The King of Crase
Obviously, personal preference will come into play with such an on top personality as Rogan, and I agree that Rogan's judgemental attitude towards certain fighters (and referees) has irritated me at times

Calling the fight straight down the middle is cool and I have no problem if that's how it's to be done, however; doing it in a monotone and virtually disinterested way is not the way to do it.
Like I say; Anik is a very good sports commentator, I just feel he's better suited to being an Anchor on sport review shows (as he did with MMA Live)
I get the impression that Fox think Goldie and (though, mostly) Rogan could be a little intimidating for new fans; Rogan talking about Omoplatas from half guard and who placed where in the ADCC could sound like French to someone new to the sport, where Anik's straight faced and non committal approach is familiar to your common or garden sports watchers and doesn't use confusing terminology. In that respect I can understand the use of him, but I get the feeling Fox are slowly trying to strangle Rogan and Goldie out all together. That I ain't down with.
Which ever way you look at it its still GAY
