Mike Goldberg filling in for Jon Anik to commentate on UFC on Fuel 9 in Sweden

Ethan Miller

While Jon Anik normally does the commentary duties for the UFC's Fuel and FX cards, Mike Goldberg will be filling in for him this April at UFC on Fuel 9 in Sweden.

For the 2nd year in a row, UFC announcer Jon Anik will miss the Sweden event. Last year he was part of the wildly popular TUF: Live series, which conflicted with UFC on Fuel 2 in Stockholm, and Mike Goldberg took the trip to Sweden instead. This year it's a more personal matter for Anik, as he explained in an interview with Fighters.com:

Traveling has been crazy. It was China in November, Australia in December, Brazil in January, England in February and we just did Japan in March, and my wife is due with our second daughter in mid April so Goldie is going to step in for me in Sweden. Just because I can’t be that far away in case she comes early.

Congratulations to Anik and his wife on their second child and hopefully all goes well over the next few weeks.

Goldberg will work alongside Kenny Florian, as he's done several times in the past since 2008. UFC on Fuel 9 is headlined by a five-round light heavyweight scrap between Alexander Gustafsson and gegard Mousasi, with Ryan Couture and Ross Pearson sharing the co-main spotlight.

Anik will resume commentary duties for the TUF 17 Finale on April 13th.
