When rumors began surfacing that the UFC was to be sold for around $4 billion, longtime UFC commentator Joe Rogan announced that he would likely be leaving the promotion.
“I signed for at least one more year. I was on the fence man, I just do too much shit. I’m too fucking busy. I don’t know if I’m doing myself or all the other things I do a disservice,”
“I had a conversation with Dana, we had a bunch of conversations. What I decided to do was no more international travel. No more flying across the planet.”
“I was really convinced it was over. [UFC 196], that night was so crazy and so chaotic. I walked out of there like, “How can I not do this? I’m sitting right there cageside for the craziest shit in the sporting world ever!”
“I don’t want anyone to think that I don’t appreciate it or that I don’t know how lucky I am or that I don’t think it’s an amazing jobs. I definitely do. I’m almost too lucky, I have too many amazing jobs.”
