Rogan Not Looking To Retire From UFC Commentary
Joe Rogan heading into 2019 was contemplating the end of his career as a broadcaster.
Now, the stand-up comedian, podcaster, and announcer has decided to stay on due to the UFC adding fighters such as Daniel Cormier to the rotation.
“I do enjoy it,” Rogan said on his podcast. “I cut way back. Cause first of all, I was doing too many of them. At one point I was doing 24 a year, it was way too many. It was like half of the weekends of the year, I was flying somewhere to go to the UFC. It was too much.
“That was before the UFC really started adding a bunch of people and it took a lot of the weight off of me.”
Rogan began in the UFC in 1997 as a backstage interviewer for a brief period, and since 2002 has been the lead color commentator first with Mike Goldberg and now with Jon Anik on the UFC’s Pay-Per-View broadcasts/
“I don’t think about retiring because I like what I do,” Rogan said. “So I don’t think about ‘oh I need ‘X’ amount of money in the bank so I’m not going to do this very much longer’. I like all that stuff.”
