Notable UFC commentators from the promotion

Joe Rogan

Joe Rogan endures as one of the brightest prodigies of UFC who has remained active in the promotion since its infancy. Rogan shot to fame, both inside and outside the octagon, on the back of his work on the commentators’ desk.

Jon Anik

Jon Anik, the former ESPN anchor, is currently associated with UFC and is one of their A-listed commentators. After Joe Rogan, Jon Anik is arguably the second most popular commentator of the promotion who is omnipresent, be it weigh-ins or any other occasion. Anik, 42, has also hosted several MMA shows while he was associated with ESPN.

Dominick Cruz

Former UFC bantamweight champion and one of the true veterans of the sport, Dominick Cruz, is as skilled with a mic as he is with his fists. Cruz, 35, is often spotted in the UFC’s commentary panel and is one of the few fighters from the promotion to do so.

Paul Felder

‘The Irish Dragon’ Paul Felder is currently a UFC commentator. Although Felder continues to garner call-outs from several UFC fighters, on the brink of retirement, he avoids paying a lot of heed to these challenges.

Paul Felder is also one of the brightest commentators the promotion has ever witnessed. Currently, Paul Felder is retired from the sport but has often gone on to tease his potential return to the octagon while being a prominent figure in the commentary box.

Daniel Cormier

Dual champion and arguably one of the greatest men to have ever stepped foot inside the octagon, Daniel Cormier is an equally entertaining commentator.

DC has been a part of the commentary panel in various fight events and is a prominent character of the UFC administration in addition to being one of the A-listed fighters.
