All you Mauro Ranallo fans can breathe easy, and Bill Goldberg haters even easier, because Mauro will be a part of the broadcasting team for EliteXC Saturday Night Fights on CBS—Goldberg will not. Mauro will not be the play-by-play announcer, however. According to a press release issued by ProElite, Gus Johnson will be taking that spot at the broadcast table alongside Mauro and Frank Shamrock, who will serve as analysts. Karyn Bryant will serve as the cageside reporter.
For those not familiar with Gus Johnson, here’s a quick video of him wrapping up a Bills/Broncos NFL game in the broadcast booth. Johnson on the left.
A definite improvement over the Showtime team.
