My top 3 in order are Bas, Rogan and Quadros



Take out Rogan and put in Jimmy Smith and that's my trio

i always watch fights on mute by myself or w/ my gf, but my friend hosts parties for fight nights & im currently trying to convince him to let us make a playlist to listen to during the fights so we can mute the tv there too. I like Rogan, but only when he's doing comedy.

Bermudez to you is Volkmann to me. It's unbearable.



So agree, Volkmann drives me crazy!

I don't know how any of you guys can listen/watch any of that stuff anymore.

I'm at a point where I find most of it annonying, like pre-fight talking by the announcers, post fight interview, press conferences, weigh-ins, countdown shows.

I only want to watch the fight and that's it.



Im like you mate, I stay up late and watch all the prelims, and then tape the main card and fast forward the whole thing excepts the fights, but I was tempted to fast forward a couple of fights on the UFC 150 main card lol.

Some of you guys actually mute the fights? I guess I can understand if you truly contemplate jamming screwdrivers in your ears while certain people are commentating but I don't think I could do that, part of the appeal of watching live fights to me is the atmosphere, nothing like the crowd going nuts when something crazy happens or the sound of a heavy strike landing. I find it pretty easy to just tune out the commentary no matter who it is when I'm focused on the fight. Sometimes it bleeds through and is annoying but it would just feel like something was missing if it was muted. That's just me though.

yeah well i mute it, hang a curtain in front of the screen and face my chair in the opposite direction. Everyone knows the purest way to watch the fights is to not watch at all, I need only sense their presence.

Knowing you, I don't doubt this for a second.

I was more annoyed by him constantly showing off the fanged mouth piece, like it was the first time we ever saw one of those or something.
