Affliction MMA today made the broadcast team official for its debut show, “Banned,” which will take place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., on July 19.
And the veteran voice of mixed martial arts Mauro Ranallo -– who was believed to be part of the ensemble -– will not call the fights for the upstart promotion.
In fact, according to press release issued just this morning, “television sports reporter and announcer, Jay Glazer, will handle blow-by-blow action” for the pay-per-view (PPV) and Fox Sports Net (FSN) telecasts.
Glazer will be shoulder-to-shoulder in the booth with color commentators, Frank Trigg and “Big” John McCarthy. This won’t be the first time Glazer and Trigg have teamed up -– the pair hosted the Pride FC special programs that often aired on FSN.LINK
