A very Vitor Belfort thing to do. Have no idea why, but really want this to happen. Joe Rogan doing Joe Rogan things in some far off Asian land, live at an ONE Championship event.
Vitor would mess around and make a crazy request like this. It’s 2019, why can’t one of the UFC’s most well known personalities corner a fighter in a different promotion? Let’s have some fun.
Let the Fight Gods teleport Mr. Joe Rogan to the corner of Belfort’s first fight with ONE Championship. The MMA world now needs to see Rogan as a corner man for Belfort, yelling out instructions as Old/New Vitor machine gun punches some soul.
“Joe Rogan and I made our UFC debuts on the same night. I became the youngest fighter to ever win a UFC ____, and Joe embarked on his incredible career as the voice of the UFC.
We also share the same respect for ONE Championship. @yodchatri and his team @onechampionship are changing the game for fighters and fans.
@joerogan, I would like to formally invite you to be my cornerman in my first ONE Championship fight. I admire your dedication to the sport, and I would love to have that knowledge, and that voice, in my corner.”
To be honest might not even need the actual Rogan physically there if this idea gets nixed. Just utilize some holographic technology and beam the image of Rogan into Belfort’s corner. Play a track of Rogan’s greatest UFC calls as a way to hype up Vitor. Hell depending on the matchmaking, Vitor Belfort and ONE may be able to get away with Jamie pulling up the best of JRE for the week and letting that blast into the cage.
Make hologram Joe become a thing. Blow out your budget for this ONE Championship.
