Live Audio Wrestling reviews UFC 2' and Brian Kilmeade's commentating

Brian Kilmeade, co-host of Fox and Friends and best known to PunditFight readers for shootfighting with Janeane Garofalo in an awkward interview in the lead up to the Iraq War.

Something people may not be aware of is that Brian Kilmeade once commentated for the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) in its very early days. A time when UFC had yet to institute different weight classes and was largely considered a barbaric bloodsport rather than the lucrative enterprise it is today.

Live Audio Wrestling's John Pollock and Wai Ting reviewed and recapped 'UFC 2 (1994)' making particular mention of Kilmeade's lackluster commentating abilities.

Below are selected excerpts of the UFC 2 Review and Kilmeade's role in it
JOHN POLLOCK: We have our play-by-play announcer and I use that term ever so lightly, Brian Kilmeade - what he brought to this broadcast Wai I will ask throughout this event...

This was the Ben Perry [other co-commentator] Show because he was explaining what a "mount" was, what "Jiu Jitsu" is, what an "arm bar" is. Kilmeade had no idea, NO IDEA what was happening.
