Funny UFC 69 Story
I was talking to my BJJ instructor about how his trip to Houston (he was working for the TSAC and approving wraps/gloves). He talked about how he met Joe Rogan and they talked about DMT and other illicits and has pictures w/ several fighters. Then he mentions that he signed the gloves of Diego and GSP and they both lost...kinda weird. He also said Diego is a very peculiar fellow...

I like Rogan - His enthusiasm for the sport, his razor wit onstage, his snapbacks at critics. He's a tough, smart Libertarian, IMO, America needs a whole lot more of his type to counter this increasingly uptight and pussified society.

Agreed, when I first started watching UFC I thought he was annoying, but he actually helped me understand a lot. We should invite him the the AM MMA forum.

Didn't know he was a joke stealer.
I don't really like him that much as a comedian, anyway. Some of his stuff is funny, but I think Comedy Central was trying to position him as a "new Dave Chappelle", which he is far from being.

Bring it, dare you, Joseph Midget.
I'll challenge the Devil himself, Joe Rogan, bahaha,.... he's cool, but he has to earn cred here.

I remember watching the Serra/Menjivar fight last summer...when I first got into MMA (how funny is that; it hasn't even been a year. It was a BJJ battle; the full fight took place on the ground. When you don't know BJJ it is easy to be totally clueless as to what they are doing. That was the first time I started to understand the details of guard, passing, etc.
I don't recall anything else specific, just the ongoing commentary. He often points out little detail mistakes that make fighters fail to finish a sub. It definitely helps. The first time I took a BJJ class, I nailed an armbar on someone. If it weren't for Joe's explanations I doubt I would have been able to do that.
Plus, his passion (ie spazzing out) seems genuinely authentic compared to Goldie's trained voice. I really dislike anyone who sounds too forced in commenting (newscasters and radio DJs bug me out).
Bring 'em in, Rogie.

I like that Mencia episode where he smashes the watermelons.
I like Rogan sometimes, and I hate him sometimes. I don't like his "too cool for school" attitude, though. He can be funny at times and is good for beginners as Beo pointed out.

Just saw the youtube clip. Damn, Rogan pwned Mencia.
I read that he got dropped from his agency for that, though.

I dont mind Joe Rogan, he seems to know his stuff, and hes probably one of the few commentators who will actually say a fight is boring when it is.
I can appreciate his honesty, and he is a really good commentator, but if they were to replace him with say, Randy Couture, or Bas Rutten, i wouldnt be too sad.
