I thought he was being very biased last night on more than one occasion. Like in the Cain/Cheick fight bashing Cain's gnp. Or in the Silva/Franklin fight. I thought both were pretty tired but he kept only stating Silva was tired. And there were too many times to count in the Davis/Hardy fight as well. Or the comment that "Saunders is not ready for fighters of Swicks caliber" Did he watch a different fight than I did or did he just forget that Saunders was schooling Swick for most of the fight. I could not believe it. Very one sided commentating imo. I found myself wanting more Goldberg less Rogan... No it wasn't THAT bad haha. Anyone else think so?

Joe rogan is known to do that sometimes but i think for the most part he just points out the facts.Wandy was gased but he also said he thought wandy maybe won the fight.I don't know why you think saunders was all over swick because swick was all over him so i think rogan was just pointing out a fact.I like rogan's opions on the fights.

I only caught a few fights on the web but Wand was gasses I also heard him say rich looked tired too. Cain had Kongo down for prob 14 of the 15 min of the fight had mount many times and couldn't finish him. Kongos is So bad on his back i'm not sure he even trains from his back. He gave his back up many times and Cain couldn't finish. I think Joe is great and couldn't ask for much more.

I didn't notice anything to be honest. Saunders was not beating Swick for the majority of the fight, I dont know where you got that. His remarks on Cain's GnP were dead on. Maybe I just didnt pick up on it?

The one thing I noticed was his early jokes, the one crack about "UFC underwear" and wearing it had me in stitches. The only funnier line was during one fight, I think it was Swick-Saunders, when the ref was teasing standing and one of them was like "You gonna f'n hold me all night?" Too hilarious. Great audio work yesterday by whoever caught that.

The weirdest thing to me is that Franklin knocked Wandy down twice, and rocked him once in the 2nd, and he only wanted to talk about the 2 times Wandy rocked Rich. Awesome fight from both guys though. I would like to see a rematch when Wandy is better at cutting weight, but I thought Franklin won it clearly.

Goldie and Rogan always lean towards the more popular fighter. Go back and watch GSP vs Karo. They really didn't realize that GSP was goign to win the fight. They kept thinking tat Karo was going to pull off a sub. It took 14 minutes before they went "GSP is going to win"

If you think Saunders was schooling Swick I think I was watching a differant fight to you aswell.....

His commentating is always a little bias though, I tend not to pay to much attention. What annoyed me in the Franklin Wandy fight was how he kept mentioning every good shot Wand landed, but didnt even mention the fact Rich dropped him with a HK.

Should of read the thread before I posted. Completely agree with this though.

LOL I cant think of any way anyone would think Saunders was even being competitive at any point in the fight.
