UFC Fight Night presented by Modelo: Kattar vs. Emmett will be live from Moody Center in Austin, Texas, this Saturday, June 18.

The main event features a featherweight fireworks matchup between No.4 Calvin Kattar and No.7 Josh Emmett.

Jon Anik will call the action, alongside former two-division champion and UFC Hall of Famer, Daniel Cormier and two-time UFC Bantamweight champion, Dominick Cruz. Megan Olivi will handle reporting duties.  Spanish-language commentary will be handled by Victor Davila and Santiago Ponzinibbio.

As I write this on 11-11-21, it's now 35 years for me at ESPN, the only real job I’ve ever had. I joined merely to help with the America’s Cup for three months at all of $5.50 per hour. I like to say I simply kept showing up. I’ve worked on almost every sport, plus answered viewer calls and letters (people used to write!), given tours, written the company newsletter and once drove NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon to the local airport. My travels have been varied…I’ve been to Martinsville, Darlington, Indy and Super Bowls; the America’s Cup (all 3) in San Diego and College GameDay in the sport’s meccas such as Eugene, Auburn, Lubbock, Stillwater and more; the NBA Finals, Wimbledon (16 times and counting) and the “other Bristol,” the one with a race track in Tennessee. These days, my main areas are tennis, UFC, boxing, ratings, and corporate communications documents, including more than 30 of the Year in Review press releases.
