With the NFL season quickly approaching, Fox has revealed its announcing teams for the 2014 season, and Ultimate Fighting Championship play-by-play commentator Mike Goldberg is included.

Fox revealed the roster of commentators in a press release on Wednesday. While the usual suspects such as Joe Buck and Troy Aikman are prominently featured, Goldberg, along with his partners Brendan Ayanbadejo and Peter Schrager, will call a pair of regular season games.

Goldberg has prior NFL experience, announcing a handful of games for the Arizona Cardinals -- albeit in the preseason. Aside from that, the 49-year-old has dabbled in National Hockey League broadcasts, calling games for both the Minnesota Wild and Detroit Red Wings.

But what likely got him the new gig is his 17-year career calling the action inside the Octagon alongside Joe Rogan. With the UFC running events on Saturdays, Goldberg should be able to fulfill his NFL duties without issue.

As of now, Goldberg is set for action on Oct. 19, when the Minnesota Vikings take on the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard, N.Y.
