Fatt Serra is pretty cool and he corners the best fighter in MMA today so that's a plus.

Haven't seen enough of Ellen to formulate an opinion on his broadcast skillz.

They should get Big Country in there. He's always saying some funny/weird ****.

Serra sounds like somebody I expect to see on an episode of Jersey Shore, just a little more ****y.

 

And does this mean Ellenberger retired from fighting then?

Chael was still fighting when he was working for FOX so Ellen might be trying to do the same.

I doubt it. Plenty of guys are doing the analyst gig and still fighting. DC and Melendez are two examples.

Ellenburger should've packed it in after being KO'd by Kampman.

Why?

 

There are many guys of lesser quality still fighting in the UFC.

I just always thought of him as a possible title contender. But after that loss I just felt like there was no way he was ever gonna get there. And I don't enjoy seeing him getting knocked out/performing in awful fights (the Rory one).

They said when Chael left that they'd be trying out a bunch of different guys to figure out who could best replace him, so this doesn't mean that either of them, or anyone else you've seen recently, will be around long term.

They should give Rockhold a shot if he has time. I think that he would be decent at it with a little practice.

I think Ellenberger is retiring due to too many concussions.

And they continue to give Frank Mir the shaft. Arguably the most eloquent of fighters and certainly one of the most knowledgable with regards to pure technique.

 

I mean, Ellenberger?! Really? Was Bigfoot not available or something?

Replace Ellenberger with Tank Abbott. That includes inside the octagon.

Tank would make for an entertaining analyst.  However, even "mighty mouse" could knock him out inside the octagon at this point.

Got to agree. His voice sounds weird to me. Hopefully he does well.

That's not saying much Mighty Mouse would destroy most of the UFC HW's.
