Paige VanZant is going to channel her inner Joe Rogan soon.

Announced via a press release on Thursday, “PVZ” will make her live color commentating debut at the broadcast desk alongside veteran play-by-play man Sean Wheelock for an April 4 M-1 Global show that will air on UFC Fight Pass. The card takes place at Pipa Event Center at Quechan Resort Casino in Yuma, Arizona.

“I’m really excited for this opportunity to work as the color commentator for M-1 Global - USA on UFC Fight Pass,” VanZant said in the release. “I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity to showcase my skills on the other side of the microphone.”

VanZant, 24, has established herself as one of the most well-known UFC fighters outside of the Octagon in part to her multimedia ventures that included successful runs on the reality TV competition shows Dancing with the Stars and Chopped, as well as the publication of her autobiography, which was released last April.

In VanZant’s most recent outing, she defeated Rachael Ostovich via second-round submission at UFC Brooklyn in January.
