Joe Rogan thinking about leaving the UFC in August

|

Longtime UFC commentator Joe Rogan said on the most recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast that he might leave the UFC once his contract is up in August.

Rogan, who has been the voice of the UFC such a long time, is tired of doing the same thing over and over which is a personal thing that he does not like to do in his life.

Thus, a big change to the promotion could becoming in 2016.

“My contract’s up in August. I might leave in August. It’s possible. I like doing shit that scares me. I like taking chances, and I like walking away from things,” Rogan said, via Fight State. “I’m not a big fan of doing the same shit over and over again. I love it, it’s not that I don’t love it. I just like doing a lot of other shit, too.

Rogan started with the promotion back in 1997 as an interviewer at UFC 12: Judgement Day in Dothan, Alabama, before eventually becoming a color commentator for the promotion.

Rogan was later joined by Mike Goldberg on commentary and called all of the UFC events until the UFC started to expand (more events) with their deal with FOX Sports.

Now, Rogan and Goldberg calls all of the pay-per-view events as well as the events on FOX.

Do you think Rogan will leave the promotion or stay? Let us know.
