    After Vitor Belfort was knocked out by Lyoto Machida at UFC 224, the former champion announced his retirement from the sport. But, after a year away from MMA it was announced in late February that the 42-year-old had signed with ONE Championship.

    Since then, there has been little to no talk about when Belfort will make his debut. He did ask for a fight with Roy Jones Jr. However, the veteran still awaits a fight in the Asian-based promotion. When he does indeed fight, ‘The Phenom’ wants UFC commentator, Joe Rogan in his corner.

    “Joe Rogan and I made our UFC debuts on the same night. I became the youngest fighter to ever win (in the) UFC. And Joe embarked on his incredible career as the voice of the UFC,” Belfort wrote on his Instagram. “We also share the same respect for ONE Championship. @yodchatri and his team @onechampionship are changing the game for fighters and fans. @joerogan, I would like to formally invite you to be my cornerman in my first ONE Championship fight. I admire your dedication to the sport, and I would love to have that knowledge, and that voice, in my corner.”

    Joe Rogan has yet to respond.

    Rogan don't go international bro. UFC couldn't even throw him enough money to do it. Too busy doing DMT while watching animal attack videos and running hills with Marshall.

    No it's fucking stupid. First he needs anxiety dogs to walk him to the cage now he needs Rogan in his corner. All between his studies at Stanford (is that bs over)? Just no Vitor. Just no. Barely a legend anyway.

    How does BJPenn.com still exist? And why?

    Joe hasn't cornered a fight since Bravo beat Royler. Not sure he would have spoken though, or if he was in the corner. Pretty sure he was there..? Asking Rogan to corner him to launch his new roid Masters division career is strange, shameless self-promotion.

    Can you imagine Rogan in somebody's corner?

    Yep, unless they really like his comedy on singapur he is actually gonna be losing money fucking around with Vitor instead of doing shows or the podcast for a few days.

    The good old days when Vitor would starch dudes and then 20 Brazilian guys would run into the cage and shout "JIU-JI-TSU" despite there being no BJJ used.

    Why not? Getting to a corner a legend isn’t an opportunity that comes along often. I say go for it if he wants to.

    I'd watch the show to see how Rogan does more than to see Vitor. (I enjoyed his fighting when he was prime.)

    Rogan usually knows when a fighter is at risk of getting in big trouble and how to get out of it. He should be a great corner.

    People are awesome at trying new things in their 50's with no real coaching experience totally. Question: Are Joe and Vitor even friends? He's never even been invited to JRE. More weird, random Vitor shit.

    Let’s pretend it’s 1998 so have Joe challenge Vitor to bite off a chickens head while having the rooster cut and TRTd

    Rogan is a once in a lifetime corner man.

    Yes he should corner him. I don't see a problem with it. Seems harmless to me.
