“I’m not interested,” said famous commentator joe Rogan during a recent edition of his Fight Companion Podcast for this past Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 1 event in Phoenix. “I would take this for zero money over being in Phoenix right now. Although I would like to see those fights live and call those fights live, I’m good with 10 a year,” Joe added. “10 a year is what I like. Once a month, two months off.”
Joe Rogan confessed he thought about quitting from UFC earlier due to his obligations. Yet, Rogan still loves his job, and enjoys working it.
“Listen, man, I was thinking I was on my way out, but I still love it,” rogan sAId. “And I love it way more now because I don’t have to do it as much. And I love it way more now because we do this because we can do all of this shit-talking, have fun and be silly.”
