UFC lead play-by-play commentator Jon Anik submitted formal complaint paperwork to human resources this morning after allegedly being on the receiving end of verbal abuse and threats from an unnamed individual within the organization.
“Hey, there, sorry about this,” Anik reportedly said as he left the paperwork with his HR representative. “I know this is the last thing you need right now, and I’m sure there’s already a thorough investigation going on behind the scenes to address this and make sure nothing like it happens again, but I just wanted to make sure that I was doing my part to make sure all the i’s are dotted and t’s crossed. I’d hate to see you guys do all this work and be undone because I didn’t officially report it, you know? Can never be too safe, right? Anyways, have a good day.”
Reached for comment, the UFC said that the individual in question is not an employee of the organization and as such is outside of the reach of any available disciplinary options.
