Jon Anik To Skip Upcoming UFC Sweden Show, Mike Goldberg To Fill In

When Mike Goldberg was unable to make a scheduled UFC event, Jon Anik stepped in and covered the play-by-play. Now, as Anik’s wife prepares to give birth to their second daughter, Goldberg will return the favor.

Anik, in an interview with Fighters.com, confirmed that Goldberg will call UFC on FUEL TV: Gustafsson vs. Mousasi next month from Stockholm. He will be joined by Kenny Florian.

“I can’t be that far away in case she comes early,” Anik said. “I will do the TUF Finale (later in April), but Goldie is going to handle the Sweden show. It will be nice to be home with my family.”

Anik has been a world traveler since joining the UFC, as he does the FX and FUEL TV cards, which has taken him to “China in November, Australia in December, Brazil in January, England in February and we just did Japan in March.”
