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.



No love for Schiavallo because he doesnt know what he's talking about half the time, might as well pay Lennox Lewis to commentate MMA.

Yeah, quite the comparison there!
One guy who is boring as hell to listen to and a guy who is the most entertaining!
Good one!

Schiavallo is funny but his style shouldn't be used at the highest level. What I mean by that is jokes about guys taking shots to the face like Jenna Haze is just something you can't say on FOX. Funny as it may be.

I voted for Rogan.

Some people don't care for him but I get pissed when I'm at a bar watching UFC PPV's and can't hear the commentator's.
When I order from home Rogan always seems to be 10 seconds ahead of the fight and has a lot of knowledge when it comes to the fighters and their styles.

I picked Rogan and I know a lot of other hard cores are freaking out but let me explain:
I watch most of my MMA alone, so I judge them on if they were in my living room with me would their talking bug me. Smith's voice irritates a bit, but the dude is good....a lack of emotion? The Voice, hillarious but as with Bas bro; I am trying to watch a fight! Don't get me all cracked up with your wierd accent and ridiculous punch lines! Militich is just as biased as Rogan but dude seems to be less knowledgeable? Dont know how but he hust doesnt seem as smart.

Frank Mir, a great BJJ practitioner, also a fighter and a former champion at that, he breaks a fight down from a professional perspective and helps you get inside the minds of the competitors. You may not like him but he's a great commentator and will probably be a great coach when he's done fighting.

I love me some Rogan, but no one is more exciting to listen to than Michael Schiavello. Also, we just had him on the podcast today

He chatted with Chris and I for 45 minutes, so why don't you listen in and hear what he had to say!!!

I kinda enjoy when Kenny Florian calls fights. But as far as regular commentators, gotta go with Rogan. His voce doesn't irritate me
