beat me to it, Savage!

patronizing fools

Freaklegion Says, in 9-4-2011 at 13:32:30 from    

Who cares…. I don’t take baseball seriously, I wouldn’t expect them to take MMA seriously. :P

Savage nailed it. This whole “mainstream” thing still doesn’t sit well with me.

@Savage, I agree, you can hear the sarcasm in the second guys’ voice.. his attitude makes it seem like it’s a freak show or pro wrestling, with him subtly mocking the “Bones” nickname..

Dana needs to take care of this..

They look so pumped for the fight i bet they cant wait…Come on at least when Goldie announces crappy games or movies on Live free events he faked being interested by what they sell.These guys didnt sell s***.They just laughed a bit at Jones’ name and looked even annoyed to announce UFC

pstritt Says, in 9-4-2011 at 16:27:47 from    

I’m proud of them so ya

Well what do you guys expect? MMA is so foreign to the mainstream world, and I’m sure these ball announcers have no idea what they’re talking about. Give it some time, a year from now it’ll seem just like any other sport that they promote mid-broadcast. The important thing is that they’re getting some cross-sectional interest brewing. Idk about you, but if I still had tv (i just use my computer) I would be pleasantly surprised by a free championship fight that I previously had no idea about, despite the lackluster tone of the announcers. This sport is about to get HUGE

u fools up there, wats wroung with the announcement?

Beast w/ 8 Limbs Says, in 9-4-2011 at 18:19:09 from    

That’s ridiculous. There’s an ex boxer they used to call bones as well. Cant recall his actual name. Now rampage, that’s a cheesy f’ing moniker and really only serves as fodder for these old jaded charlatans who never here of pitbulls and ‘muscle sharks’ in the refined sport of boxing. geezers…he’ll be dead by the time mma is actually mainstream anyway.

sooooopernate Says, in 9-4-2011 at 19:23:06 from    

And actually, upon listening to it for a second time, I think you guys are overly sensitive, that announcement seems perfectly fine to me.

Dr steel Says, in 9-4-2011 at 20:01:14 from    

When they pull HUGE ratings that should shut the nay sayers up..what is so wrong with a freaking HW title fight for free?? I love it .. Sure it will take some getting used to but damm I think this will be the start of a buetifull 4 way of violence Fans, fighters, FOX, and the UFC

Is this not what we all wanted ? MMA in the mainstream? All of you guys bitch about fighter pay, and ligitimacy of the sport but when it is achieved some of us start in with the “OHHH NOO its not cool any more” bullshit WTF. Sit down shut up and enjoy a free HW title fight god damn you!!

jerome Says, in 9-5-2011 at 00:13:54 from    

Idk, it just seemed unprofessional to me. Just do your job instead of giggling like little girls. Old bastards.

jeff_figmb Says, in 9-5-2011 at 00:33:31 from    

well said Savage… These guys are idiots! They have no clue

casyboy Says, in 9-5-2011 at 00:53:27 from    

atleast he said velasquez right! that bones plug isnt going to pull one payperveiw, these guys cant wait! it did make the baseball game more exciting!

not anonymous Says, in 9-5-2011 at 12:46:36 from    

Snickering from announcers of a “sport” where you can eat sunflower seeds, chew gum and tobacco, and never run more than 10 seconds at a time. People should go back to calling in it “the great American pass-time”.

KungFuLowKick Says, in 9-5-2011 at 13:24:19 from    

They might didnt even noticed they’re bored and sarcastic voice tone.I mean who of you guys could comment a 10 hours baseball game where fat slow guys hit a ball each 10 minutes.HAHA

i dont expect them to like MMA when they love a facking boring and lazy sport but atleast they should do their job correctly, announce the product they are supposed to sell(UFC free fight at their network),and not to laugh at it or be sarcastic.If UFC commentators would talk about a product this way they would probably lose their job or get really talked seriously to by their bosses.If they keep acting like that it wont be hard for their bosses to find 2 new guys who arent old retarded baseball commentators.

Sorry if you like baseball and you were offended,i dont have anything against you.I watch the weather channel to fall asleep you guys watch baseball its cool with me :P

Lodovik Says, in 9-5-2011 at 13:49:13 from    

I am not from US. Is baseball actually popular as a TV sport? I mean, I know people go to games to drink beer and talk about other sports, but do they watch it on TV as well? I tried once and fell asleep. If any of the people watching baseball on TV will see dos Santos vs Velasques, they will never return to baseball again.

F$ck baseball

PitFighterZ Says, in 9-5-2011 at 18:41:32 from    

… and nooooow, back to some grownup asses hitting a little ball with a stick.

willienugget Says, in 9-5-2011 at 18:58:16 from    

I understand many of you don’t watch baseball, but that’s about all you ever get out of these two. This is good.
