Michael Bisping Replaces Daniel Cormier on UFC 298 Broadcast Team

Former middleweight champion Michael Bisping will replace Daniel Cormier as part of the commentary team for the upcoming UFC 298 broadcast.

So, here’s the scoop. The UFC 298 broadcast team? Yeah, it’s gonna look a bit different this time around.

You remember Michael Bisping, right? Former middleweight champ? He’s stepping in for Daniel Cormier. He’ll be part of the commentary team, calling the fights straight from Anaheim, California.

But don’t worry, the rest of the pay-per-view team is the same. Jon Anik’s still handling play-by-play. And Joe Rogan? He’s still adding color to the commentary, right alongside Bisping.

And Megan Olivi? She’s still on reporting duty.

This info? Straight from UFC officials. They confirmed the broadcast team to MMA Fighting just this Friday.

Bisping’s no stranger to the pay-per-view scene, by the way. He’s filled in before, especially for international cards. Remember when Rogan didn’t travel outside the U.S.? Bisping was there. He called the fights with Cormier and Anik at UFC 286. That was back in March, when the promotion landed in his home turf, England.

Now, let’s talk about the fights. UFC 298? It’s headlined by a featherweight title fight. Alexander Volkanovski‘s defending his belt against Ilia Topuria. That’s the main event.

The co-main event? That’s Robert Whittaker, another ex-middleweight champ. He’s clashing with Paulo Costa. It’s a crucial matchup at 185 pounds. The pay-per-view main card also features Ian Machado Garry and Geoff Neal. Plus, there’s a potential No. 1 contender’s bout at bantamweight. Merab Dvalishvili‘s facing former two-division UFC champion Henry Cejudo.

And the main card? It’s expected to kick off with middleweights Anthony Hernandez and Roman Kopylov. The whole shebang’s happening at the Honda Center in Anaheim.
