Ironhouse - Above all else JR knows how to speak about the performer in a way that they become more than they are which is exactly the kind of thing UFC could use to create new stars.
UFC doesn't want stars they want brand/event praise. Like a famous traveling circus they want everyone to know the name of the Circus and that they put on a great show... But they would prefer the faces of performer be unknown so that they can keep wages low.


Stars like Floyd and Manny could single handedly break the UFC apart. Phone Post 3.0

Jr is too professional and talented as a commentator to flub to hard.

Just like he said it would take some homework to understand the phrases and technics but he can certainly do better than anik Phone Post 3.0

How many fights has Goldberg called? Well over 1000. How many iconic moments has he had? None. A big fat none.

Every sport had had their big moments blown up to be something greater because of the play by play guy.

"It.... Is.....all....over" is just not good enough.

Ross would have to scale it back, but he'd be better, a lot better, then what we have right now. Phone Post

They should test drive him on a Facebook match or make him the 3rd man in the booth for an undercard. He might be just fine, hard to tell.

Would love it


JR is awesome behind the mic and would give some life to the commentary while someone like Rogan would do the technical talking

Hell go with Goldie, JR and Rogan...be amazing Phone Post

I love Jim Ross and I'm pretty sure he'd prepare himself appropriately to call MMA fights. But right now, he's behind Mauro and Goldy in my MMA PBP depth chart.

We don't need JR and his pro wrasslin shtick anywhere near UFC. I also doubt he would be able to keep up with the action.

Maybe a move to.college football on FS1 but i doubt he'd be able to keep up with that action too. Wasnt he taken off the announcing for wwf.cause he frequently got names wrong and called the "action" one step behind? Phone Post

If he went back to his 80's style, where he did pro wrestling as if it was a legitimate sport, he would be great.

BAH GAWD! That MAN has a FAMILY!!!

Would be so awesome.

Honestly the play-by-play announcer doesn't need to know techniques and stuff that well. That's what Joe is there for. The announcer just needs to say what's happening and make it exciting (and plug advertisers). I'm sure Ross could do this really well.

Actually I think the best team would be Joe and Bas with no pbp announcer, just two color commentators. I don't really have anything against Goldberg, but I just hate hearing advertisements and unnecessary talk. You don't really need a pbp announcer for MMA. Joe and Bas would be amazing. Two really funny guys that know their stuff really well.
