Friday, July 11, 2014

Last week Chael Sonnen was released from his broadcast contract with the UFC and FOX, leaving an empty space for an analyst. Today the UFC announced that Chris Lytle will serve as an analyst for Wednesday's UFC Fight Night 45: Cerrone vs. Miller:

UFC on FOX analysts Kenny Florian, Daniel Cormier and host Karyn Bryant welcome former UFC welterweight contender Chris Lytle to the analyst desk as he makes his debut at the UFC FIGHT NIGHT WEIGH-IN on Tuesday, July 15 and works the PREFIGHT and POSTFIGHT coverage on FOX Sports 1 as well. Jon Anik and Brian Stann call the fights on FOX Sports 1 live from the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, while Victor Dávila and Fabricio Werdum call the action for FOX Deportes.
