In recent years, after fans see broadcast replays of sensational finishes in UFC fights, they’ve been able to look forward to extra replays.
If the fight’s ending is particularly stunning, be it because it came at an unexpected moment or because of its ferociousness, the voices in the broadcast booth have a tendency to respond the way most people would – and it typically involves a loud “Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh!” exclamation, wide eyes and a dropped jaw.
Those same broadcasters have small cameras pointed at them now to capture those behind-the-scenes moments when they happen, and some of the most fun parts of UFC broadcasts often involve a chance to see the reactions of play-by-play voices Jon Anik and Brendan Fitzgerald and analysts like Joe Rogan, Daniel Cormier, Paul Felder and Michael Bisping.
With the UFC’s 2021 schedule in the books, the promotion gives us a look back at some of the best broadcast reaction moments from the past year. Check out the video above, as well as the photo gallery below.
