Presenting this fierce competition will be veteran sports broadcaster Chris Rose on play-by-play, joined by former UFC fighter Kenny Florian on color commentary. Celebrated sports anchor Molly McGrath hosts the competition with sideline reporters Alison Haislip and NASA engineer Bobak Ferdowsi going in-depth with the teams.
