Mike Goldberg & Joe Rogan
I came across a pretty awesome thread on the MMA underground. The original poster (named "The Swinging Richard"), pointed out a few of Mike Goldberg`s best moments.
This isn`t a slag at all on him...he and Joe Rogan make a great team providing colour commentating for the UFC. Joe is the man...
Here are a few snippets:
"I'm sure that Goldie is a lot cooler dude than he comes across during the UFCs as it's in part a "on-air personality" that he has to play while commentating. In a three hour window of time, while watching some crazy ass fights, you're bound to say some stupid shit from time to time.
But when Goldie says something like the following in the middle of a PPV .....
UFC 49: Karo v. Nick Diaz
Rogan: "Karo is wide open"
Goldberg: "Diaz smells the opening"
UFC 67: Silva v. Lutter
Goldberg: "He's like the Michael Jordan of Brazillian Jiu Jitsu!"
Rogan: "No, he's not"
Goldberg: "Exactly right, Joe!"
UFC 76: Machida v. Nakamura
Goldberg: "And here is Nakamura ... entering the Octagon for the 1st time ... touching the fence for the first time."
Rogan: "You are running out of things to say?"
Goldberg: "Yeah. Kinda. You? You know, you could help out and chime in once in awhile ... "
UFC 102: Couture v. Nog
Goldberg: Referring to Minotauro "Unbelievable but when you look at fighter mileage this man has been in so many battles ..."
Rogan: "Yeah, mileage, he's not there as .. Randy may be 46, but Minotauro is at 56 as far as mileage"
Goldberg: "Yeah, he might be a brand new Bentley, but he's a Bentley with about 150,000 miles on it ......... still a Bentley though"
Goldberg: "You can hear the corner speaking portuguese!"
Rogan: "Uh, that's Japanese, brother"
Goldberg: "I should have known that."
Rogan: "You're the one married to a Japanese chick."
Goldberg: "That is correct."
and now...the video evidence...
Just a bit of Sunday morning humour.
Stay healthy my friends!
