Veteran UFC announcer Bruce Buffer has been tapped for a return trip to a World Extreme Cagefighting broadcast. Buffer has agreed to handle announcing duties at June's "WEC 49: Varner vs. Shalorus" event. While terms of the deal were not disclosed, Buffer's contract with the WEC does not appear to be long-term in nature at this time and instead applies only to the June event. Buffer's services were required following the recent departure of former WEC announcer Joe Martinez. Martinez originally said he resigned for family reasons but then revealed his contract with WEC had not been renewed and that he also had a contract to work boxing events for Golden Boy Promotions.

I would be shocked if Buffer isn't the ring announcer from now on for all Zuffa events.
