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.

IMO there's a fine line between popularizing the sport by bringing in people like Mayweather and Ross...and turning the sport into a freak show. The UFC has to be careful about de-legitimizing it's product/brand.

I would pass on JR.

This is the same company that brought in Brock Lesnar and James Toney to fight...you are worried about an experienced and widely respected commentator de-legitimize the sport?

Lesnar was a success but it could have turned out ugly. Phone Post

jct71 - Mir is articulate? Lol. I'm sure JR knows the difference between a sport and wrasslin.

Mir was fantastic when he was calling the WEC (unless Miguel Torres was in the cage).

Fantastic ? eh . Articulate ? barely

I know where you are coming from but at the end of the day the guy is a commentator. If he were to call college football games, which he has done in the past at the NFL level and may do again, it wouldn't be a cause to discredit the sport of football so MMA should be no different. Phone Post

How about this....

 

You take Jim Ross and Chael Sonnen and have them commentate TUF fights.

JustPeed - 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
