There have been threads made for this before but I'd like to open the topic up again.

So who is the best commentator in MMA right now?

I say Jimmy Smith, hands down. He's a former fighter that has a ton of mma knowledge,and doesn't show bias when calling a fight. He has great post fight interviews as well.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

Jimmy Smith is the Chael Sonnen of the MMA Commentating world....which translates to (P)erfection

Hey Joseph Rogan, did you take notes last night from Mr. Jimmy Smith on how to call a "fight?"

Jimmy Smith is probably the best, but if we were talking favorite it would be Bas!

I went with Jimmy Smth as well. He mixes the interviews and commentating very well and he has a better version of Mike Goldberg to work with. Pat Miletich is right up there though. Just as good as Jimmy Smith usually. Rogan would be next for me. I'm a fan of his but speaking truthfully he sits 3rd on my list. Bas is fun as well when he's matched with someone good.

Schivallo no love I see, no shocker, wonder how many people actually know who he is lol

I went with Bas. I enjoyed watching Pride with Bas. Him and Quatross were the best bar none.
Rogan is to biased, and just needs to be more human and less high.
I do like how Rogan does describe technique and what fighters should be doing.
Jimmy is good also, not the best though. Getting better though.

Hands down IMO Frank Mir....He breaks the fight down real technically if the guys are actually doing something technical...

Also Bas..

As for Jimmy Smith I think last week on Bellator he said someone won the first round in his opinion and I was thinking I dont know what fight he was watching...
