What did you all think of Shamrock's commentary on Saturday? How does he compare to guys like Rogan, Mir, B. Goldberg? I didn't mind him. I thought he did a solid job.

....meh.... boring no excitement and didnt explain too much of the technical part of the sport. more so just the basic he has a great takedown defense or that was a nice combination. I prefer the Rogan approach. Rogan takes you through a lot of the grappling like "you see him rotating his to setup 'submission' or hes going to pin him against the cage and attempt to sweep this leg or he needs to place his land hand on his bicep to do this" etc etc

I would choose Rogan, Bas, Florian, Mir, etc... over Shamrock.

I see where you are coming from and I agree. Maybe since it was there first network show, they told him to keep it simple, and explain basic stuff, and in more simple language so more people would understand?

that is a good point. we all know he knows the sport well. But it could just be he has horrible communication skills...so who knows. If he hosts again(on network tv) well see if he does better

Mir and Joe Rogan are the dream team.....

Old Glammers looked scared a little but he was better than that wrestler guy they had...

shamrock commentated multiple ufc's way back in the day after he beat tito and retired. He's a great commentator.
