One of the more annoying things on the internet is when people make stuff up and report it as news because it's possible that it could happen

A good example is a recent article by nutcase Rich Bergeron suggesting that Rogan was leaving the UFC:


.However, chatter coming into the Fight News Unlimited offices point to more than just "unspecified previous obligations" preventing Rogan from lending his comic voice to the Pay-Per-View broadcast, and his absence may not be temporary.
Fight News Unlimited received information from a reliable source recently pointing to a possible Carlos Mencia-esque rift between Rogan and UFC President Dana White. No, Dana White's not stealing Rogan's jokes, but rumor has it that White recently mandated that there be absolutely no mention of Randy Couture's name in any future UFC broadcasts. Rogan has been outspoken about Couture and the impact of Captain America's departure on the UFC and the sport of MMA.



Joe Rogan posted today at The Underground that the rumors are "bullshit," and went into more detail on his blog.


There's been a lot of goofy articles written on the internet lately about me missing the UFC card in Montreal this weekend, speculating all sorts of silly reasons why I'm not going to be there, so I figured it would be a good idea if I cleared it up here. The only reason I'm not going to be there is because of a family obligation.
I'm certainly not upset at the UFC, and I'm not quitting to start doing commentary for a rival organization. I've also heard some ridiculous shit about me having massive fallout with the UFC president Dana White, which couldn't be further from the truth. Dana is a very good friend of mine, and in the 7 years I've known him we've never even had a single disagreement.

Some idiot on Sherdog posted about it to get more traffic to his website. I guess his reptuation is shot now, and I hope he loses a ton of money when no one visits his shitty site anymore.

MG just sits there and puts on his Captain Obvious suit everytime a punch is thrown, some shoots for a take down, etc.
"He's going for a take down here!"

Oh NO DUH MIKE!

Probably someone making false rumors, as noted above, based on Rogan not working UFC 83 due to a prior commitment (Kenny Florian will fill in).

Joe Rogan is good for the UFC. He knows alot about the fighters, and trains MMA. This results in him know what the fighters are trying to do during a fight. He does say some things that may annoy people, but no one can be perfect. It is such a fast paced environment that keeping up with the action you are bound to say something off the wall. There aren't too many people out there that could do better than Joe anyway. I hope he continues for a long time.
