It has been announced that Mauro Ranallo and Jay Glazer will join the broadcast team for the upcoming EliteXC show on Showtime.
Originally it was announced that former WWE star Bill Goldberg and Mario Lopez would be in charge of the announcing duties. Luckily for MMA fans, Showtime and EliteXC has added some legit announcing with the additions of Glazer and Ranallo.
Mauro Ranallo will be in charge of the play-by-play duties while Goldberg and Glazer provide the color commentary. Mario Lopez will serve as a “roving reporter”.
I’m happy to see Showtime has added some legit talent in the broadcast booth. When I first heard that Bill Goldberg and Mario Lopez would be the announcers I figured the organization was destined for failure. Goldberg was absolutely horrid when he did the color commentary on the WFA: King of the Streets show.
