John Gooden (that'll be me!) is a presenter and sports commentator currently serving as the lead presenter and play-by-play commentator for the UFC (www.UFC.com) EMEA region (and sometimes Asia).
From developing interviewing and writing techniques whilst working in the City of London to learning about all aspects of television production with the BBC, John has acquired a unique set of skills for broadcasting. And as the years of competitive sport continue to take their toll, it is behind the mic and camera that he now feels more comfortable. That said, John can still be seen lacing up the gloves and also clocking up the miles in triathlons and obstacle races.
Aside from the above, John is also:
- a qualified electrician and 'inspector'
- an ENG producer for the UFC
- a vegan
- a champion of consumers
- a left footer
- a husband
- a dog owner
