Doesn't seem like a good thing... Per MMAJunkie...


LAS VEGAS – The UFC will try out a new broadcast pairing on Saturday for UFC 155 – though that wasn't the plan until this week.

Regular pay-per-view play-by-play voice Mike Goldberg will sit out the UFC's year-end event, and Jon Anik will join analyst Joe Rogan in the broadcast booth.

UFC President Dana White on Friday confirmed the change to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) but could not offer specifics into the situation or when Goldberg is expected to return to his post.

"He's taking time off and is not working this weekend," White said. "I don't know when he will be back.

White declined to offer any specifics on the reason for Goldberg's leave.

UFC 155 takes place at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and features a main event heavyweight title fight between champion Junior Dos Santos and former champ and top contender Cain Velasquez.

Anik has been the UFC's "B team" play-by-play voice for the past year and calls the majority of the promotion's shows on FX and FUEL TV along with former contender and broadcast partner Kenny Florian. Goldberg and Rogan handle pay-per-view cards, FOX shows and other shows when circumstances dictate.

Anik, a former host of "MMA Live" on ESPN2 and ESPN.com, joined the UFC in a broadcast role in 2011. This past spring, he was the host of "The Ultimate Fighter Live" on FX. He also hosts "Ultimate Insider" on FUEL TV, which airs Tuesday nights following "UFC Tonight."

UFC 155 will be Anik's first pay-per-view opportunity with the UFC.

For more on UFC 155, stay tuned to the UFC Rumors section of the site.

(UPDATED at 6:10 p.m. ET on 12/28/12 to include clarification from UFC President Dana White that Goldberg is "taking time off" and is not missing UFC 155 due to illness, as originally reported.) Phone Post

I hope Goldie is ok.



I like Anik and I think he'll fit in well with Rogan. At least until I take Rogans place. Then me and Anik will run that shit. Phone Post

He just doesn't have that Couture-esque work ethic or the athleticism of Melvin Guillard... Phone Post

Don't worry fight fans, Anik has less hair and experience, but everything else will be virtually identical. Phone Post

Compared to previous PPV's, UFC 155 will feel a little different with Goldie's absence.  Luckily, everything else will be virtually identical.

Goldie is great. People let an occasional gaffe overshadow his talents. I really hope he is ok and that he comes back soon.

I said last event he looked out of his mind and was a mess on the mic... If I had to take a guess, it'd be rehab

I was wondering if he asked for or was told to take some time. Hope he is alright.

Goldie supporters? After the drubbing he's taken on interweb forums all these years his supporters finally emerge when he's on hiatus?
