I wish Goldie the best. Seems like a genuine dude but I really dont like his commentary and don't want to hear him again.

I sure hope that that dastardly Rogan didn't get Goldie hooked on the hippie!

We're slightly off topic here but no freaking way is it going to be Miletich. That would be about as likely as Frank Shamrock.

Doesn't Goldie have an Octagon tattoo? And doesn't Zuffa own the Octagon trademark? Maybe they want him to pay some type of trademark fee and he's refusing. Phone Post

BeeTrain -  Miletich, joe and mauro Phone Post

mauro is also one of a kind. brings a unique personality to the booth, unlike anik, who does a fine job, but does nothing to distinguish himself from your average pbp man


Well if they are looking for another similar turkey brain, Mauro would be a comparable alternative for sure.

definitely either heroin or coke problem.. I remember Goldie as this kind of husky jolly fella...In this pick he looks like every other junkball roaming around East Boston.

to be honest I really dont like Goldie, it got to the point where I mute my tv and listen to music while watching the fights.
Having said that, I hope he is ok and if it is a drug problem I hope he gets clean and stays healthy.

frontrowbrian - Talk is Goldie will not be welcomed back to the UFC.

If that's true then why?  He's been with them more than 15 years and I can't see them giving him the boot without a damn good reason.

 

I could see it being Goldie's choice to want to move on after doing it for so long, but can't see them wanting to get rid of him without a really, really good reason.

 

He said health comes first.  Does he mean the job was wearing on him too much?

 


It's not a contractual thing. It's not a 'I need time off' thing but it's something he deserves the right to talk about on his own terms. That's what the media outlets are waiting for even though details of the situation are pretty well known by now. I wish him the best. <p> And it's no coincidence, Dana seems so cold towards the situation which is why there's speculation Goldie would not be welcomed back and Anik would be the guy. That could change. Dana's opinion on things change often but Goldie has to do his part, too.

Reading between the lines, I am going to guess it's an addiction to Alcohol, cocaine, or prescription pills. If he were sick, or dealing with a divorce or something like that, Dana wouldn't have answered as cold as he did last night "he's taking some time off - next question".

Regarding Dana being pissed and not allowing him back...who knows. Maybe this is something that's been going on a while, and the UFC brass had encouraged him to address it long ago, and he never did (remember the 143 incident)?

what was the 143 incident?

A Baron Von Beatdown sighting! And the "Quadros" plug is awesome.

Well, done sir. Well done, indeed.

Goldie is the shit!!!!!!

Even though he's a bit mad and says stupid shit, and repeats himself he is part of the charm of the whole ufc experience IMO!!

Anik is probably better technically as a commentator and he was probably real nervous last nite, but for me he's too serious and straight edge for me. He doesn't have that edge needed that Goldie provides.IMHO

Big up Goldie Phone Post
