Adams stated, “I love working with Roger Krahl and AFC. They have such a rich history and tradition in the sport. They draw upon a region in Florida that is absolutely saturated with quality fighters. That allows them to deliver predominant shows to an ever-growing fan base. If you look at how many fighters they have put in the UFC you know you are watching future stars of the sport whenever you go to an AFC event. I am thrilled to be calling the action alongside Junior Dos Santos and Tyron Woodley!”
