UFC President Dana White has spoken up regarding the recent comments from announcer Joe Rogan. Through UFC.com, White issued the following statement:

Joe Rogan recently made an offensive statement reflecting a personal opinion that does not represent the UFC in any way. I have addressed this directly with Joe.

That is the entirety of White's statement.

Rogan came under fire last week for a negative slur towards Yahoo! Sports reporter Maggie Hendricks posted on the Underground. He later issued a public apology to Hendricks. Over the weekend, Kevin Iole at Yahoo! Sports had this to say regarding the situation:

Rogan's words were extraordinarily inappropriate, particularly as the very public mouthpiece of a billion-dollar company. The UFC needed to make a strong, public condemnation of Jackson's behavior and Rogan's choice of words, but has thus far failed to do so.

Instead, late Thursday UFC spokeswoman Caren Bell privately called Hendricks and issued an apology. And while it is commendable that the UFC offered any kind of apology at all, it was made privately at a time when Hendricks was under heavy siege publicly because she stood up for what was right. A public apology would have meant more and carried far more weight.

sounds like DW is trying to make it go away without it getting more press

Rogan is interchangeable to the broadcasts....I'm ready for a fresh perspective.

but there are more people who wouldn't want to listen to Marilo or Frank Shamrock...



There are not many good MMA shot callers... and Rogen is one of the best. The only way they could really replacehim without a drop in quality would be to get Randy calling again or some of the other fighters. Mir did a good job with the WEC and Kenny has done a good job

but dropping rogen is a bit more complicated the dropping a ring girl because DW does not like what he said

isnt Iole one of the guys that was denied press creds at the Strikforce Diaz v Daley show?


guess what media, the same rights that give you a damn job are the same ones that protect Joe Rogans right to say someone has a c***y attitude.

From what I've seen of you on these forums, I think you might want to listen to him more.

I would like to hear Kenny Florian, he was pretty good the few times I've heard him. I like when fighters do it, they know more about whats really going on. Not saying Rogan doesn't, but fighters know more.
Bring Bas Rutten in, everyone loves him.
