Todd Grisham has served as both an anchor for ESPN and a broadcaster and personality for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) for a number of years.
Yesterday, Grisham, 40, posted on Twitter that he changed his handle to @GrishamMMA.
According to MMAFighting, Grisham will work on the studio desk and in the play-by-play role for fights, sources confirmed on Tuesday.
Grisham’s debut will be on the desk at UFC Fight Night: Penn vs. Rodriguez on Jan. 15 in Phoenix.
Just changed my twitter handle to @GrishamMMA. 2017 is going to be a great year!
