    They have to do that for the casual fans.

    Saying "We got this one fighter who is pretty good fighting this other dude who isn't too bad." just isn't going to garner interest with casual fans. They have to sell the fight.

    The more hardcore fans knows who's who and watch the fights because they like the sport. Fights don't really need to be hyped or sold to the more hardcore fan base.

    I'd say I'm a "casual fan", but hearing the same phrase every time is just irritating, can't they come up with something else >.<

    It would be nice if they could but it's just easier to say "One of the best if not the best."
    Just an easy way to sell the fight.

    I've nothing with saying one of the best stuff, hell, generic phrasing and stuff. It's the pound for pound thing.

    Just an easy way to say someone is really skilled and saying it like that sells it better.

    A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.

    Oh, it's storming outside!

    The lightning is frequent,

    it superheats the air

    causing an immense shockwave

    that thunders through the heavens,

    powerfully echoing in the heart,

    ah! I love the storm,

    for its brilliant flashes

    preclude such a nice

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!
