I'm not bashing him but it seems like the only accurate information that comes out of his mouth is what Joe Rogan just said or what the UFC telepromter says...

Does he know anything about MMA? These are just a few of the quotes that I heard form him last night that made me laugh my but off....

During the Jardine/Liddel fight like 20 seconds after Jardine got cut open "OMG Jardine is cut open!" lol DUH!!!

"Diego promises this will be a better performance then the one he had a UFC 70" It was 69!!

there was like 40 more but I was just laughing my ass off all night at him...

one of my friends I was watching it with was like..

"Dude I F**kin hate this guy..." just the way he said it! LMAO!!!

Mike Goldberg is like the news anchor, and Joe Rogan is like the Field Reporter. Mike asks stupid questions, and makes obvious comments, to keep the conversation going. And Joe gives the more educated view on the fighters, and what is happening in the fights. But no, I dont think Mike knows the difference between an mma fight, and a wwe match.

MALICE has it nailed. I don't think Goldberg is a fan, and Rogan is a big fan, so you can easily see the difference when Rogan actually studies the sport because he's into it while Goldberg just does it for the paycheck.

The most annoying thing he keeps saying for me is how a wrestler wants to take it to the ground, but only if he can be on top. Well duh.

Every UFC event feels like a Sherman (Goldberg) and Mr. Peabody (Rogan) cartoon short when Goldberg asks all those annoying questions.

Goldberg has got to go.They don't even talk to him on the prefight show or anything.If Al Gore had something of a personality,he would be Mike Goldberg.

You think that Mike Goldberg says stupid things? Have you seen the Fight professor? He says some really stupid shit. One fight, he said that one guy should be afraid of the other guy because the other guy had a lot of tattooes. The guy, without the tattooes, ending up whooping the other guys ass. It just goes to show how ignorant the Fight Professor is.

Just watch Cage Rage and you will never want to trade Goldberg for anybody else ever again.

I like Rogan and Goldberg. They ARE UFC. Would be very strange without either of them.

I was just thinking last night how Goldberg doesn't really know what he's talking about. But then again i tihnk that every UFC. I like it when he always says "So you want to be an Ultimate Fighter?" everytime someone gets hit hard or is bleeding.

I just like watching the prefight when Goldberg and Rogan are "chatting" and Goldberg is always in Rogan's personal space. He's leaning in staring and constantly nodding his head. There have been several times I could tell that Rogan felt a little uncomfortable about it, and slightly leaned away.

Funny story.

So we were watching UFC 76, and I was thinking "I don't know why everyone hates Mike Goldberg so much."

Then literally the moment after thinking that, Golderg says "The long awaited match that we've been waiting a long time for."

And it was all downhill from there, really.

Goldberg gets repetitive, but I bet he knows more UFC history and stats than Rogan. The man has been commentating for the UFC since like, UFC 20 or something like that, he knows his shit. People give him too much criticism in my opinion. Bas Rutten is great, but have you seen him on Inside MMA? He is horrible! He is constantly stumbling over his words and trying to find things to say. He is a good play by play guy, but you need a straight shooter to fill in the voids, Mike is great at this and has perfect timing. The fight professor is often not all together professional as someone already mentioned. I think the only guy who is a better straight shooter than Goldberg is Mauro, who is definitely my favorite all time commentator.

Yeah, Goldberg is probably the only man for the job. He is definitely more commentator than fan... but if you listen to some of the old UFC commentating, you're glad when you hear Goldberg today.

Goldberg's a douche. I still remember one of the funniest things he said a few UFC's ago

He was talking about someone being older, maybe Dan Henderson, and he says "The guy is 37 years old, not quite as old as that HW champ" Well, randy was in the booth with them and obviously he was trying to just put a little joke on Randy, but both Randy and Joe answered Goldberg with literally about 5-10 seconds of dead silence. You could tell Goldberg was thinking to himself "Oh, shit.... I just made a REALLY bad joke on the air and these guys think I'm a loser" Which I hope they do

Mike and Joe's comments are really biased to some fighters. Randy saves the comments when he's in.

Give the mic to Rampage!!!!

Ha.... Rampage has about a 3 second delay before you can understand what he's saying half the time. Did you hear his post fight interview when he beat hendo?
