The first announce team for DWTNCS is rapper/actor Snoop Dogg and future UFC Hall Of Fame member Urijah Faber. Much like the yet to be announced commentary team, the duo of Faber and Snoop will perform the commentary on site at the UFC Gym.

"I'm a big fan of UFC and [am] looking forward to joining the team to bring my unique take on all the action," Snoop Dogg said to ESPN. "Y'all in for a brand-new experience with Dogg on the mic."

Neither Faber or Snoop have commentated on any MMA events in the past, this show will mark both of their commentary debuts.

UFC President Dana White, who is also the official promoter for the event, says that the collaboration with Snoop Dogg is something he has wanted to do for a long time.

"Snoop and I have wanted to do something together for a long time," White said. "He's a huge fight fan and wanted to call fights. This is a fun opportunity for fans to opt into SnoopCast and hear his take along with Urijah Faber on how the fights are going."

Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contenders Series 1 takes place on Tuesday, July 11 from the UFC Gym in Las Vegas, Nevada with Kurt Holobaugh and Matt Bessette headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on UFC Fight Pass.
