The search for Mike Goldberg’s replacement may not officially be over, but the Ultimate Fighting Championship has brought on a veteran TV broadcaster and reporter in the meantime.

According to a report by MMAFighting.com on Tuesday evening, the UFC has hired Todd Grisham. Multiple outlets have since confirmed the report.

Grisham, who has years of experience in front of the camera for both World Wrestling Entertainment and ESPN, will work in the studio and do play-by-play for fights for the Las Vegas-based promotion. Grisham has also been working for Glory Kickboxing as an interviewer and play-by-play man on UFC Fight Pass. He will begin his UFC career on Jan. 15 for the UFC Fight Night “Penn vs. Rodriguez” event in Phoenix.

Grisham, 40, has not been brought on to replace Goldberg, according to the report. The UFC has not made an official announcement regarding the hire. There is no official word on who will formally replace Goldberg, who worked his last UFC event on Dec. 30 when he called UFC 207 in Las Vegas.
