate as much as try to push and sell WMMA at all costs.

    But I think overall Gus Johnson takes the cake.

    I can't think of anyone. The cringey ones I guess didn't last very long.

    I love Dominick Cruz, but to me him screaming "NOOO!!" while Cormier was getting KOed by Miocic was so bad. Almost ruined the moment.
    I can't get used to commentators who aren't impartial.

    I was for them getting rid of goldie if they were gonna bring in someone better but they didnt do that. They just cut him. Thats lame. Might as well bring his ass back. And he deserved a nice sendoff. What the FUCK

    I seen him hyping that Bellator card with the 14 finishes in 14 fights an he was claiming fans could not ask for more from an event. I wanted to slap him in face with large salmon an explain that anyone can put together a card with all finishes, we call them squash matches, the Coker speciality. His commentary during the broadcast made me turn it off an go to bed, awful.

    I watch Combate and yes, Peña takes the art of commentating to new lows. Only Campbell can give her a run for her money, but he is the boss so it doesn’t matter.

    typical Combate/DAZN fight:

    Peña: Nooo! Don’t do that! NOOOO!! Fight the wrists! NOOOO!!!

    Campbell: These guys need to stand up and start throwing punches if they want to impress me. Don’t they know they’re fighting in front of the boss
    .

    I’m not exaggerating even a little bit.

    But with Combate, the English/DAZN commentary doesn’t matter. Only Univision counts, and they use professional commentators for that.

    Wish Invicta would replace Kedzie with Laura Sanko full time

    Not cringe but it was funny when Jon Anik said on McGregor-Diaz something like "endurance shouldnt be a problem for any of the two" and shortly after conor was already gassed as fuck

    Rogans good during the super big fights, he was great during McGregor vs Khabib and Ronda vs Holly

    But I have to add for the miilionth time, Combate regularly beats UFC in the ratings.

    I know it’s Nielsen and doesn’t really count, but still.

    Khabib vs Johnson comes to mind when he is obnoxious.

    Yeah, he is cringey... but still in an entertaining way.
    If we don't go into the obscurity of Invicta cards (LOL) with the absolutely cringe Julie Kedzie, then my pick would be Jon Anik a few years ago. He just tried TOO HARD. He is getting more natural and better nowadays though... (or we just got used to him, I don't know...)

    Ha, that was a very funny moment.... I also realized it, when I have rewatched that fight recently.
