...more than anything?
For me its either
"Welcome to the Sonnen Era, ladies and gentlemen." - Joe Rogan
or
"And NEW U. F. C. LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WOOOOORRRLLLLD!!! CHAELLLLLL SOOOOONNNNEEENNN!!" - Bruce Buffer

I just once want to hear an football announcer say what daniel tosh wants to hear them say: "God black people are fast! All of them, they're fast" i would be so hard. That'll never happen though, so I guess my next thing I want to hear coming from a UFC commentator, whether it be Anik, Rogan, Florian, Goldberg or any other fill in they frequently use, is "and joining us hear at the table is permanent addition to our commentating team, Bas Rutten". Listening to Rutten commenting on fights is a mixture of being very knowledgeable about the positions and what's going on, and being downright hilarious. But again, sadly, that is extremely unlikely to happen.

I know their records are showed
But I would like them to acknowledge their UFC record as well. Maybe top ten rank too.

I liked it when an active roster fighter was in there, especially when that fighter was going to fight the winner of the fight they were commentating on.

I'd love a 3rd man in from the beginning of the card who has a relevancy in the main or co-main event.

Say for example
UFC 165 - Cruz, Faber or Teixera
UFC FN - Jones, Gustaffson or Mighty Mouse
UFC 164 - TJ Grant
UFC FN - Matt Brown or Rory MacDonald
UFC FN - Barao, Cruz. Rashad, Davis.

It would be really good promotion and we'd get to know more about the fighters themselves and how they see/call a fight. I mean who the hell knows who TJ Grant is... It'd be some promotion if they at least had him talking about the fight during Bendo/Pettis. Also a few of the guys would have some great stories to tell during the lay and pray fights.

Also I agree with Shawn, drop Anik and KenFlo.

BJ Penn winning against Frankie would be epic, it would sound more like this though:
"REFEREE BLAH BLAH has called a stop to this contest at 2 minutes, 48 seconds of the very first round, for the winner by Submission due to a rear naked choke.....
THAAAAA PRAHHHH DEEE GEEE! BEEEE JAYY!!! PENNNNN!!!!"
