Watch: Joe Rogan uses a “racist slur” for Jon Jones during live commentary

Joe Rogan is one of the prominent commentators in the UFC. Here is a throwback of the video when he called a UFC Hall of Famer a "black guy"

Joe Rogan and Jon Jones

The name Joe Rogan is well known in the MMA community. The 54 years old is one of the oldest commentators in the UFC. Rogan joined UFC back in 1997 and has continued his journey with the promotion throughout all these years.

It will be underrated to say that Rogan is the voice of UFC. Rogan is known for his exceptionally detailed commentary of UFC bouts. He was one of the first-ever commentators who was passionate about the sport and had great knowledge of wrestling.

In 2008, Rogan along with fellow commentary partner Mike Goldberg was covering the light heavyweight bout between Jon Jones and Andre Gusmao. As the fight started, Goldberg as usual introduced Jones as the fighter with black trunks and Gusmao as the fighter with white trunks. After that, Rogan added his own comment and introduced fighters by the color of their skin as black and the white guy. ” Or black guy Jones..white guy Gusmao,” said Rogan.

This comment by Rogan wasn’t intended to offend anybody and was particularly a joke. There was no such negative outrage regarding this particular remark as most of the MMA fans took it in the right way and laughed it out.

Immediately after Rogan made that remark, Goldberg humorously added that he wasn’t the person who said that statement. ” That was said by Joe Rogan,” said Goldberg and continued to laugh alongside Rogan. This particular instance remains as one of the most famous and humorous moments in UFC commentary history.

The joke made by Rogan was also taken rightly by the fighter as Jones never felt offended by that. The former light heavyweight champion has always shown his respect and has a great relationship with Rogan.
