    Hilarious that Goldberg is considered the play-by-play guy when all he adds are his barrage of idioms and random facts.

    What about Randy? lol. Seriously though, I'd love to see Bas to commentary in the UFC. Hell, even Mauro Ronallo would be ok.

    And he has a fight coming up with Josh Barnett. Homie better worry about that more than talking on the tube.

    Yeh, I'd like to hear the perspective of someone more knowledgable on this than myself. My understanding is that Goldie is technically the play-by-play guy. I think it's because he calls what's happening while Rogan talks about the why's and what he thinks the fighter is working towards or going to do next.

    So Goldie waits for someone to be choked out by kimura before calling it, whereas Rogan might note that the fighter is or should be thinking about choke by kimura when they get into a position. But it feels like the two of them muddy that delineation quite a bit.
