Fox Officials reportedly planning Family Guy-UFC tie-in

MMA Gonzo has learned from a high-ranking Fox Television employee that the Nov. 12 inaugural UFC on Fox broadcast will feature play-by-play from an unlikely member of the Fox “Family” –  Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane.

Welcome back to the Comedy Central roast of Bronson Pinchot...

The interesting move not only highlights just how little Fox executives care about the UFC product, it’s not even popular with McFarlane, who the source says usually will attach his name to literally anything:

“Word around the campfire is that Seth may do the entire fight in that Stewie voice, just because he’s so pissed about the whole thing,” said the source, which was definitely not a member of the 27-time Emmy award winning staff of “The Simpsons.”

“Seth wants so badly to be considered hip, hence all those atrocious Comedy Central roasts, but he wants nothing to do with the UFC, or any type of sporting activity not involving plastic surgery,”  continued the source, in no way affiliated with the  longest-running American primetime, scripted television series.

“Fox still owns his soul from his earlier ‘not so comfortably in the closet,’ days.”
