I don't really understand why he is going to be commentaring Elite. Doesn't make sense to me. Anyone got any answers to this?

im not sure, this struck me as kind of odd also.. but i remember reading somewhere that he has a wrestling background and is very interested in and knowledgeable about MMA.. i dont think elitexc would sign him on to commentate if he had no knowledge of the sport, but then again, i have some seen some pretty bad commentators before.. but i guess we will only have to wait three more days to find out how he will do.. i think he will be alright

Even if Slater does know a thing or two about MMA, I think he will still drive me nuts... Bill Goldberg's going to be the other guy, right?

Personally I think they should have one Straight-laced guy and one odd-ball guy... It seems to be the standard for most sports, one guy does play-by-play the other does color commentary...

Seems like they got themselves two 'odd-ball' guys...

AC Slater...I can't take this guy seriously. He also hosted some Amazing Dog Tricks show in the Animal Planet. Now he does mma?

Hopefully its just a temporary situation and they'll get a good play by play guy at some point.

They probably had a casting call for the spot and he was the most recognizable of all the unemployed actors who auditioned. That or he knows someone. Has he done anything since saved by the bell, besides dancing with the stars?

He did have all those guest spots on Nip/Tuck. Apparently AC is a long time fan of MMA the cameras often find him in the audience of UFC events. I think he is going to be like a roving reporter and I don't know if he's actually doing ringside commentary. I'm more concerned with Goldberg. I wish anything and anyone whose been involved in the last decade of pro wrestling would be quarantined on an island somewhere. When a fighter is setting up for a guillotine I imagine Goldberg will say something like "Oh, here comes the piledriver!"

I think a better celebrity team of UFC fans would have been Michael Clark Duncan and Juliette Lewis. A big black guy and a skinny little white girl announcing fights. It's practically a sitcom already.

LOL, that would be comedy,and almostas sad as Goldberg/Lopez IMO
Still. at least it would be funny.

He also did Miss Teen USA.
And now soon he is doing Miss USA.
But it just goes to show if you listen to "the savage dog show" how inferior they are to "the beatdown"
