As we reported, Jim Ross will be making his MMA announcing debut alongside Chael Sonnen for BattleGrounds MMA in Tulsa, Oklahoma on October 3rd. In a press release on the event, both JR and Sonnen commented on the event…
Jim Ross: As a longtime fan of MMA, to be asked to call the fights for the BattleGrounds MMA event is amazingly exciting for me. FOX Sports boxing and WWE action, but MMA is a new adventure and one that I’m enormously excited about contributing to. To launch this phase of my broadcasting career in my home state, and with Chael Sonnen at cageside makes it an ideal opportunity and a bucket list experience.
Chael Sonnen: “This is going to be a TV event that any MMA fan won’t want to miss. I am thrilled to be working with a legend like Jim Ross and, together, we are going to make the BattleGrounds MMA event one of the most exciting extravaganzas in combat sports history.”
