UFC receives prestigious 'Wide World of Sports' blazer on ABC 3 broadcasting team
UFC on the ABC3 broadcasting team will play a classic form of the network on Saturday.
One of the best sports television programs in history, "ABC's Wide World of Sports", is known for more than award-winning programming,
hosts and commentators. The program introduced the iconic look of the yellow blazer with a huge network logo patch,
quickly becoming one of the most recognizable looks in sports broadcasts.
On Friday, the UFC on the ABC3 broadcast crew of John Anick, Paul Felder,
Din Thomas and Meghan Olivy received their own blazers as a surprise gift before the event to be aired on ABC,
which will add a throwback element to the event at the UBS Arena in Elmont, NY.

"Day = made," Anik wrote in the Instagram caption.
"Thank you to our incredible @espnmma team for doing this! It would indeed be an honor to wear it tomorrow on ABC.
