How could he do this to that poor girl?
It looks like Jon Anik’s role with the UFC won’t be limited to just play-by-play broadcasting. The former ESPN host and broadcasting veteran told Heavy.com’s Megan Olivi yesterday following the UFC 137 press conference that he will also be taking the reins from Arianny Celeste as the host of the Ultimate Insider show and will also possibly be hosting a UFC radio program.
Anik, who told Olivi that his gig with ESPN only saw him work about 20% of the time on MMA-related content said that he would only have left ESPN for a role with the UFC and was happy to have gotten the call. At the risk of receiving an angry phone call tomorrow afternoon, we will just say that Anik should add some credibility to the show.
Let’s just hope for our sake Jon doesn’t take us behind the scenes on the set of one of his lingerie photo shoots or we may be eating our words.
