I think he's just naturally a zany dude. Have you seen the Cartoon Network commercials he did? He's just really energetic and is comfortable being himself.
I'm surprised he doesn't come up more often in GOAT conversations. I don't necessarily believe that he is, but I think a case could be made. Not to mention his contributions in commentating and his commercials/video tutorials etc bringing MMA to a more mainstream audience. Bas is fantastic for the sport, definitely a favorite of mine.

He's mimicking the old "Transformers" cartoon that I'm guessing a good % of MMA fans are too young to remember :)

Very good assessment, Bas is one of the few that is the real deal outside the sport, meaning he's a seriously bad dude, tough as they come, the type of guy you want next to you when the shit hits the fan real life. When the dust settles he would be one of the last ones standing, he is very worthy to be included in any GOAT discussion, would love to see him just once with Rogan behind the mic, it would be epic.

I like Bas, but he generally doesn't really add a lot of insight as a commentator, and not because he isn't capable (obviously).

It's just his style.

He likes to get goofy, like the Transformers thing, which probably sounds like gibberish to anyone who didn't grow up in the 1980's. Also, Three Amigos, Scarface, etc.

In terms of technique, he can bring the attention to himself instead of the action: "Oh yeah, that punch works, I knocked a guy out in a kickboxing match in Holland in 1990 with it." But, no real detail.

I'm not doubting him, mind you. Also, he can get away with it a lot of the time because he has a certain charm, unlike, say, Ricco Rodriguez.

He's fun as a commentator, but to me he's a lot more fun to listen to in an interview setting, where they just wind him up and let him rip. His Open Mat Radio interview was classic.
