Joe Rogan took his love for mixed martial arts to a whole another level when he joined the UFC to interview fighters and then eventually commentate on live fights. Rogan is one of the most prominent voices of the sport and will go down as a legend. Rogan did not let his fight knowledge go in vain.

In a recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience, the color commentator revealed that he used to bet on UFC fight even while he was commentating. “I used to bet on UFC even when I was commentating. I bet on it early on and I’m like this is probably not legal,” said Rogan on podcast episode #1868.

“One of my business partners would come to the fights and he would gamble. So when I stopped gambling I would just say bet. We were at like 84 percent success rate. It was so crazy,” said Rogan about his gambling days.

“It’s so illogical and it drives me crazy. And it’s one of those things that I think we’re stuck with for no good reason. It’s a bad tradition,” said Rogan while talking about the practice of cutting huge amounts of weight during fight week. According to the podcast host, it would be better for everyone if there were just more weight classes.

Rogan believes a long time of weight cutting will poorly affect the fighter’s body and might also factor in affecting their fights. According to the UFC commentator, it would be best if fighters fought at their natural weight. Do you agree with Rogan?
