Christian O'Connell joins BT Sport's UFC presenting team from February 4.

BT Sport have announced that Absolute Radio DJ Christian O'Connell has joined the broadcasters' Ultimate Fighting Champion presenting team.

The presenter of BBC Radio Five Live's 'Fighting Talk' will take on the role from February 4 and will present show 'UFC: Beyond The Octagon' on Tuesday nights.

"I'm a massive UFC fan and moving from my couch where I currently mumble to myself during fights, to a studio makes perfect sense," said O'Connell.

"UFC, like BT Sport is growing bigger every day and it's an exciting time to be part of that."

O'Connell will be joined by Gareth A Davies and Caroline Pearce in the team.
