John Anik revealed he has re-signed with the UFC, extending his stay with the promotion after more than 10-years with the promotion.

Anik, the UFC’s go-to play-by-play commentator who joined the UFC in 2011, confirmed the news on Twitter, saying:

“So grateful. Grateful for the fighters. I hold you all in the highest regard. Grateful for UFC fans. Your support gives me great energy to perform! Grateful for my bosses, who entrust me with this tremendous responsibility. I’ll never take it lightly. And my colleagues…love ya!”

Six years after signing with the UFC, John Anik would go on to replace long-time UFC commentator Mike Goldberg on the UFC’s pay-per-view broadcasts. Since then, Anik has become a fan favorite, working brilliantly alongside a slew of color commentators over the years including Dominick Cruz, Paul Felder, Joe Rogan, Daniel Cormier, and Michael Bisping.
