Might take a bit of heat for this but I'd much rather have Goldberg.Anik is a bore on commentary and in a way feels like he has a lack of passion for the sport.

I like Anik but it seems more like a job rather than a passion. With all Goldberg's shortcomings, It seems (to me at least) that he has a genuine passion for the sport

I've said it a million times, Anik is good taped (see: Old MMA LIVE on ESPN) but live he just isn't that good. I've also said it a million times, the UFC needs Todd Harris on the commentary.

I'd love to see them pair up Joe Rogan and the Voice. I think they would jive well together. I also thought Pat Millitich (spell check) was awesome and incredibly knowledgable. Big fan of Bas too but he can sometimes be too absorbed in the fight to talk.

Weird, I read that Bas Rutten was in for Goldie the other day, but I guess his account was hacked. But then he actually pulls out.

Rogan and Bas would be incredible

I think of him as a poor man's Bob Costas, would much rather have ass biting, cross dressing Marv Albert anyday

Im always excited about different combinations of commentators. It'll sure make the night more interesting. But if someone throws a teep kick I'll be thinking of Goldberg.

Anyone except Goldberg. The guy's been doing this how long and still comes off like he doesn't know what he's talking about half the time?

Not a fan of Goldberg, but even less of a fan of Anik. You have the expertise in Rogan and it needs a balance. Just like in the Florian/Anik team, Goldberg/Rogan play off one another with one sounding a hell of a lot more knowledgable than the other. Submission attempts is where that shines. As awesome as Bas and Rogan would be, I actually think Harris would be a good balance to Rogan.

I also thought it was pretty suspicious when Dana said, "I don't know when he'll be back." Somethings up
