    He has a surface level knowledge of MMA. I’m not knocking him because he does seem passionate about it but he doesn’t have enough knowledge in my opinion. I prefer fighters as color commentators and there’s no way Stephen A is gonna do play by play. Let him hone his skills first.

    he does have energy, and would make for a great hype man.

    I watch first take... he doesn't know anything about MMA other than Jon Jones is the best of all time

    Was it Jones? I vaguely remember an episode where he said Till was the greatest of all time. Haha. Quite a silly take, but when you think about it - is it? An incredible striker with near elite head movement. His grappling isn't better than someone like Maias yet but he's on the path.

    Throw in Skip Bayless too. Let's see Smith and Bayless commentate just one event. Just one I want to see.

    You gotta be kidding me. That's like me getting on air (with the limited basketball IQ that I have) and just say, "Le Bron" this and "Stephan" that every other word. Some people might think that I know basketball. But purist will know that don't know jackshit about basketball and that I'm just throwing out names. SAS doesn't know MMA. He is learning. but he's far from being an expert. He couldn't name the top 5 guys ranked in every weight class. He knows Ronda Rousey. He knows Conor McGregor. He might even know Khabib. Outside of that, SAS is a casual fan.

    The last thing this sport needs is stephen a smith.
    I stopped listening to his dribble about 5-10 years ago. I honestly don't know what show is his nor am I interested. The guy looked like he knew his stuff next to Skip but anyone would. After Skip it became clear Stephen A is only slightly more rational.

    because he doesn't know shit about MMA, he basically doesn't talk about anything MMA related without bringing conor into it.


    like i know this is a bait thread, but fuck you.
