The commentary team for Aljamain Sterling vs. Henry Cejudo at UFC 288 has been confirmed.
The duo face each other on May 6th, 2023, at the Prudential Center, New Jersey. Sterling arrives into the fight in impressive form, having won his last eight bouts. His last win was a KO victory over TJ Dillashaw in the second round.
Therefore, the current champion has a lot to lose. Meanwhile, Cejudo is on a six-fight-win streak. His latest victory came over Dominick Cruz with a KO in the second round following a knee.
Thus, the former titleholder knows that victory could rejuvenate his career. In chief support, welterweight contenders Gilbert Burns and Belal Muhammad go head to head.
With that being said, the MMA Junkie reports that the UFC 288 commentary team will consist of Jon Anik, Daniel Cormier, and Joe Rogan. Additionally, Bruce Buffer will be responsible for the Octagon voice duties.

Rogan isn't the best announcer, but his passion for the sport is infectious. It's a good compliment to the more contemplative guys on either side of him.
