Michael Schiavello is an Australian MMA announcer who drew one of the most amazing assignments in the history of the spoken word this weekend - a fight between Zac Chavez and Danny Mainus at Resurrection Fighting Alliance 7. On paper, it doesn't look like anything extraordinary... until you watch and listen to the commentary of the fight. You can't hear "still riding the back of Mainus" or "Mainus trying to work the clinch" and not break out in giggles like you were in pre-school and heard the word "doody" for the first time.
Somehow, Schiavello made it through the fight without breaking down in a fit of uncontrollable laughter. That takes some impressive willpower and self-discipline. I would have been gone after "Mainus getting beaten on." After the fight was over Schiavello talked about the experience on his Twitter page...
Good Lord! I almost lost it laughing!! Seriously... Mainus is bleeding! #raf7— Michael Schiavello (@SchiavelloVOICE) March 23, 2013
This is why they encourage you to pronounce Uranus as "yur-e-ness" instead of the way it's actually spelled.
If you actually watched the fight you can tell he had absolutely no clue of what he was saying. That's the reason why he could say it straight face. The other commentator didn't catch on until the 3rd round when mainus started bleeding over Chavez... He chuckled through it and then there was about 30 seconds of dead air (probably because he was busting up laughing)... yet stillMichael Schiavello didn't catch on. Completely clueless.
@JC1053 can't get over that one. Rage played that on my way home and I almost crashed laughing and crying!!
@awfulannouncing so ironic the story 'breaks' about x-pac's torn anus - Mayan sign of the apocalypse???

@awfulannouncing Mainus has a cut! Hahaha
