The broadcasting teams have been announced for the latest UFC on Fuel TV event.
UFC on Fuel TV: Gustafsson vs. Silva takes place Saturday at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. It is the UFC’s first visit to Sweden, and the card will be the second to be broadcast on the Fuel TV cable network. The event is headlined by Sweden’s Alexander Gustafsson, who meats Brazilian Thiago Silva in the main event on Saturday. The co-main event is a middleweight bout between Brian Stann and Alessio Sakara.
With regular UFC “B” broadcast team play-by-play voice Jon Anik on duty in Las Vegas for Friday’s next episode of “The Ultimate Fighter LIVE” on FX, UFC “A” team play-by-play man Mike Goldberg will take the reins for both the Saturday fight card and Friday’s weigh-in event. Goldberg will be joined by Anik’s regular partner, UFC veteran and co-host of “UFC Tonight” Kenny Florian.
In addition, Karyn Bryant, the Las Vegas-based on-camera personality for “MMA H.E.A.T.,” will conduct backstage fighter interviews as part of Fuel’s coverage.
While Goldberg and Florian will head things up in Stockholm, Fuel’s pre- and post-fight shows will emanate from the network’s Los Angeles studio. Jay Glazer will host the one-hour UFC on Fuel TV weigh-in special on Friday, as well as the pre- and post-fight shows on Saturday. Glazer will be joined in studio by UFC top middleweight contender Chael Sonnen on Friday, and Sonnen and fellow UFC middleweight Mark Munoz on Saturday.
