You're forgetting Jim Brown. He commentated the first few UFC's.
Yeah, he was pretty good too. He had one of the best quotes from the early UFC PPVs after the first one when he said something like "Today we learned that fighting is not what we thought it was" after Royce used grappling and submissions mostly to dispatch 3 opponents in one day. I also liked when he went "Talk to ME" after Royce submitted Dan Severn to win UFC 4. Probably the first time most people saw a leg triangle choke.
