Yesterday Mike Goldberg did NFL play-by-play like we knew he would

Mike Goldberg is a permanent UFC fixture. Despite saying something nonsensical, even bordering on insane, during every UFC broadcast, he will likely die Octagon-side. He is the father of such exchanges as:

Mike Goldberg: “He’s got him in some kind of strange choke I’ve never seen before!”

Joe Rogan: “That’s a rear naked choke.” 


Mike Goldberg: “You can hear the corner speaking Portuguese!”

Joe Rogan: “Uh, that’s Japanese, brother”

Mike Goldberg: “I should have known that.”

Joe Rogan: “You’re the one married to a Japanese chick.”

Mike Goldberg: “That is correct.”

He has dubbed Travis Lutter the “Michael Jordan of Jiu-Jitsu,” and when Jens “Lil’ Evil” Pulver knocked out John Lewis, he exclaimed “Little Eagle flies again!”

Despite all that, someone in the FOX executive office saw untapped talent. And on Sunday, Goldie talked my Minnesota Vikings through an embarrassing loss to the Detroit Lions. Mookie Alexander at Bloodyelbow compiled some of the Twitter reactions. 

UFC fans, enjoy that surge of hipster-esque pride, knowing you have listened to Goldie talk this way for years. It’s kind of like that weird backwards thrill I get watching the Vikings lose almost every Sunday.
