The Ultimate Fight Championship is adding some flair to its broadcasts thanks to hip hop legend Snoop Dogg.
On Friday, Brett Okamoto of ESPN.com reported the UFC is set to debut a new commentary team featuring Snoop Dogg as the play-by-play analyst and UFC Hall of Famer Urijah Faber calling the action alongside him.
Snoop and Faber will debut in the booth as an alternate commentary — dubbed “SnoopCast” — on July 11 when “Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series” debuts exclusively on UFC Fight Pass.
“I’m a big fan of UFC and [am] looking forward to joining the team to bring my unique take on all the action,” Snoop Dogg said in a statement to ESPN.
“Y’all in for a brand-new experience with Dogg on the mic.”
Snoop Dogg has entertained fans in the past with his unique and enthusiastic style of calling the fights on social media. But of course, he will need to tame down his language a little bit for the UFC Fight Pass shows — we think.

It is definitely going to bring a new experience to the UFC broadcast. At the very least, MMA fans should expect to be in for a few laughs.
Along with Snoop Dogg and Urijah Faber, the UFC is expected to announce a traditional commentary team for the series which will air live every Tuesday night with five fights from inside of The Ultimate Fighter Gym in Las Vegas.
