Mauro Ranallo joins “Inside MMA” on AXS TV

March 9, 2016

Long-time combat sports commentator Mauro Ranallo has joined AXS TV as the new host of “Inside MMA” starting later this month according to a company press release.

Ranallo, who is currently the voice of WWE’s Smackdown will join Bas Rutten for the weekly show on AXS TV.  He has also called play-by-play for Showtime Boxing and was the play-by-play voice for the international feed for the much-heralded Pacquiao-Mayweather fight.

Kenny Rice will remain with Inside MMA as a special correspondent according to the press release.

Ranallo via AXS TV press release:

 “In a year in which I landed a dream job with WWE, my dream to once again cover MMA and work with my broadcasting brother Bas Rutten has also come true. Filling the shoes of consummate pro Kenny Rice won’t be easy but I can’t wait to return to AXS TV for some strong style MMA coverage!”

Ranallo served as the voice for New Japan Wrestling on AXS TV.  Jim Ross recently took over the duties for Ranallo.

Ranallo begins with Inside MMA on Friday, March 25th.

    Worst commentator in combat sports by far. Absolutely horrible.

    In terms of play by play, I would take Swift foot Wallace over him.

Got something to say?
