IMO joe rogan is first and foremost a fan of the sport and not a Dana puppet.

if you ever see him in other videos unrelated to MMA he truly does not care about what other people think about him and will not censor himself or filter his opinions to sound appropriate and meet the expectations of anybody

he is a true ambassador of the sport, and and an outspoken individual to say the least

War Joe Rogan

just to throw something crazy out there... how about we give rogan a promotion? I'm sure he does some PR aside from doing the commentary, and I'd definately keep him announcing, but how about the ufc gives this guy a little more responsibility. Few people in the sport garner the respect and have the knowledge that he has. Honestly, I feel like Rogan would do a better job at the press conferences than Dana does.. the difference between the two is that dana white at heart, is still a promoter for the ufc brand, and joe rogan is a fan of the sport all the way through. You can see the difference in how they answer the same question differently. I know that if i was in a management position for the ufc, there would be few people that i would rather speak on my behalf.

Joe is the greatest announcer in MMA. Just sucks he has to sit next to a retard who knows obsolutely nothing about the sport.

That would be cool. I wonder how well he'd do with his picks?

Anyways, I've always liked the guy. Yes, he is very arrogant, but the guy knows his stuff. Ever since the Carlos Mencia thing I have even more respect for the guy.

For anyone who hasn't seen it: Joe Rogan vs. Carlos Mencia

His Jim Brown impression is greatness. BTW..Goldberg actually is a pretty cool guy. I just think that he puts on an act while commentating. If you went to the Q&A this weekend, you saw the lighter side of Mike Goldberg.

Joe's sweet. I do think some of the things he says are a little dumb but for the most part I like him.

I think you nailed it there, its all part of Rogan and Goldberg's schtick. Goldberg asks the stupid questions that he already knows the answer to and Rogan explains it. Its their style of educating all the new fans of the sport, although for an educated fan it you can sure feel like slapping Goldie in the side of the head sometimes.

Don't get me wrong I think Rogan is a pimp. But Bas is the best announcer in MMA.

Rogan kicks ass, remember when he called out Wesley Snipes. Check out his tirade on Carlos Mencia...****** hilarious.

I also think he is a great announcer. I just don't like the way he yells everything he says. I realize that he is excited and passionate but I think he needs to calm down a bit so that we can hear him and understand him. I remember it wasn`t that long ago that he looked like he was taking a huge dump every time he said anything.

But anyway, keep up the good work Joe

I have a hard time beliving mike knows that little. I think he is there for the casual guy asking the questions they would want to know. He goes on the Bubba The Love Sponge Show alot and he talks alot different on the show and gets to show his knowledge on there. He is also funny as hell when the censors are off.

I think Joe Rogan is an awesome MMA announcer. He has knowledge of the sport, knows how to explain tactics and techniques to newer fans, and he is enthusiastic about the job

Bas is still my favorite announcer, but I will say Joe Rogan is a very very close #2. Joe knows more about fighters from outside organizations and what to expect from them when they reach the UFC. Bas wasn't always that familiar with new guys coming into Pride from smaller organizations.

Agreed. He's there to relate to the every day Joe Schmoe.

If they put two Joe Rogan's in there, it's a bit too much. They want the non-fan to watch an event and to be able to relate to someone that's asking questions. Questions give you answers and answers make the non-fan more knowledgeable about the sport.

So I actually disagree with anyone who bashes the guy.
