Rogan Live Commentary Helped UFC 169’s Clint Hester ‘Not Blow His Wad’

UFC ringside commentator, Joe Rogan, is the best in the business.

His insightful and technical breakdowns of fights have been educating fans for years on the action happening inside the cage.

I always wondered if his, sometimes instructional, commentary ever made the ears of the fighter’s he’s talking about and according to UFC 169’s Clint Hester, they have.

From an interview with MMAMAnia.com’s Michael Stets:

“Actually, this time I heard Joe Rogan. He helped me back off and not blow my wad. In the middle of the fight he was like ‘he should back off and not blow his wad.’ So I said alright, let me take a step back and open up another window.”

Hester went on to win his preliminary card bout via unanimous decision.

  1. UFC 84 Forever says:

    That’s what I would be listening for if I were in the cage, Rogan’s words. He has some good insight when he’s not delivering biased commentary.

    • This guy says:

      Dude, Rogan is nothing if not biased… listen to his commentary for the Jones and Gus fight or the Lawler and Rory fight…. He does that often…

  2. Chris says:

    Biased or not, he’s an absolute wizard regarding technique. He’s a real student of the game.

  3. Cory says:

    I’d like to see him compete in tae kwon do again or a BJJ tournament.

    • UFC 84 Forever says:

      Yeah I would have liked to see a younger Rogan in the Octagon too! He could have had a pretty good run honestly.

      • Liam says:

        I’ve heard him talk about him really disliking the stress of his tae kwon do bouts in the past, also he was really worried about taking strikes and getting punchy, so much so that he stopped all sparring, i think he just does bag work now. Would be great to see him rolling.

        • UFC 84 Forever says:

          Yeah I’ve heard the same and he does seem really concerned for a lot of athletes for the same reason. Still think he could have been a real force, good on him for knowing what he wanted though. It really would be great to see him in BJJ tournaments, yeah.

  4. Tea Dea Herrera says:

    As a Fan of MMA Joe has provided in depth knowledge to what he is witnessing thus educating me and allowing me to enjoy the sport more. Would love to see him coach a TUF Series
