UFC announced today the signing of former Bellator commentator Jimmy Smith.
Smith who was one of Bellator’s most popular voices left the company this past December on good terms. He is considered one of MMA’s most respected commentators and will be considered a great addition to the UFC broadcast team where he will have the opportunity to commentate alongside a new select panel of experts. Including the well-known pay-per-view commentator, Joe Rogan, and fighters such as former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz and the current light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier.
Smith addressed the good news on his Twitter account:
Honored to be a part of the @ufc and getting to call the biggest fights in the world!! Can’t wait to get to know everyone there and show how hard I can work!!
