Found this opinion and I know a lot of people feel strongly for/against Rogan:

First, I do not hate Joe Rogan I have enjoyed his commentary for years, listen to his podcasts and find his views interesting enough to spark a conversation between strangers,

However, for him to blast Cain by asking him to repeat himself in English is unacceptable. Now, perhaps the UFC dropped the ball with some lame brain interpreters but Rogan should have never asked the ex-champ to do that. Lucky for him, Cain is respectable and didn't tell him to fuck off which brings me to the point that Rogan needs to step aside.

Lately, Rogan has let his bias shine on every PPV to the point I think that he needs a mental evaluation. His head was so far up Alvarez's ass he was makin up reasons for Alvarez getting his face pieced up.

Which brings me to the conclusion that Rogan is tired and probably burning out but has to show up for the grind to support his family I think change is on the horizon for the UFC no matter what my personal views are. Feedback is encouraged

during the Case fight, I really enjoyed Rogan explaining to us why it is more difficult to fight with one eye than it is to fight with two

I'm glad he pointed that out, because I was lost.

I think Rogan got caught up in the moment. I think he thought Cain was the greatest ever. Cain doesn't have the best winning percentage in title fights. I like Rogan in commentary I don't let it get to me what he says. Maybe They can bring back the guy who commentated between blatnick and Rogan

I enjoy Rogan's passion for the sport and seeing him get excited for fights really helps build the energy during the events, but his bias can get extremely annoying. It's clear that he has his favorites and it's as if he doesn't even try to hide them. For example, every time Mighty Mouse fights, Joe simply cannot shut up about him. We get that he's one of the best fighters on the planet, but it's always obvious who Rogan is internally rooting for.

People give guys like Anik flack for being uninteresting, but at least he comes across as neutral during most fights that he commentates.

I really like Rogan, but his best quality is also his downfall at times.

It was not rude to ask him to translate. It was respectful and polite, to the fans, which is what really matters.

Rogan is really great commentator and taught me a lot about the sport when I first started watching. He is also great at keeping things entertaining even during shitty fights.

Firing Rogan would be a horrible idea and would make me less interested in watching the UFC.

The Reason Rogan suddenly (last 6 years or so) started showing bias is because the UFC tells him who to talk up and promote. I believe because they expect that kind of commentary Rogans biases have showed a lot more. Sometimes it's unbearable but he was great 10 years ago. I think the UFC ruined him the same way it's ruining itself.

Any opinion wanting Joe gone instead of Goldberg is completely invalid. Goldberg barley knows how to speak English.

Thank you. And half of what he says is what Joe said 2 minutes ago...

If any changes are made it should be getting rid of Goldberg and bringing in Bas Rutten. Always loved Rutten's commentary and personality.

I saw a fight recently, can't remember which one, but One fighter had a guy mounted. The bottom fighter turned and gave up his back. Rogan said "____ just took the back beautifully." I was just like WHAT? The guy on top just stayed on top while the guy on bottom rolled over. Not the most "beautiful" back take I've ever seen...but OK.

I will say that since the FOX shows started, his technical analysis has dropped a bit, and he tends to try to be more loud and exaggerate the action instead. He's still very good, but he's different now. Love ya, Joe.

What are you basing this on? Rogan has tackled this very topic several times on his podcast. If the UFC was telling Rogan who to talk up or what to say, he would've walked away ages ago. Joe doesn't need the paycheck. He does it because he's a fan and enjoys what he does. Any biases he may have are due to nobody but himself.

i dont usually enjoy rogans commentary, but i do think itd be a mistake if they fired him.

for people that think he should be fired, i will ask the same question that is usually asked of a sports team when their fans want their coach fired. do you think the ufc could get anyone better than him if they let him go? in my opinion, no.
