LAS VEGAS – The UFC will try out a new broadcast pairing on Saturday for UFC 155 – though that wasn't the plan until this week.

An illness will keep regular pay-per-view play-by-play voice Mike Goldberg at home, and Jon Anik will join analyst Joe Rogan in the broadcast booth.

UFC officials on Friday confirmed the change to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

This could be very interesting. I don't like Goldberg and never really have. Aink and Florian don't do it for me together either. I am however, a big Rogan fan and I think mixing him up with someone else could be a good thing. I guess we'll see tomorrow.

Not a fan of Goldie (hope he gets better tho)...but i do like Anik and i think him and rogan will gel pretty well

Anik never gets excited when fights are finished and just never shows enough enthusiasm.

Would rather have Goldie any day

They just updated it. Goldberg isn't sick, he's just taking time off.

"He's taking time off and is not working this weekend," White said. "I don't know when he will be back."

I like Anik and he is like the opposite of Rogan. I am interested to hear them two work together

I'm not the biggest Goldie fan, but I like him a helluva lot better than Anik so I hope he gets back soon.

I think Anik is awesome from a journalistic point of view, guy really knows his shit, but I'm not feeling his lack of expressed passion. He's just too passive, too canned for me to really get behind him as an announcer. Good point in that he might work well with Rogan, and it'll be interesting to see how it plays.

I'm with you guys on the Goldberg-isms. The man's made a persona that practically mocks itself, and he tends to latch onto terms or maneuvers like "teep" and "Octagon rust."

That said, Goldie's enthusiasm is considerably more apparent, and he's actually quite good at filling the gaps and transitioning between point to point. Sure, he flubs a bit and should be taken to task for those, but it's a harder job than most give it credit for. He also engages Rogan a lot when it comes to the in-depth analysis, and he's typically been smooth about being corrected or when presenting a differing perspective.

Provided Goldie's healthy and didn't, like, have sex with a minor, I'll listen to him call the ball, warts and all.

(also, I hate not being able to props anyone in the thread because I've props'd them so recently. I get why, just...grr)

Might take a bit of heat for this but I'd much rather have Goldberg.Anik is a bore on commentary and in a way feels like he has a lack of passion for the sport.

Dana declined to comment on the absence. Something more is going on.
