Jon Anik and Dominick Cruz Call Fights from Oklahoma City
LOS ANGELES, CA – No. 2-ranked UFC lightweight Tony Ferguson (@TonyFergusonXT) joins welterweight champion Tyron Woodley (@TWooodley) and retired contender Kenny Florian (@KennyFlorian) as analysts on the FOX Sports desk with host Karyn Bryant (@KarynBryant) for FS1 UFC FIGHT NIGHT: CHIESA VS. LEE on Sunday, June 25.
Former bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz (@DominickCruz) joins blow-by-blow announcer Jon Anik (@Jon_Anik) to call the fights live from Oklahoma City, while reporter Laura Sanko (@laura_sanko) interviews fighters on-site. UFC bantamweight Erik “Goyito” Perez (@Goyito_Perez) and Victor Davila (@mastervic10) call the Spanish language telecast on FOX Deportes.
Top lightweights No. 7-ranked Michael Chiesa (14-2) and No. 12 Kevin Lee (15-2) headline FS1 UFC FIGHT NIGHT: CHIESA VS. LEE. Chiesa comes into the fight riding a three-fight winning streak. Owner of 10 submission victories – five in under three minutes – he is primed to make a run to the top of the 155-pound division and his quest starts with Lee. At just 24 years old, Lee may be one of the stars of the future in the lightweight division, but he already has 10 UFC appearances, riding a four-fight win streak and finishing his last three fights.
The three-hour main card begins Sunday on FS1 and FOX Deportes at 9:00 PM ET and features five more exciting fights. Middleweight veteran Tim Boetsch (20-11) fights former welterweight champion Johny Hendricks (18-6), while No. 13-ranked strawweight Felice Herrig (12-6) and Justine Kish (6-0) square off. Light heavyweights Joachim Christensen (14-5) and Azamat Murzakanov (7-0) go to battle. Welterweight Tim Means (26-8-1, 1NC) fights Alex Garcia (14-3), while UFC Hall of Famer BJ Penn (16-11-2) and Dennis Siver (22-11, 1NC) open the main card with a featherweight bout.
The two-hour UFC FIGHT NIGHT PRELIMS are on FS2 and FOX Deportes at 7:00 PM ET, with four bouts. Lightweights Clay Guida (32-14) and Erik Koch (15-4) collide. Vitor Miranda (13-5) takes on Marvin Vettori (11-3) at 185 pounds, while No. 8 Carla Esparza (12-4) fights No. 10 Maryna Moroz (8-1) in a strawweight tilt. Devin Powell (8-1) and Darrell Horcher (12-2) open the PRELIMS with a lightweight bout.
Saturday’s coverage begins on FS2 at 6:00 PM ET with the FS1 UFC FIGHT NIGHT PREFIGHT SHOW, hosted by Bryant with Woodley, Florian, Ferguson and reporter Sanko.
