Jeremy : (29 September 2018 - 11:29 PM) nd check in time to time. Unrelated... I went to ROH Death Before Dishonor last night. I should make a post (and I will at some point). Haven't watched ROH weekly TV ever, and I don't follow closely anything but New Japan and somewhat NXT. Had an outstanding time though!

KingOfMyWorld : (20 September 2018 - 07:24 AM) We fought the spambots for a while, they just became more and more numerous, it was like deleting their shit told them somebody was here to see their shit and they sent more bots...
Jeff : (19 September 2018 - 08:07 AM) It's possible but I never check in anymore becuase nothing's popping. The board itself would have to be cleaned up big time.

KingOfMyWorld : (19 August 2018 - 01:47 AM) The internet is just weird without these boards... Facebook and the like just aren't the same...

Mike Goldberg leaving UFC...

Longtime UFC play-by-play announcer Mike Goldberg will be leaving the promotion after UFC 207.
 
It was originally announced by Entimports and later confirmed by Luke Thomas that Mike Goldberg and the UFC will be parting ways following Friday’s event. The UFC has yet to make an official announcement on the matter. We will update as soon as we have more information.
 
Goldberg began working for the UFC in 1997. His skills were so desired that the WWE tried to get sign him up to work for their RAW television program. He has done play-by-play for the Detroit Red Wings, Minnesota Wild, and ESPN2.
 
Goldberg’s NFL debut was October 12, 2014. His error-filled NFL stint lasted exactly one game. He was also a Chicago Bulls sideline reporter during the Jordan years. He also has extensive collegiate basketball and football experience.
 
Given his resume, it’s safe to assume that Goldberg will land somewhere rather quickly. He’s probably negotiating several offers right now.
 
As for what the UFC will do without their staple commentator, it can be assumed that Goldberg will be replaced in the interim by Jon Anik, who handles FOX Sports 1 cards. Rumors have been circulating that the new ownership is looking for a more vanilla commentator like Jim Rome or Mario Lopez, but that is not confirmed.
 
One of the most experienced MMA play-by-play announcers, Mauro Ranallo, is currently serving as an announcer for WWE and will likely not be considered a candidate. Michael Schiavello also has loads of experience in the play-by-play role and has that seat in many promotions at the moment. Having “The Voice” become the voice of the UFC would please many hardcore fans.
 
For now, let’s all enjoy the classic “Here we go!” and “It is all over!” calls on Friday, because it is the last time we’ll hear them.
 
 

 

 

Anybody think WWE will make a play for him again? I remember way back when WWE tried to hire him and asked him to no-show the UFC event and show up unannounced on Monday.

Job did go to a former WWE announcer, but not JR...

 

Former WWE announcer turned ESPN broadcaster Todd Grisham will debut for The Ultimate Fighting Championship with the next UFC Fight Night broadcast on FOX Sports 1.
 
Grisham's name has been bouncing around as a potential broadcaster for the MMA flagship since Mike Goldberg departed the company last weekend (and on a side note, it was a pretty sad move that UFC didn't allow Goldberg to give any farewell comments).
 
Grisham, 40, worked for WWE from 2004-2011 in different roles, including being the lead announcer for the WWE Smackdown, WWE NXT, Sunday Night Heat and the WWE version of ECW.  He left the company for ESPN in 2011, where he has hosted Friday Night Fights and worked as a Sportcenter anchor.
 
Grisham changed his Twitter handle today to @GrishamMMA.
