Jim Ross Says He’s Interested In Doing MMA Announcing

1

During a recent radio interview, WWE Hall Of Fame announcer Jim Ross spoke about the possibility of doing some MMA announcing.

Ross, who made his fight announcing debut for a recent Golden Boy Promotions boxing event on FOX Sports 1 and has appeared on UFC Fight Pass a few times, said the following when asked if he would ever do some MMA announcing:

“I don’t have any idea. I’ve thrown it out there. That’s why you have agents. I got two of them. They’re both talking different deals so I don’t know. I’m interested. The door is open, so we’ll see who walks through, if anybody.”
