Mike Goldberg, the play-by-play voice for UFC pay-per-view and FOX events, will sit in on a different sport this weekend, as he broadcasts the Minnesota Vikings-Detroit Lions game for FOX.

Goldberg will be joined by former player Brendon Ayanbadejo and sideline reporter Peter Schrager for the 1 p.m. ET game. The contest will be available in the Minnesota, Detroit and Louisville markets on FOX.

Later this year, Goldberg will call another Vikings game, as the same trio announce the Minnesota-Buffalo Bills contest on October 19, and also on FOX.

The 49-year-old native of Ohio briefly flirted with a move to the WWE and pro wrestling in 2005 before resigning with the UFC. He started with the promotion in 1997 and has also worked college football and NHL games.
