So we've reached the point where every UFC video preview sounds like a Sam Kinison skit.
I'm not sure how else to describe the steady stream of shrieking from cageside commentators Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan, who fall victim to the ZUFFA production crew, a team of cheerleaders who are convinced the only way to hype an event is to have everyone screaming each piece of dialog.
My ears hurt.
Moving past the sensory assault, we have a pretty decent fight card coming up on April 11. True, it's on a Fight Pass ... on Friday when most viewers are at work or school ... in Abu Dhabi ... but hey, this is the price we have to pay as mixed martial arts (MMA) fans for WORLD DOMINATION.
