I don’t take baseball seriously, I wouldn’t expect them to take MMA seriously. 😛 Log in to Reply RearNakedSmoke September 4, 2011 Savage nailed it. This whole “mainstream” thing still doesn’t sit well with me. Log in to Reply T'Challa September 4, 2011 @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.. Log in to Reply cc98 September 4, 2011 weird Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick September 4, 2011 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 shit.They just laughed a bit at Jones’ name and looked even annoyed to announce UFC Log in to Reply pstritt September 4, 2011 I’m proud of them so ya Log in to Reply sooooopernate September 4, 2011 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 Log in to Reply baller September 4, 2011 u fools up there, wats wroung with the announcement? Log in to Reply Beast w/ 8 Limbs September 4, 2011 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. Log in to Reply sooooopernate September 4, 2011 And actually, upon listening to it for a second time, I think you guys are overly sensitive, that announcement seems perfectly fine to me. Log in to Reply Dr steel September 4, 2011 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!! Log in to Reply jerome September 5, 2011 Idk, it just seemed unprofessional to me. Just do your job instead of giggling like little girls. Old bastards. Log in to Reply jeff_figmb September 5, 2011 well said Savage… These guys are idiots! They have no clue Log in to Reply casyboy September 5, 2011 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! Log in to Reply not anonymous September 5, 2011 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”. Log in to Reply KungFuLowKick September 5, 2011 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 😛 Log in to Reply Lodovik September 5, 2011 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. Log in to Reply wcoastassassin September 5, 2011 F$ck baseball Log in to Reply PitFighterZ September 5, 2011 … and nooooow, back to some grownup asses hitting a little ball with a stick. Log in to Reply willienugget September 5, 2011 I understand many of you don’t watch baseball, but that’s about all you ever get out of these two. This is good.
