Gus Johnson, the lead mixed martial arts play-by-play man for CBS who has called many of the most-watched fights in the sport's history, is leaving the network.

Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated reports that Johnson, who's best known for calling college football and the NFL, is leaving after failing to come to terms on a new contract with the network. It's not clear whether Johnson is also out at Showtime, where he has been both a boxing and MMA play-by-play voice. Johnson will still be part of Saturday night's Manny Pacquiao vs. Shane Mosley pay-per-view broadcast, but it seems unlikely that Johnson would stick around at Showtime, which a division of the CBS Corporation, for long.

But he's going to fox. So those of us that are football fans won't be able to avoid him. :wtc:

You won't notice him either. All NFL commentators sound the same. It's the most bland, monotonous, vanilla shit on the planet. I literally stopped watching football 3 years ago because I could NOT stay awake for an entire game unless I was talking with a bunch of ppl.

Oh it's hard to avoid him, especially when every fucking football he did last year seemed to be some last second game of the century bullshit. It's easier now with Redzone though.

If you need commentators to keep you awake during a sporting event, you probably aren't a very big fan of that sport to begin with.

I would stay awake better with the tv on silent. It's that the announcers are so drab and boring that they put me to sleep. It's like history class in high school.

I was watching the Pacquiao/Mosley fight and if you give him aviator shades he'd look exactly like LL Cool J lol
