Unified Fighting Championship (UFC) co-creator Bruce Buffer asserts that he has discovered a “better and more fun” ring announcer.

An individual who was one of the co-founders of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and was responsible for recruiting octagon announcer Bruce Buffer has now asserted that he has found a suitable replacement.

Since 1996, when he made his first appearance as an announcer for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Buffer has been a member of the UFC’s staff. His incredible record of announcing pay-per-view broadcasts of UFC events dates all the way back to UFC 11, when he first began doing so. The American, who is now 66 years old, has provided his distinctive voice for every major pay-per-view (PPV) and numbered event that the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has held over the years, with the exception of UFC 267 in 2021.

However, there is a recurrent concern among mixed martial arts fans regarding who will take over for Buffer after he retires, and it would appear that Campbell McLaren, CEO of Combate Global and co-creator of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, has the resolution to this dilemma. The following is a suggestion that McLaren made on X (which was formerly known as Twitter) on a potential replacement for the octagon announcer:

My name is Beatriz Calis, and I am the ring announcer for Combate. MMA and show business are both on her radar. On behalf of UFC, I hired Bruce Buffer. Beatriz is superior, and it is more enjoyable to watch her.

Additionally, Campbell McLaren is the person who was responsible for getting Joe Rogan, a veteran analyst for the Ultimate Fighting Championship, to participate in post-fight interviews during UFC 12 in 1997.
