I only knew you ahd to be licensed because I went to an MMA show once with a few am boxing bouts on, they had no announcer for those bouts as he wasnt licensed to do boxing and I doubt you need one to do MMA.

In USA - have a catchphrase or something unique about you (like the dreadlocked white guy).

UK - have the uncanny ability to look awkwardly at the cards, whilst shaking, stutter and look petrified whilst doing it.

David Diamante....Diamante is the future......future. (I like his nod back to the good old days of announcing fights.)

Diamante's OK, the guy at the weekend is good too, Joe Martinez. he should become the main announcer when Buffer and Lennon are gone. Lupe Contreiras is good except for the ridiculous "quien es el mas macho" thing that he does.

"From the four corners of the globe to the four corner of this ring!"

Cheesy as ****.

Jimmy Lennon Jr all the way. Gone off Buffer.

What happened to the black guy, think he used to be a pro - normally did Maloney's cards...

Yeah that's it... admittedly abit corny, but its catchy IMO.

Does Burdis even have a catchphrase? If he has i cant say its memorable.

Follow ***** about for a week or so with camera in hand ..

Wait until ***** does something unsavoury ( should not take too long ) and take pictures.

Show pictures to ***** a day or two later ( hopefully he will have finished whatever unsavoury thing he was doing by then )

Get job off ***** ..

Take copies of pictures and hide in different places.
