Former WEC announcer to lend Bruce Buffer a hand

Quote:
Former WEC announcer Joe Martinez will soon make his octagon debut.

Martinez recently revealed to Examiner.com that he has been hired for in-cage duties at next month's UFC on FX 6 event, which takes place on Saturday, Dec. 15 in Australia but due to the time difference airs live in the U.S. on Friday night.

Promotion mainstay Bruce Buffer is set for his familiar announcing role that same weekend at The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale, which takes place Dec. 15 in Las Vegas.

"It’s definitely a big deal," Martinez told Examiner.com. "I said it years ago, that it was and major goal of mine to announce a UFC event."

MMAjunkie.com confirmed Martinez's appointment with sources close to the event, but UFC execs have yet to make an official announcement. It's not yet known whether Martinez will be used at future events as well, but UFC President Dana White has long suggested the time is near when multiple UFC events will take place on the same night in locations around the globe.

Still, Buffer's role with the company is not expected to lessen.

"All my respect is to Bruce," Martinez said. "It's his gig, and I'm just more than happy to step in and fill a role for a night. The opportunity is there, and I am happy to be the one they have called on for it."

Martinez, who made his WEC debut in 2005, remains a fixture at numerous regional MMA events, as well as several high-profile boxing events as an employee of Golden Boy promotions.

UFC on FX 6, which also serves as the final of "The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes," takes place Dec. 15 at Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre in Broadbeach, Gold Coast, Australia. The event's main card airs live in the U.S. on FX (on Dec. 14 in the U.S. due to the time difference) following prelims on FUEL TV.

Ditto. I can't believe Bruce has never missed an event since he started! True workhorse and true MMA fan. Legend.

I really enjoyed Martinez in the WEC and definitely loved his Faber announcements.

Good for him, I'm glad he got the nod

He did a great job for the WEC. It's nice that he gets his shot at the really big stage. Who knows, he might be needed more often in the future.
