UFC commentator Jon Anik and multi-time title challenger Kenny Florian have partnered with FOX Sports to make their podcast bigger and better going forward.

Anik and Florian (14-6 MMA, 12-5 UFC), who fought for a UFC title three times before retiring in May 2012, are a duo who have called numerous UFC shows from cageside, worked together on the analyst desk for FOX Sports properties and are 128 episodes deep into a podcast together, will see their show distributed on a new platform starting today.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have this opportunity to partner the ‘Anik & Florian Podcast’ with FOX Sports,” Anik told MMAjunkie. “We have worked hard over the last two-and-a-half years to establish the show and carve out a place in the podcast space, and I think this partnership with FOX just allows us to take it to the next level.”

According to a FOX Sports exec, the podcast, which sees new episodes released each Monday, will be enhanced “slowly over the coming weeks, adding video and graphics.” Aspects that have grown the podcast’s popularity will stay in place, such as guest interviews and the “Ray Longo Minute” with noted MMA coach Ray Longo.

Although the “Anik & Florian Podcast” has been in existence for more than two years, Anik said now was the right time to strike a deal with a partner like FOX Sports.

“Certainly among our goals for the podcast was to align ourselves with a content and distribution partner, but the right one,” Anik said. “I think FOX was always the best and preferred destination for our show. Thankfully, the interest was there on both sides and I just can’t wait to get started. Much of the show will remain the same.”

The biggest change going forward, Anik said, will likely be an expansion into a video format. FOX Sports made a noted pivot to video content earlier this year, and it appears the “Anik & Florian Podcast” could be a part of that vision.

“I know FOX would like to add a video component in the near future, so that is something we’re all looking forward to,” Anik said. “I mean, you don’t grow and care for hair like Kenny Florian’s without trying to put it on camera whenever possible.”

Past episode of the “Anik & Florian Podcast” are available for download.
