I just got back from Edmonton, Alberta where I was commentating the first event of the Elaine McCarthy’s Let’s Get it on MMA series. The event took place on Friday night and was broadcast live on a very cool website called www.gofightlive.tv.

I’ve commentated at several MMA shows before but this was different right from the start. First of was the impressive fact that that the entire show was being broadcast live, which instantly put extra pressure on us commentators to perform well. There would be no second takes, no chances to go back and try things again if a mistake made. I felt nervously excited as fight time approached.

Secondly, everyone involved in this show was extremely professional and talented with a ton of experience in the fields of MMA, video production, audio and lighting and all of the other things — you wouldn’t believe how much is happening at once — that go on behind the scenes to provide us fight fans with high quality mixed martial arts entertainment. The talent that the LGIO team has really forces you to bring your best to the table.

The Ring Announcer, Ray Flores, has got some serious skills and was a really cool guy. When we were at the after party he announced my name, weight and height for me as if I was set to fight in the cage. It was awesome! Look for him to do some big things in the game.

I was very lucky to have a great partner for the commentating gig, radio personality and former MMA fighter JT McCarthy. He did the play by play while I added some colour to it all with breakdowns of technique, concepts and strategies. JT is the man! He unbelievably went through his lengthy live intro piece, lights blasting in his face, without a cue card or teleprompter and nailed the entire thing. It was crazy!

Just watching him doing his thing before, during and after the show helped me a lot. I’m really looking forward to working with him again on the next show in the series.

The fight card ended up being full of action with a few nice knockouts, a wicked neck crank submission and some close battles all taking place in front of a packed house.

The next LGIO MMA show is set for May 21st and I believe the one we were just at will air very soon on CHCH television.

I’ll post more info soon…
