Rumor: UFC 207 will be the last time Mike Goldberg works for the UFC and The Internet reacts

According to a rumor on the MMA Internet, longtime UFC play by play announcer and human Zuffa soundboard Mike Godlberg’s final event of this career will be at UFC 207. If the rumor is true from a site, we don’t fully trust and pumps out nothing but questionable content, Goldberg’s run holding a UFC mic will have lasted 19 years.

19 years of Mike Goldberg being the de facto voice of the world’s fastest growing sport; the Super Bowl of Mixed Martial Arts if you will.

One side loves all things Goldberg and his unique way of using words to describe UFC action while the other half hates every fiber of Goldberg’s UFC being.

Update: It looks to be true
