Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has added veteran ESPN broadcast personality, Todd Grisham, to its broadcast team, according mixed martial arts (MMA) reporter, Brett Okamoto. However, he is not expected to replace long-time announcer, Mike Goldberg, who called his last event for the promotion at UFC 207 in Las Vegas, Nevada, last weekend after nearly 20 years with the company (sans the proper send off he deserved).
Grisham will debut at FOX Sports 1’s UFC Fight Night 103: “Rodriguez vs. Penn,” which takes place at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Ariz., on Jan. 15, 2017, according to MMAFighting.com. He brings with him a bevy of experience to the desk, working for ESPN as an anchor for “SportsCenter” and host for “MMA Live.” Prior to that, Grisham did play-by-play for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), as well as Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) and is currently an announcer for Glory Kickboxing.
He seems to be all in with UFC, though:
