Mike Goldberg Denies Rumors Of Drug Addiction, Targets UFC On Fox 6 For Return

The veteran voice of the Octagon, Mike Goldberg, has finally released a statement concerning his exit from UFC 155 last month.

Goldberg, who typically handles play-by-play duties for all UFC pay-per-view and Fox cards, was replaced by Jon Anik for the late December show.

Once UFC president Dana White failed to set a target date for his return, rumors started to swirl concerning a possible drug addiction for Goldberg. The 48-year-old, who has been with the UFC since 1997, addressed those rumors in a statement to

I’m doing well. Those rumors out there are not true. I’m dealing with a complicated health issue but feeling better and hoping to be back to 100-percent by Jan. 26. See you soon.

That date marks the first UFC on Fox show of 2013 from Chicago. UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson defends his title against John Dodson.
