Jimmy Smith is is much better MMA commentator than Bas now... Bas is shell of his former self. But Bas is still better than Goldie

But you enjoy the Sonnen interviews right?  They are 120% worse.

Awesome.  Voted up.  I had a littel grin when I saw that last night.  Overall I was so glad to watch some fights again on Spike.  They do a great job with MMA and have a looseness about them.  Sure the program had kinks but they will work them out.  My only complaint would be that I don't dig Jimmy at all.  I can't even say what it is exactly but I'd say he is the only major complaint I have.  Lets see Bas take that spot!
