UFC signs new announcer

UFC announced today at a press conference today in Las Vegas he signing of Jon Anik, the former host of MMA Live on ESPN, as a new announcer.

Anik will be the voice of UFC on FX, which means he will do both FX specials and The Ultimate Fighter.  What that apparently means is they will be doing live commentary of the fights starting with the next season of the show, where the fights themselves will be airing live on Friday nights.  This would be the first time the TUF fights in the house will be broadcast with play-by-play commentary if this is the case.
