Its a upgrade vs what they have at the moment to work with Joe Rogan but Bellator got the upper hand in signing McCarthy.

That's great news. I always enjoyed him whenever I watched Bellator.

Can't really say that for sure until we hear him call some fights.

 

He definitely has the knowledge to do well in the job, but that's still not a guarantee he'll be a good fit.

True.... Todd Grisham have all that and he still sucks at calling MMA.

Yeah I meant from a impact perspective....from a experience perspective Jimmy is already a proven commodity....but potentially McCarthy has a higher ceiling as of today.

He is one of the best commentators in UFC.

 

Schools Rogan 24/7 

 

 

cruz?  **** that the dude is a **** bag, boring as hell, a 'know it all' always trying to get one up on joe, and he has a bad voice.

 

u dont hire someone whos unexciting and has a bad voice to commentate your event.   thats just setting yourself up for disappointment. kind of like hiring someone with a 3 inch tallywhacker to star in your upcoming p*rno film.

Yeah either Cruz or Florian are toast....ANik is safe I think since hes play by play and Feilder I think hes safe since hes low teir.

Naw i rather listen to someone that know what they are talking about than listen to Rogan go on and on and on about leg kicks and calling action wrong usually 85% the fight.

 

 

I'm sure it will come down to if UFC sign back with Fox or not on who will stay in commentary role and who won't. Most the athletes are doin so because the FOX deal but new network may want to go a different path from the booth.

Cruz and Smith is the new dream team for announcing.

I like rogan and love smith. Cruz to me is nauseating although he knows the game as through and through as anyone... announcing a fast moving sport takes a degree of genius if you are good, to be able to keep up and communicate what’s happening accurately. I’m not sure how big John will translate what he does into the booth. I give all these guys lots of credit though.

I'm looking forward to them announcing Luke Rockhold as champion again next month.

The only time those words will be said will with "former" in front of it before Whittaker picks him apart then brutalizes him.

They are both color commentators...not sure they will be commentating together.

he's a great commentator but shouldn't be partnered up with Joe Rogan, they're identical in there roles and mannerisms

 

I feel like this was a move to chip away at Bellagoats greatness TBH

Dominick Cruz is a goddamn fighting genius.

Agreed, but that doesn't make him a good announcer. 1st, the fans have to like the guy and he is, imho, very unlikable.

I don't have any problem with him. He's plenty likable in my eyes.

Great news, Jimmy Smith is the best commentator in mma.

 

 

No secret there been rumors of Rogan leaving the UFC for a while. I guess the UFC found his replacement and now it makes perfect sense why Bellator is pursuing Big John.

Bellator got the upper hand by letting one of the best commentators in the industry walk and replacing him with a referee?

Its funny because many people were calling Jimmy a wannabe Rogan in a Bellator thread a few months ago and a lot online but now people are kissing his **** everywhere.

At least Jimmy Smith travels unlike Rogan so might do the big fight cards abroad so we don't get trash for them. I love hardy but I can't deal with his commentary.

As of today McCarthy has a potential higher ceiling. Lets see how he does.
