    I swear I was thinking about that the other day. But the last thing the WWE needs is another part time heel.

    Stephan Bonnar got popped twice for 'roids right? Owned up to it both times. Was a far more insightful commentator--keeping it more about the fighters and less about himself--and still lost his commenting side job with the company.

    Is that a correct statement?
    fixed.

The first time it was because he was teased as a kid for having small balls and never reaching puberty now he claims he was trying to get his wife pregnant. I think he's full of shit with both excuses.
    The board needs to be clear on this: chael's retirement doesn't open the door to posts like this. Nobody would want to read it about Fedor, or Hughes, or Georges or Anderson/anyone who will probably retire in the near future...

    Objective criticism is fine, as long as it's supported in the text with discussion points.

    This wasn't made explicitly clear before, so I'm not responding aggressively, but that's the last sonnen bashing post that will be tolerated.

    I doubt Sonnen loses his commentating job. He is way more valuable to Fox as a network than he is to the UFC. Even though it is a UFC show I would be willing to be Fox has some control. To casual fan / average viewer Sonnen bring excitement. He is a hype man. While no one on here is going to believe the BS he is serving up, it is passable enough to the casual fan who barely keeps up with things. Sonnen is a hype man who can spin things fairly well to those who are not really invested or paying attention

    You have to know what you don't know.

    I live in the UK and get UFC on BT Sports and formally ESPN.

    One time the commentating was broken and we still had perfect sound minus Rogan and Goldberg, it was the best 3 fights I have ever watched. You could hear the corners giving instructions, the sound of every clean punch and kick landing and fighters wincing when submission attempts occurred. Think it was UFC 80 in Newcastle.

    I was wondering for those who order PPV, do you have this option? Would be brilliant to watch like this IMO!
