A familiar voice has joined the PFL, as former WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia has signed on as the in-cage announcer for the promotion.
The Professional Fighters League continues to make waves in the MMA world — and this time, it has recruited a former WWE talent in the process. The PFL, which earlier this year announced a two-year broadcast deal with ESPN and Canada’s TSN, on Monday announced that it had inked ex-WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia to a deal. Garcia, who spent 15 years with the WWE (occasionally getting involved with storylines, but mostly as an announcer and interviewer), will be the In-Cage Announcer of the PFL.
“I’m looking forward to stepping in the cage and getting back to introducing fighters to the masses, something I truly love and have missed,” said Garcia in a press release Monday. “What I find most intriguing about the PFL is that every fight matters. Each fighter enters the cage knowing they are competing for a shot at a title and million-dollar prize. There is so much drama surrounding that moment, and I’m honored to help bring it to life for fans in the arena and watching at home.”
In addition to her announcing duties, Garcia is a singer, and has performed the national anthem at numerous sporting events. She was also the first female in history to host WrestleMania.
