UFC adds Todd Grisham to its television broadcast team

There are a bevy of changes planned in the world of mixed martial arts for 2017. There are the new unified rules, new weight divisions being added to the UFC, and some new additions to the broadcast table for the UFC as well. It was announced last month that Mike Goldberg would be stepping away from his duties as play-by-play announcer for the UFC and speculation ran wild as to who would replace him.

Reports have been circulating today that the UFC has signed veteran broadcaster Todd Grisham to join its team of broadcasters. Grisham is best known for his work with ESPN and WWE and is a sound addition to the team. It should be noted, however, that he is NOT the man hired to replace Goldberg.

Grisham will debut for the UFC at UFC Fight Night 103 on FS1 on January 15th. The event marks the return of B.J. Penn and is the first event of 2017 for the UFC. Grisham confirmed his new role with a change to his twitter handle:

From all of us here at MikeSwick.com we want to congratulate Todd on his new role and look forward to what he will bring to the broadcasts.
