Mike Goldberg was on the UFC’s commentary booth for the final time this past weekend, and now more line up changes for the promotion’s broadcast team has been revealed. According to MMA Fighting, the UFC has hired Todd Grisham to handle studio desk and play-by-play duties.
The report states that Grisham will make his debut at UFC Fight Night: Penn vs. Rodriguez on January 15, and isn’t necessarily a replacement for the long time commentator in Goldberg. He will be joining their broadcast line up that already includes Jon Anik, Joe Rogan, Dan Hardy, Brian Stann, and others.
Grisham, 40, has been an ESPN anchor for the past few years, but may be more known for his time as a broadcaster and personality for the WWE from 2004-2011. He has also been handling play-by-play duties with Glory kickboxing on UFC Fight Pass.
The new UFC commentator took to social media to confirm the news as well.
