Jimmy Smith signs with UFC


The UFC today announced that former long time Bellator colour commentator Jimmy Smith has signed with the promotion.

The popular Smith parted ways with Bellator after nine years, when the two sides couldn’t come to a deal on a new contract.

Smith will commentate on UFC broadcasts on FOX, Pay per View and pre fight programming.

I am honored to join the world’s premier combat sports brand in 2018. It is a privilege to call fights for a living and I can’t wait to join the tremendous UFC broadcast team to call the best fights in the world. “To the UFC fans, I am thrilled to join you for this wild ride. See you all very soon!” — Jimmy Smith said via official UFC press release.

We’re very excited to have Jimmy Smith join the UFC production team and look forward to working him into a variety of different on-air talent roles. Jimmy’s extensive experience in mixed martial arts gives him a unique voice and great insight to breakdown the intricacies of our sport. We are excited to welcome him to the family.” — UFC vice-president Craig Borsari stated via official UFC press release.

Time will tell what this will mean for the plethora of colour commentators the UFC currently utilises. However the signing of the excellent Smith is a welcome move.
