Goldberg hoping to return on January 26
UFC commentator Mike Goldberg has revealed he expects to return to microphone duties on January 26, shooting down internet rumours that his health scare was of a sinister nature.
Goldberg missed the final event of 2012, pulling out of UFC 155 as Jon Anik stepped into his seat. President Dana White merely stated: "Goldie's out for a while," adding "and I don't know when he'll be back".
MMA Fighting claims the illness was linked to his respiratory system, but he is believed to be on the mend following a bout of treatment. Goldberg's condition was certainly not - as speculated on the internet - linked to drugs.
He said: "I'm doing well. Those rumours out there are not true. I'm dealing with a complicated health issue but feeling better and hoping to be back to 100 per cent by January 26 (UFC on Fox 6). See you soon."
