"Fueling the American stereotype of being completely ignorant about other countries, the US commentator announced, 'Here tonight in attendance, Jonah Lomu of the All Blacks, one of the greatest Australian Rules Football players of all time.' Jonah Lomu is, of course, not one of our greatest AFL players, but rather one of the world's greatest Rugby union players. You know, the sport that the All Blacks compete in. Not only did the commentator get that wrong, but he also pronounced Lomu's last name wrong as well, calling him, 'Jonah La-boo.'"
Whoops! Sounds like somebody didn't do their homework. Either that, or Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) play-by-play man Mike Goldberg botched his lines. Either way, news.com.au (via Bloody Elbow) is taking Goldy to task for his work at the UFC Fight Night 43 event last Saturday (June 28, 2014) inside the Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand (results here). Goldberg was trying to drop some knowledge for the promotion's Fight Pass subscribers, but instead just came off looking like an ignorant American. Hey New Zealand, lighten up!
