To, the original poster: How can something so insignificant and miniscule bother someone so much? I think this is when you should look inward and find out what is really bothering you. You obviously have either low self-esteem or there is a chip on your shoulder. Let it go brother.

Agreed.

Joe is the chip on my shoulder, it's just one of those things that gets under my skin and takes away from the UFC experience. It goes back to Joe's early days when he acted like he wrote the book on MMA but spent the entire fight screwing up the facts. No I always expect the worst from him, then the other night he went and outdid himself and it put me over the edge. I don't care who likes him, I never will.

Also my next big picture will be American Gangster with Denzel Washington and Cuba Gooding about the drug trade in Harlem during the 70s. It's due out this year.

If you know Joe's personality outside of UFC/Fear Factor you'd know that he wouldn't give a shit about what the fighters think about what he says. Obviously he knows people are probably telling Heath what he was saying. EDIT: Oh yeah, just wanted to say that Heath wouldn't confront Joe about it anyway because everything he said was true.

But anyway, I like the way he does his job. He is ballsy and says what we all say sitting at home on the couch. It's better than some sugar-coated bullshit that comes out of other commentators' mouths (especially in other sports).



Rogan is badass, it's not his fault Herring looked horrible during his fight. And if you or Heath doesn't like what he said about the fight, well, go cry. Because like chris here says it's his job to say what he sees and feels (and he does a damn good job at it, almost as good as Bas).

Personally I think that the UFC was trying to send a message to PRIDE fans and UFC bashers. IMO, and totally specualting, I wouldn't be surprised if the UFC brass told Rogan to tear into Heath a little bit (if he was loosing) to try and give their HW division a little more credibility. Just my opinion, so flame away...



Highly doubt it considering they just got an awesome Pride HW, Mirko. It wouldn't make sense to spend that much money on a fighter and then try to discredit all he has done by saying Prides HW Division isn't any good.

herrings did a crappy job. He needs to train with chuck or someone with take down defense. Don't want to fight on the ground then do let it go there!

Pride nutthuggers are just flaming Rogan cause he pointed out that herrings was doing a shitty job.

Rogan does a great job I don't care what anyone thinks.

Because I'm going to anyway. He was definitely at his worst last night during the Herring-O'Brien fight. Luckily his favorites tend to get a good beating (see GSP/Miller or any Joe Riggs fight) but last night O'Brien was dominating Heath and Rogan spent the whole fight making me cringe. Even towards the end when Goldberg was saying "Herring is going to have to go for the finish if he wants to win this one" or comments of that nature Joe kept jumping all over him basically saying "no way man, he could never do that". I'm sick and tired of Rogan acting like he is more or less cornering guys from the commentary booth. He's just lucky the fighters don't get to hear the commentary or he would likely have gotten popped in the mouth a couple of times in his post fight interviews.



Yeah but when he gets stuck with a lame fight he tries his best to at leat make is sound intresting.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, "at least he's a true fan", "he does his best", etc.

I don't like his style because he is biased based on things like who he is friends with or knows personally. Look at all the lead up to UFC 67. Joe Rogan basically refused to shut up about Lutter. Before everyone starts to say things like "he was just giving his opinion" or "he just wanted to make the fight seem more competitive" keep in mind that to the casual fan Joe Rogan is supposed to be one of the top MMA experts in North America and a UFC insider so at teh very least he could ground his opinions in reality.

Here's a challenge, go back and watch Georges St. Pierre vs. Jason Miller and tell me that I'm wrong about Joe Rogan.
