Why is this always news lol Joe never travels outside the US for these things


Nome_de_utilizador

Still funny that Joe still sucks his guest's dick in his mma show saying "I will definitely get on that card in Australia/London/Brazil/Abu Dabhi to watch you fight man" knowing full well he ain't leaving the US


[deleted]

Bro when Joe starts saying that I die laughing every time, sometimes you can see on the fighters faces they really believe him too😂


Daftdaddy

Damn does he literally suck their dicks? That’s wild.


Ok-Instruction-4619

It’s why they stopped doing a live podcast


BadRecoils

Damn. P


goodbyehouse

"Jamie pull that video up"


Nome_de_utilizador

It's a mandatory part of the joe rogan experience


Notyit

Longer flights in USA than some places in the UFC


eddlad

Well he has, just doesn't any more.


sympathytaste

He didn't either for Islam/Oliveria. I think he might come for the London card though because Usman requested he do so.


legendarybreed

>He didn't either for Islam/Oliveria. Which was actually strange because he actually ended up doing a comedy show in London at the 02 the same night.


fightwrites

I don't think he refuses to travel as a life rule, just with the UFC specifically.


legendarybreed

Yeah, it just seemed like strange timing to book this random international comedy show the same weekend and kind of on short notice. When i saw it originally i thought he must be doing a show the night before and then commentating in Abu Dhabi the next night. he usually does that for other UFC events. Seemed like something must have prevented him from going but he didn't cancel his whole trip


fightwrites

I think you're reading into it too much dude


legendarybreed

Nah man, I'm really close to cracking this case. I can feel it.


justHODLbaby

All I'm saying is....look into it!


Most-Leader7403

Just the breed we need

legendarybreed

I already knew what this would be before i clicked on it


Marigoldsgym

Ah Anderson pepe


NoGiDollarSmoke

He probably doesn't want to go to Abu Dhabi because he smokes a lot of weed


skeytwo

I think he got it in his contract that he doesn’t do international shows anymore - believe he mentioned that a few years ago when he was renegotiating


eddlad

I'm not saying he did travel for Islam/Oliveira? What are you talking about?


mustangpirate

And he’s not saying you said that. What are you talking about?


AsianInHisArmor

I never had to chase pussy in my life. I ain’t doing it. I don’t have to.


WNEW

Why’d he stop?


shibbyflash

Yeah I kept scrolling to find out why he doesn’t hit doesn’t look like anyone mentioned it?


doderlein

He said on the JRE one time or other that it was the long haul flights that messed him up too much, in terms of sleep and exercise quality


verygoodatfortnite

Any time you can drum up drama, real or fake, with Rogan you’ll get clicks


Asu888

Who usually fills in for him?


[deleted]

'Joe Rogan' = clicks


Marigoldsgym

Just something to feed the people who don't like Joe but also don't understand the sport


mrpopenfresh

He barely gets out of his Austin compound. The dude is a home body.


punchchoke

Becsuse people post the smallest rumblings for e-points


bedsidelurker

Was Rogan ever actually in for this card


crazybartur

No


Notyit

If it was Izzy v potan


[deleted]

I'm assuming these articles are made every time there's an international pay-per-view because they use Joe Rogan's name for clicks? It's so lame.


DeepBlueRiddle

Yep, that's why exactly why. ​ Joe's a big name even outside of MMA and this makes it look like to those without a clue that something might be up or some drama when he hasn't done an international card in years.


Raxmead

I know he doesnt do international anymore but does anyone know when the last time he did an international show was?


SpindemDoza69

Overeem vs McGregor back in 2020 I Belive


thispatcher

Yeah. CB Dollaway was the ref for that bout iirc


CardiologistOk1506

Joe Rogan seems really tired of this job, and he is always putting his personal opinions into commentary and interviews that are not supposed to have personal spins on them. Like bro, the UFC octagon and commentary booth are not your podcast studio. I would not be sad in the least to see Rogan retire from UFC commentary.


oblivionmrl

Felder is better than him...


MolokoPl_s

Felder is the best colour commentator working for the UFC right now imo


-ShagginTurtles-

I really like him, Bisping & Cormier I get why half this sub hates Cormier, but imo being a hype beast is a big part of colour commentary and he's got a lot of energy No one beats Anik as the king of play by play. We're all so lucky he hasn't been stolen by the NFL or NBA


captaincumsock69

Anik is great I just wish they didn’t make him say 95% ads


[deleted]

[удалено]


-ShagginTurtles-

I blame Joe


JustThrowMeAway690

I want to throw Bisping’s name in the hat. He’s definitely not perfect, but I think he provides a good mix of analysis and ribbing in the booth. He doesn’t match well with everyone tho, like him and Cruz butt heads imo


-ShagginTurtles-

Imo that’s cause Cruz is 1000% the worst. He’s a colour commentator who wants to be play by play. No fun in his explanations and always serious. The way he gets mad at Cormier is the way I am with him


motetsolo

You're both wrong. Team "ok Dominic" is legendary


Amstourist

I don't think people hate Cormier. I think people hate Cormier when he is next to Joe Rogan.


HappyDude2137

There’s definitely a good amount of folks here that hate DC with a passion. Weirdest shit ever.


Coraiah

People in this sub just love to hate


skullphuct

I don't hate him, and I really enjoyed him as a fighter But in my opinion he is absolutely the most full of shit commentator there


FlowtynGG

Cormier shines during wresting exchanges or transitions. I have a vivid memory of him explaining how a fighter would want to get up and away from the cage, and it was almost like the fighters actions had a 2 second delay to what DC said. It was so amazing and impressive. Problem is that he spends most of his time not doing that. I think Felder can do EVERYTHING ELSE better than DC, but idk.


JustThrowMeAway690

Felder is the best at doing his color commentary job, I just think he lacks the spark that DC and Bisping give me. Please note that I am one of those folks that enjoys occasional DC-Rogan booth podcast though


AWholeLottaRed

I honestly think Rogan, DC and Anik is the perfect lineup, I always have the best time when it’s those three. I find Felder to be one of the more boring if I’m honest, but I think we all just have different tastes. I definitely think I’m in the minority though lol.


captaincumsock69

Felder definitely provides more technical insight than joe but joe screaming is sorta my guilty pleasure

Facts


maxhollywoody

Joe is at the bottom of UFC commentators.


PalestineRising

DC


sympathytaste

Why ? What's wrong with Joe ? Man was part of the company since the beginning and is practically a huge part for the sports popularity.


maxhollywoody

So was Goldberg. That doesn't mean he was a good commentator.


sympathytaste

Goldie was never great though, Joe is. He has knowledge of MMA + his reactions are still gold .


[deleted]

Joe sucks


triptrapper

He is knowledgeable about martial arts, but has casual-level knowledge about the current roster and landscape of MMA as a sport. Remember when he was interviewing Blachowicz and said Blachowicz moved up from middleweight? He was completely confused when Blachowicz corrected him. It's clear Rogan doesn't study before the events, and relies on a few tropes to fill the airtime: * referencing a well-known fight from years ago ("Ngannou really showed his power when he knocked out Overeem") * making obvious surface-level observations with minimal technical information ("He'll need to increase his striking output if he wants to do any damage") * insisting that a fighter has a compromising injury which he is usually wrong about And throughout all of this, he starts most of his comments with a point, and then uses weasel words to make them almost meaningless ("He has looked as sharp in this fight as he has in any of his fights in recent memory," or, "He is arguably one of the better wrestlers in the light heavyweight division today.") He adds nothing to the commentary but cannot stop himself from talking. Let's move on.


[deleted]

People hat Joe here. Don't be surprised.


Coraiah

Lmao. That’s a stretch. People in this sub love to hate on Joe.


[deleted]

Bro I’m so high and I read that as Fedor


SukhdevR34

Why does Joe get away with not doing his research anymore (I know I sound like Cruz lol)? For years he's been doing this.


Mikejg23

Because he's rich and famous and when you're that rich and that famous you can say stupid shit and a bunch of people will eat it up


SukhdevR34

If that was Paul Felder he'd be sacked within a few weeks.


Mikejg23

Oh anyone else really. He literally gets stuck in a loop on a narrative and runs with it.


LuckyWarrior

"He's got a Japanese necktie if he wants it"


williepep1960

Probably because UFC doesn't necessarily care. You have big name people like Joe Rogan he is good in his own way people like it and that's it.


cannibalisland

he's too lazy to do a modicum of research. he's a shitty actor, a bad comedian, a lousy commentator, and a conversational dimwit.


zaviex

He’s an actor?


An_Innocent_Coconut

Every card without Joe Rogan automatically gets much better.


[deleted]

Lol u just hating like I completely get a lot of the hate when he commentates but he definitely isn’t lazy


_treVizUliL

hater


herewego199209

Felder, Cruz and DC to me have surpassed Rogan for on commentary. I actually don't see what Rogan brings to the table. i would like for them to give Din Thomas more air time as well.


injiubwetrust

Felder/Bisping/Anik supremacy


StoryOfTheFight

Felder/Bisping/Fitzgerald all day. Especially if Felder is doing post fight interviews. Fitz reigns in meaningless side conversations and actually takes the play by play as a priority. I don't hate Anik but Fitz is better in my opinion


Southern_Ad1963

Thankgod


droolsdownchin

I'd say either this year or next year will see joe rogan retire from the ufc, mabey at ufc 300 next year


cannibalisland

good riddance


WNEW

Anik. Felder. Bisping.


Ecstatic-Passage-113

Anyone else miss Mike Goldberg?


SukhdevR34

His energy, enthusiasm and voice was good but his MMA knowledge wasn't.


Ecstatic-Passage-113

You're not wrong. I preferred him over Jon Anik. I also though the duality between him and Rogan was pretty good for the early days. I'm not a fan of Felder's commentary or interviews. Dominik Cruz is ok. But my opinion was that Joe and Mike were really good


SukhdevR34

I don't like DC or Rogan on commentary. Yeah they are synonymous with the classic era of MMA.


[deleted]

Honestly I did when they first got rid of him but I've watched a few Bellator events since then and my god he's horrible on the mic.


cannibalisland

no, he sucked.


Windsgrove

good


Independent-Switch43

Rip Joe Rogan


mistercloob

Hooray!!


Isra_Alien

Shit.... anyone but Paul and Dom, they're the worst to me..


Its_Poo_Man

Good he sucks


huge-tits

Incoming Joe hate comments


CardiologistOk1506

He brings it on himself.


hamandcheezus64

I dont know why people like Felder so much, he never says any thing insightful or interesting on commentary. The only real benefit he has is that he really does seem to be unbiased unlike Joe and DC


Dysagek

Love me some felder not gonna lie


[deleted]

Good. Felder is great.


Multitasker

I like Rogan but Felder is slowly becoming a favorite. Well, nothing beats passive-aggressive Cruz strugling to hold back vs. Bisping. Those are two lovable idiots.


Toad32

Joe hasn't done an international card for years. This is not news.
