Jim Ross & Chael Sonnen To Call BattleGrounds MMA PPV (10/3)

In what has to be considered the most unique MMA announcing team in history, Jim Ross and Chael Sonnen will be teaming up to call the action for the upcoming Battleground MMA pay-per-view.

The WWE Hall Of Fame announcer “Good Ole’ JR” will team up with “The Gangster from West Linn, Oregon” Chael Sonnen for the event that is scheduled to take place in JR’s home-state of Oklahoma on October 3rd.

Ross and Sonnen will handle the play-by-play duties for the event, which features Ryan Couture (8-3), son of UFC legend Randy Couture, challenging Jonny “King of Late Night” Carson (11-6) in the main event.

Also scheduled for the event is an exciting eight-man tournament in the Welterweight division, one that is filled with former UFC and Strikeforce veterans. The tourney consists of Dennis Hallman (53-15-2), Brock Larson (37-8), Roan Carneiro (17-9), Luigi Fioravanti (24-11), Cody McKenzie (15-4), David Mitchell (14-4), Trey Houston (10-2) and Chris Honeycutt (4-0).

The Battleground MMA pay-per-view emanates from the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Friday, October 3, 2014.
