After waxing poetic regards Poirier during his entrance, he then completely does a 180 during the fight. His commentary was incredibly one-sided and biased. After round 2, I just muted it.

Him and the Fox guy commentated the entire fight through Gaethje's eyes. Basically, having him still up, even after the point deduction. What were they doing?? Thankfully, Cruz piped in a few times to grant Poirier some credit, but they were just 1-liners like "Great uppercut by Poirier" - then it was back to the other 2 quickly admiring only Gaethie.

I saw a completely different fight where Poirier was scoring constantly. Yes, he was taking damage to the leg, but we was way up in the scoring and winning the fight. I was 100% confident he would survive the leg and get a KO or decision.

How did you guys feel about the commentary?

I'm sure it's not easy to take away their natural reactions to fights being fighters themselves. It's easy to get lost in one person's abilities. Pretty much everyone I could hear talking about the main event were all talking about Justin, whether it was good or bad;

Damn he's tough

Those leg kicks

Eye pokes

DC is good but he's just too overwhelming, saying that, Dom is great on mic but he's too soft spoken. They need to pump his mic up or something cause his mma knowledge is brilliant

I didn't find the commentary that annoying really. The fight was so entertaining, I barely remember what they said. They did point out that both guys were fighting their asses off and that Gaethje did seem to be landing the more damaging strikes. Which was 100% true, till the end. Also they did not have Gaethje up after the point deduction. A one point deduction from the winning fighter puts them both at 9-9, which the commentary pointed out.

I submit your charge lacks the necessary evidence OP, and you owe the Fox 9 crew an apology of appropriate contrition.

i dont think dom is soft spoken, i think he speaks less because he hates the people around him because theyre reactionary dumbasses and not really analyzing the fight. as much as dc knows about wrestling and as great a champion he is in MMA he is not a gameplanner and has show very little in the booth that would denote that he knows what a fighters thinking or there gameplan will be. he just kind of stream of consciousness babbles. Dom & Joe > DC.

DC works best with anik, even though its not always the best commentary its the only way to balence DCs jargen is to put him in there with someone who is literally only there to plug ads. Putting him in there with people to 'discuss' mma just short circuits him.

One of them said that repeatedly.

The only thing Gaethje was landing was eye pokes and leg grenades. Dustin wasn't losing at any point imo. He was clearly hurt but he was never losing

I wholeheartedly agree w op. As I was watching the fight I was wondering if they were commenting on the same fight I was watching. Poirier won every round w the third being a wash cause of the point deduction

Dom is great on commentary but I just find DC to much sometimes like I preferred the shows with DC and Anik.

It was DC that said it. He said they were the best kicks in the history of MMA. I guess he doesn’t watch any fights with Muay Thai-style fighters lol.

If you complain about any ufc commentator your life must be incredibly boring lol. I swear some people just bitch about things because theyre bored.

I watched it with the sound off and had every losing fighter winning. Even the stoppages.

Fake-answer. DC directly said that Poirier was still behind even AFTER the point deduction, which was just crazy making.

Both you and Daniel Cormier dont know what the hell you talking about.
