Evolution Fighting Championships 8 is almost upon us. The show takes place this Saturday, November 12 at 3PM in Rahway, New Jersey. The early start is so fans can catch the UFC HW title fight later on that evening.
I will be in the cage, of course, hosting the show, as I have done for all of Evolutions events. In addition to the ring announcing I also do some commentating, which is fun and challenging at the same time. Going forward, however, I will be joined in the broadcast booth by a new team of commentators. Anthony Sansonetti, head coach of Team Renegade out of Long Island, and Peter Lampasona, an MMA journalist and amateur fighter himself, will be doing the commentary for Saturday's show.
I am excited to work again with Sansonetti. I train at Team Renegade, and Anthony is the best trainer I've ever worked with. He's supremely knowledgable in all aspects of the sport and together with Peter will make a fine broadcast team.
Promoter Steven Katz is excited to have this team in place.
"Our commentary team," Katz said, "Peter Lampasona, now with TheFightNerd.com, MMA journalist, MMA fighter, he fought a couple of cards back teaming up with Anthony Sansonetti, Team Renegade out of Long Island. Anthony is a great, great technical coach. He competes himself, is a Sambo champion. He has Ben Syers [former Evolution champion] and Taylor Costantino out there, and these guys are doing some good work. He's our technical commentator there with Peter, along with Garv's little flavor and twists, leading these guys to great commentary. Looking to build the whole organization, take it to another level."
Evolution is certainly on the path to big things. Each show has been better than the last, and Saturday's show should be the best one yet. You do not want to miss it!
