Anik will be paired with former MMA Live co-host Kenny Florian for this weekend’s UFC on FX 1 show in Nashville.
UFC officials confirmed the broadcast booth with MMAWeekly.com on Monday.
The two worked together for a couple of years while doing the ESPN show, and as of last year, Anik left ESPN to sign on exclusively with the UFC.
Florian, who has commentated several UFC shows in the past, will once again put on the headphones as he joins Anik in the commentary booth.
The former lightweight and featherweight contender is currently healing up from a serious back injury that could be career threatening.
This weekend however it will be all about Florian handling color commentary while Anik takes the play-by-play for this weekend’s UFC on FX show in Nashville airing on Friday night.
