I cannot wait to hear Big John behind the mic. Now, if Affliction really wants to make a splash, they'd throw him in to ref the Fedor/Silvia fight as well. Come to think of it, John didn't have many kind words about the UFC's free card during his appearance on Inside MMA last week....Hmmm I guess the pieces fit a little better now.

At any rate, I just hope Affliction can keep up this momentum. It seams like the more announcements that come out, the more sceptical I am that they can replicate any success. This card seems bloated to me, I think the headliners could have been broken down into probably two or three follow-up cards.

Good luck Affliction!

Im kind of bummed that ill be missing there announcing, but then i re-think about it and realize that i dont care because im going to be there
*happy dance*

Really though this should be a great combo just as long as John Mccarthy isnt horrendous, and with his knowledge of the sport i sincerely doubt it.

No Mauro is spreading. I cant stand his voice.

To me a play by play announcer should be like a bass player. You dont really notice him until you have a bad one. While i cant help but notice Mauro, and that is not a good thing.


The color commentary is another story. I should remember him. He should have good knowledge and some interesting quips to throw in. I think John McCarthy has that covered. Interesting to see how good his delivery is.

I have never liked Mauro (and I have always felt weird i am the only one), but I really can't wait for Big John.

Now a Bas and Big John team would get me hard.

the refs must do a good job during the fights if they dont want to get flamed on the mic by the #1
