Yesterday Dana White promised that the latest addition to their broadcast team, former ESPN host Jon Anik, will be kept very busy in 2012, and that will include being the new host of the ‘Ultimate Insider’ series.

Previously the show has been exclusive to UFC.com and has been hosted by Octagon girl Arianny Celeste, but Anik will now step into the role as it moves to Fuel TV in January.

Amongst Anik’s other duties for the UFC will be doing play-by-play for the promotion’s ‘Fight Night’ and ‘TUF Finale’ events on FX and Fuel TV, plus taking a presenting role on the revamped live series of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ when it arrives on FOX next year.

Anik’s previous credentials include hosting ESPN’s MMA Live show, plus has been an anchor on ‘SportsCenter’ and delivered play-by-play commentary for Bellator Fighting Championships first season.
