Former ESPN/WWE anchor Grisham joins UFC
January 3, 2017
Former WWE broadcaster Todd Grisham will be taking an on-air position with the UFC. Grisham had been an ESPN anchor for the past 6 years.
Mike Goldberg ended his play-by-play duties with the company on Friday at UFC 207. There is still no official word as to the PPV announcer to replace Goldberg.
Grisham confirmed his job with the UFC with MMA Junkie. He will make his debut at the commentary desk at UFC Fight Night 103.
While he was at ESPN, Grisham worked on the now defunct “MMA Live” show and also provided in-ring interviews and commentating for Glory Kickboxing.
According to his LinkedIn profile, Grisham graduated from the University of West Georgia in 1998 and then was a local sports anchor for several years before moving to Fox and then to the WWE from January 2004-October 2011. He then went to ESPN until his move to the UFC this year.
Grisham is no stranger to combat sports and I would not think the quality should fall off. The former ESPN anchor is likely one of many changes coming to the company in the new year.
