Announcer Jimmy Smith, UFC Part Ways To Begin 2019

Jimmy Smith announced on social media that his contract with the UFC has not been renewed, making the veteran announcer a free agent.

Smith worked with Bellator MMA prior to signing with the UFC.

“Now that the New Year has arrived I’m afraid I have to announce that the UFC has declined to re-sign me and my time with the promotion has come to an end. I just want to thank everyone at the promotion who made me feel welcome and appreciate at every single show,” Smith wrote. “I tried my utmost to show the fighters the respect they deserved for giving their lives to this sport and hope they felt that when they heard what I had to say. The UFC fans were truly amazing and I wish I could thank each and every one of you for your support and even your criticism because it made me strive to be better. Wishing everyone a great 2019 and on to the next fight…Adios Amigos.”
