Bellator MMA is no stranger to scooping up former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) all stars, though admittedly, most of them have been mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters.
Not this time.
Bellator president Scott Coker today announced that former UFC play-by-play man Mike Goldberg will join the Spike TV broadcast team for Bellator 180, alongside veteran commentator Mauro Ranallo, no stranger to PRIDE FC fans.
“Mike Goldberg and Mauro Ranallo are two of the best in our business and I couldn’t be happier about them joining the Bellator family,” Coker said. “In addition to June 24, we look forward to working together to make future Spike broadcasts even more exciting for our fans as we add further depth to an already-exceptional broadcast team.”
Goldberg was released by UFC last January while Ranallo — most recently employed by WWE as a pro wrestling announcer — parted ways with Vince McMahon and Co. just last month.
Bellator did some spring cleaning of its own, recently saying goodbye to Sean Grande.
