Is it me or is Florian pretty biased in his comentary? I feel like during the Lopez - Sadollah fight every other word out of his mouth was how everything Sadhollah did was fantastic.

It was like that in most fights tonight.

He seemed to pick a fighter at the beginning of the fight and only talk about him

Jabouin, Maldanado and Amir all got the same treatment.

Florian was very biased tonight. I doubt he was doing it on purpose. Hopefully someone lets him know about it.

I didn't notice.

Better than Rogan and his thing for Belcher in that fight.

But sometimes I don't really listen and just watch.

I can deal with the bias...it's the idea that he feels he has to be talking constantly through the entire fight. If the fight is slow or there's not much happening (Amir fight) then just shut up for 10 seconds!

He must have been sitting next to the judges and affected a few of their decisions. After listening to kenflo through the fight, I almost thought Amir was good..... For me to poop on!

I'm a little tired of waiting for Anik/Florian to get better.

It's cool that they're trying another commentary team out but they just don't work for me. Voices too similar, not a whole lot to say, not very good at hyping the fights during the walk outs or during the actual fight. I honestly wouldn't mind them trying to switch the teams around. Florian/Goldberg and Rogan/Anik could work. Florian/Goldberg have done well together before.
