Mike Goldberg Leaving Ufc

The longtime play-by-play voice of the Octagon unceremoniously parted ways with the UFC last month after spending 20 years as a mainstay of the company’s broadcast booth — exiting the UFC without even a tribute from the promotion itself. On Monday, speaking publicly for the first time since his departure, Goldberg said he was stunned to learn of the UFC’s decision to not renew his contract at the beginning of December, and explained that he simply resolved to close out the final three shows of his UFC career with the same level of professionalism as everything that came before.

Before him leaving, he was one of the last remaining figures within the UFC to pre-date the Zuffa era. His career outside the Octagon began all the way in 1997, back when he replaced Bruce Beck on the play-by-play desk at UFC 15.5: Ultimate Japan — a full three years before an investment group led by the Fertittas and Dana White purchased the struggling UFC for just $2 million dollars.

Over the years since, Goldberg and his broadcast partner Joe Rogan announced hundreds of UFC events big and small, serving as the voices of the Octagon at a time when the sport grew from awkward sideshow to the international behemoth that it is today.

But Goldberg’s dismissal was not an isolated incident. A myriad of high- and low-level UFC employees have either left the company or been laid off since the UFC was acquired by entertainment giant WME-IMG for a massive price tag of more than $4 billion in July 2016. And for that reason, Goldberg said he did not ask the UFC why it was letting him go after initially being offered no reason behind the move.
