Joe Rogan is about as synonymous with the UFC as the President Dana White is with the brand. However, the end could be near for Rogan and his role as color commentator for the UFC as he shared the news on his JRE podcast.

UFC flyweight champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson was a guest on Rogan’s latest podcast and the subject came up (transcribed by Fight State):

Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson asked Rogan:

“How long do you see yourself commentating for the UFC?”

Joe Rogan replied:

“I don’t know. I don’t know. 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.”

What do you think of Rogan’s thoughts to split ways with the UFC? Are there any good replacements you think could fill the shoes for Rogan?
