Joe Rogan has returned to the table.
MMA Fighting’s Damon Martin has confirmed to officials that the UFC celebrity will be joining color commentator Daniel Cormier as well as veteran play-by-play guy Jon Anik, who will call UFC 276 in Las Vegas this Saturday. MMA Junkie first reported the news.
The assignment marks Rogan’s return to the desk after he did not work UFC 275 this past June, an event that took place in Singapore. Rogan’s replacement for Cormier, Anik and Anik to host the pay-per view was Michael Bisping, a former UFC Middleweight Champion.
The UFC 276 headlines a pair championship fights. Israel Adesanya will defend the title of middleweight against Jared Cannonier, and the co-main event sees Alexander Volkanovski, the featherweight champion, meet Max Holloway. Rogan has been on hand for some of these champions’ most memorable moments, including Adesanya’s epic five-round title fight with Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 236, and Volkanovski’s first win over Holloway at UFC 245.
Also confirmed for the broadcast, Megan Olivi will serve as the event’s roving reporter.
