karyn Bryant has been an integral part of the UFC’s hosting team during their time on FOX, and she’s now revealed that’s set to continue after signing a new deal with ESPN.
“Now we’ve finished up everything, dotted the I’s, crossed the T’s, so I’m really psyched,” Bryant told MMAjunkie Radio. “I’ll still be doing what I’m doing – it’s just I don’t know how everything is going to exactly work yet, if the shows will look just the same.”
Bryant went on to admit that she would have been hugely disappointed if she hadn’t been able to continue working with the UFC on ESPN.
“I would have been very heartbroken, of course,” Bryant said. “I’m not looking for it to end. People are like, ‘What are you going to do if it ends?’ I don’t really plan for that. I have other things that I like to do, but I’m never figuring for those things to be instead of the UFC – it was always along with doing the UFC.
“… I would have been really crushed, so I’m happy to keep going. I’m very bonded to our analysts, I’m very bonded to the fighters – it’s what I’ve been doing for a long time now, so I wasn’t looking for it to end.”
Bryant is also hoping to continue working with FOX as well though, helping to cover the Westminster Kennel Club dog show and also potentially continuing her work as a sideline reporter for FOX’s NFL coverage in 2019 as well.
