Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), the world’s leading mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion, is expected to drive up its asking price for broadcasting rights when its current television deal expires in 2018.

But if and when UFC does set sail for greener pastures — or stay put on FOX — its live programming may undergo a facelift. That’s according to industry insider and television ratings guru Dave Meltzer.

I like Rogans podcast but his commentating has become quite stale, he can be bias and he usually says the same things every ppv and Goldberg has always been a robot anyway, I don't really blame them though they been doing it for too long.

I'd take Stann, Florian or Hardy over Rogan any day

100% Rogan has become a broken record over the last few years. Goldie has always been a corn nuts robot. A commentary change would be great IMO

It was weird at first when they had started having other guys announce the fights cuz you were so used to rogan and goldie, but I like the change of pace and not hearing the same thing over and over again.

I literally find no difference between listening to Joe and Mike in RL or in UFC2 for PS4. Same stupid cliche fight info, same stupid catch phrase reactions. Though maybe I'm just tired of getting knocked out and hearing Joe say, 'Wow, wow,..wow......wow", and "That's the most incredible thing I've ever seen!". Go look up a double rainbow Joe!

Oh, and please no Brian Stann, dude has remind you how he used to fight in the UFC every 5 minutes.

As much as I hate watching his dance competitions, I really like Cruz as a commentator. One of the most informed guys out there, and he never get tired of listening to himself talk. I'd like him and Anik to take the prime spot, especially if John is rocking a 209 tat.

So long as it's not Dan Hardy, that was not good at all on the night in Australia.
