This is sad to watch. Goldberg is such a nice guy and it's such a cut-throat industry.
James Machin
Alot of people will bash on Mike for not being upto standard with alot of other mma commentators or not having as vast a wealth of knowledge and occasionally making blunders whilst commentating. This is true and I won't try and argue against it. However, there was something about his style, delivery and blatant unfiltered passion that you cannot deny, he was a commentator who knew when to let (his partner) Joe take the reigns and explain for everyone listening in, he seemed to also be fond of learning from Joe and it was evident as he would also apply it in his own style. Mike and Joe compliment each other, it's like The Beatles with Ringo, he was by no means the most technically adept for the role BUT that didn't stop him from being perfect for it. There are so many commentators that are technically sound and better than Goldy but none of them will come close to the chemistry that him and Joe shared. Essay I know but that's my thoughts on the matter. The UFC were nothing but disrespectful by not acknowledging his departure, anyone that's spent 10 years plus at a company with no appreciation when they leave points to poor management, you can spout the whole business is business argument but sometimes it's just about making your employees feel valued...with all the layoffs over the past few months I can't begin to imagine how alot of UFC employees feel currently.
