UFC commentator Joe Rogan There were two thoughts about his participation as a commentary team member at UFC 249 on April 18.
A few days ago, the UFC announced via their social media pages that Rogan would be a part of the PPV and the commentator looked like he would join the rest of the care. However, he was skeptical about a show being run at this national time and he did not hold back from feeling his feelings about it Joe Rogan Experience Podcast.
Rogan is grateful that at the end of the day, he didn’t have to call hard because Dana White announced that the UNFC had decided to postpone all of its upcoming events indefinitely, including UFC 249, due to the coronavirus epidemic. Rogan said he was ready to go, but he himself was concerned about the virus infection and planned to test it both before and after the incident.
“Well, it protects a lot of my thoughts. I was 75 percent ready to go. The only reason I have to worry is if I make a deal and then come in contact with other people. So what I’m going to do is if I must test it and then I have to know the results before I come back, yet you don’t know. “
White said that USFC decided to suspend UFC 249 after executives at ESPN urged them to do so, and Rogan said it was definitely a tough time for the UFC president to try to organize the event.
“I think they probably did a risk assessment and then they did a calculation on what were the downside of going against government regulation and they were probably like, ‘We can’t do this. Imagine being president of the UFC and putting all this pressure on you, and you are a very famous person. I don’t think that’s where the company got it without Dana White. I think you have to have a crazy person on the wheel. “
Well, as White prepares his Fight Island to resume MMA action, Rogan just seems happy that he didn’t have to make the tough decision to join the PPV as part of the commentary team in the ongoing epidemic.
