UFC Welterweight Hoping To Transition As Color Commentator
One UFC welterweight is looking to join the broadcast booth.
Since his amateur days back in 2010, Alan Jouban has been mixing it up inside the cage as an MMA fighter. He made his UFC debut back in August 2014. Jouban has gone 8-5 under the UFC banner and is coming off a unanimous decision win over Jared Gooden. At the age of 39 and with 24 pro bouts under his belt, Jouban is unsure of his fighting future.
With that said, “Brahma” appears to have a clear vision regarding his next venture. Speaking to MMAJunkie.com, Jouban said he hopes to call UFC fights as a color commentator.
“Being a part of the broadcast team has been a long-term goal of mine since I joined the UFC. At 39, I really don’t know what’s next for my career. I kind of feel how Paul Felder did where he took a step back for a while. But obviously, I couldn’t do it too long if I wanted to come back.
“In the meanwhile, I’ve loved working the desk lately on a lot of fights and absolutely have color commentary in the UFC as my main goal. I started working some color with LFA recently, and it’s been a great experience and learning experience to get more reps.”
Jouban would join the likes of Daniel Cormier, Dominick Cruz, Michael Bisping, Paul Felder, and others if he were to join the UFC broadcast team. Jouban has been used as a desk analyst for UFC events in the past and he even served as a color commentator for LFA 97.
