What Does Dana White Think Of Joe Rogan’s Success?
UFC President Dana White has shared his thoughts on the success of color commentator Joe Rogan.
Rogan has served as a color commentator for the UFC since 2002. He made his first appearance as a backstage interviewer for the UFC all the way back in February 1997. Rogan’s success both in the UFC and out of it has grown exponentially since that time.
On September 1, Rogan started his massive deal with Spotify. As part of the deal, the live version of The Joe Rogan Experience has become a Spotify exclusive. The deal is reportedly worth over $100 million.
White took to his Twitter account to congratulate Rogan on scoring such a deal.
Congrats @joerogan! What you have accomplished over the last 15 or so years has been amazing. I am so happy for you and blown away by what you have built. Kick some mother fuckin ass on @Spotify my brother!!! pic.twitter.com/GsG1fR4AIP

“Congrats Joe Rogan! What you have accomplished over the last 15 or so years has been amazing. I am so happy for you and blown away by what you have built. Kick some mother f*ckin ass on Spotify, my brother!!!”
Rogan has seen such success over the years that he’s reduced his UFC schedule significantly. The UFC color commentary ace is usually only on duty for pay-per-view events unless it’s internationally. For some of the events that Rogan doesn’t attend, he hosts a Fight Companion session with the likes of Brendan Schaub and Eddie Bravo.
At UFC 252, Rogan was at the helm doing color commentary for Daniel Cormier’s final pro MMA fight. With the UFC reportedly targeting Abu Dhabi as the location for UFC 253 and 254, Rogan may be in for a lengthy break from the role. The UFC has yet to confirm reports of the location for those events.
