White Squashes Rumors on Rogan Departure
Rogan can find comfort in knowing Dana has his back and he has his job with the promotion for as long as he wants. Boss and longtime friend of commentator Joe Rogan, Dana White shot down rumors that his buddy might leave the UFC.
White recently told The Fight Network via MMA Weekly, "How you could make shit like that up is pretty fucking amazing to me." White then went on to say, "There are some things I’m working on for 2017, as far as the broadcast goes, but that story (about Joe Rogan being removed) is a complete and total lie," he said. "Rogan will be here as long as Rogan wants to be here. He’s the best to ever do it. Rogan is the best ever, in my opinion."
White was not as complimentary about Rogan’s broadcast partner Mike Goldberg, and while he didn’t speak about Goldberg’s job security directly he did offer this quote that could spell out the departure of Goldberg or at least an addition to the current two man team, "This has been my dream to assemble this dream team of commentating and I’ve wanted this guy for years and I’m working on it and it’s going to happen," White said.
White did not say who he was targeting but there are already a few names swirling around the air.
