    Joe Rogan needs to retire IMO.

    This was an amazing card with GREAT fights... I cant stand how Joe is constantly calling for the fights to be stopped when fighters are hurt trying to recover and often do.
    Its almost regularly now and I never had an issue with Rogan before to be honest. Now he plays referee, calling for fights to be stopped when the other fighter still is in it, its a championship fight dude lol.

    I am so glad DC is there because he had to comment over Rogan 2 times during this event and say the man is still fighting when Joe said "its over, stop the fight, hes done". Also, EVERY TIME a fighter gets hit clean now Rogan yells out "HES HURT!" ...no, he got hit in the face and just countered the guy in his face. Not every clean strike necessarily hurts the guy, thats a whole dif conversation.

    How many comebacks have we seen after a fighter took lots of damage? Many times. If the referee listened to JOE ROGAN those fighters wouldn't have had a chance to turn it around but him screaming out stop the fight can influence the ref just as the crowd can. Call the fight, stop playing referee or stop commentating. Thats why I am thankful they have fighters there in the booth because they know what it takes to be gritty and have the will to survive.


    Anybody not notice this or disagree feel free to comment

    I mean last night guys were getting hurt every single round it seemed, so you can't blame him for going nuts.

    Anders got dropped 4x, Holloway got stunned a handful of times, Poirier got stunned a few times, Israel got rocked 2x, Kelvin got dropped like 5x...

    Not sure how people can find something to complain about after seeing those 2 epic ass fights

    No, but these guys aren't as good or as exciting leading up to these fights as guys in the past. Both title fights didn't feel like big fights. They were fun fights, but these cans weren't a draw.

    I thought he was fine last night.

    Anik is the one that needs to go, he adds ZERO insight or emotion to the fights. Dudes a clown.

    Goldie was 100x better

    Yeah I also hate when he shouts "he's got his back" with enthusiasm like it was a knockdown and nothing happens from that position.

    He gets hung up too often on certain things and rehash them unbearably.

    I still like him tough.

    Rogan has gone downhill since that Jones and Novitzky thing in December. Only watched his show once ever since that happened.

    I think over the last few years he's really been paying more attention to CTE and other long term issues that are beginning to afflict the fighters. It doesn't seem like he can be as impartial and JUST BLEED as he used to be because of it. He's been around a long time and has seen the drop off of people like Chuck and Rich. You can only see so much before you sour to something.

    Rogan screams OH! Every time a hard shot lands. That should be reserved for only when the fighter is visibly rocked.

    Gast could have easily been stopped 2-3 times. He was trying but he was getting fucking killed.

    On a personal anecdote, when you're at cageside hearing bone and flesh colliding, the impact is way worse than on TV. IMO anyway

    He sayin "He's hurt" every time someone gets hit hard since day 1 tho. But he is still a moron, i hate that dude, but i must say he is the best commentator out there.

    Exactly. The guy is watching a totally different event than the one taking place in reality.

    How are you just noticing this now? He’s always been overboard in his commentary.

    Well they don't so it doesn't matter. Also DC has been shouting about stopping the fight recently.
