I'm a big fan of Rogan but this will be a nice change. I like Stann on the mic.

I wonder when someone other than Bruce Buffer will introduce

I think we'll have quite a wait for that. Bruce Buffer is an arrogant, diligent extrovert powered by the world's smallest nuclear reactor. I see him doing this for at least another 10 years - or he'll have a disastrous public meltdown and explode, taking out 4 city blocks in the process.

On the topic of the OP, I like Joe Rogan and all, I think he's a complementary partner for Goldberg, but even I get tired of his catchphrases.

--Wrestlers are the best athletes to transition to MMA because of work ethic
--*Something* has to be done about accidental groin strikes - compression shorts, etc.
--Jab is the most underrated strike in MMA

It's all solid info that neophytes should hear, but man. I think Stann's got potential somewhere in the commentator/analyst field. While I think Stann will do just fine, my gut impression is that he's a little too nice to be a compelling color guy. I think he's superb in the studio with a brash, outspoken partner like Chael Sonnen. Stann is smart, experienced, and offers a striker's perspective on the sport. Plus, and if we're really getting into all the media details here, he's too handsome to not be seen on camera for most of his time on the mic.

To me this is yet another reason why Dana White needs to make up with Pat Miletich, who should already not only be in the UFC Hall of Fame but could also capably fill in as a color commentator. But I digress.

I like it. Rogan says some things during a fight and I'm wondering at the time if he is watching the same fight as I am. Stann is great at the Mic.

I'd be a lot happier with a Stann and Rogan team.

Stann will be great

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.

lol what the fuck people? id rather have rogan and stann than goldberg and anyone.

I may be in the minority but I don't really like former fighters calling fights unless they've been retired long enough that they have no personal relationships or training history with any of the fighters whose fights they are calling.

Very few of them can hide their obvious biases, and I think the main voice calling a fight should be as impartial as possible.

I'll definitely give Stann a chance, but I hope he's a lot better than fighters like Florian and Mir, who I think are 2 of the worst commentators the UFC has ever used.

but even Rogan has his bias for Bravo students.

I think I'd rather have Joe in the booth just bc he has a very good understanding of BJJ and I'm not sure if Stann understands some of the subtleties of the more complex moves.

I imagine someone hitting a calf slicer or reverse triangle in Brazil and hearing nothing but crickets from Stann and Goldberg.

Any move that doesn't involve getting rid of Mike Goldberg is a terrible decision. That guy is embarrassingly bad at what he does.

Why do you think Buffer is arrogant? I've always thought so too but other than my gut feeling I've seen no proof. Not trying to be a jerk I'm just curious.

Joe Rogan has P4P best reactions to the unexpected, his voice is perfect for the job. Brian in my opinion just doesn't have that flavor just vanilla like Goldie.


I would actually like Brian and Kenny to tag up.

Joe Rogan > all when it comes to MMA commentating.

I have nothing against Stann, but I'd rather be listening to Rogan.
