Their ability to listen in on the coaches is interesting.

It's distinctly different than notification of an injury as it allows insight into game plans.

Agreed. I suspect cornermen are not allowed to carry personal communication devices or at least access them while the fight is taking place. But that's just a guess.

I don't think it's a bad question and one I oftentimes dwell about, but if you really think about it everything mentioned or even thought of during the fight is basically public info.

What I don't get sometimes however is when he starts borderline blatantly yelling out actual advice to a fighter...

Exactly. Rogan was just doing his job, presenting what happened to the fans. If Bendo kicked and buckled Josh's knee, would Rogan have to pretend that Josh isn't having trouble with his leg? Same thing.

I want to know how Josh broke his thumb. Did Bendo bend it back to get him off him? Small joint manipulation was illegal even in the earliest UFC's. Not saying it happened however but I'm curious.

I agree 100%.

Some will get butthurt and pretend that scenario would never present itself but it certainly could. And I guarantee it has in past fights, giving the opposing fighter an unfair advantage, especially if his opponent is doing a good job hiding the injury.
