Mike Goldberg will return to his announce chair for the January 26 UFC on Fox: Johnson vs. Dodson event from Chicago. Dave Sholler, the UFC’s director of communications, confirmed Goldberg’s return during a conference call on Tuesday.
Goldberg missed UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II to close out 2012, citing a need to take care of some personal issues. Goldberg has dismissed reports of a drug addiction, but has not yet said the exact reason for his exit from the card.
Jon Anik, who typically handles the UFC’s FX and Fuel TV play-by-play duties, filled in for Goldberg on the card.
