The catalogue of offensive and stupid errors by Reebok has taken it’s toll on fighters and fans alike. Dana White described the deal as ‘a home run,’ but does Joe Rogan agree?
UFC color commentator Joe Rogan revealed just yesterday that he may be leaving the UFC in August, although the reasons behind this potential departure are still unclear. Having worked with his broadcast buddy Mike Goldberg for 10 years now, Rogan has become an integral part of the UFC’s global product.
With that set to possibly come to an end by next Summer, it leads us to wonder why the veteran commentator is thinking of leaving the UFC. Perhaps the Zuffa brass aren’t happy with how freely Rogan talks in the media, or in his ever popular podcast show.
The UFC is notorious for putting gagging orders on fighters and employees, as well as trying to spin potentially rotten apples. Case in point; The Reebok deal. The shambolic and often offensive mistakes made by the sports apparel giant since their partnership with the UFC has been lambasted in the media.
After learning that fighters would be losing massive sponsorship checks due to the stringent provisos of the deal, fans were already looking at the negatives, then came the plethora of pathetic errors.
UFC president Dana White is either very confused, or perhaps he isn’t telling the truth when he told reporters the Reebok deal had been a home run. Clearly no-one shares the same opinion, but we haven’t heard much from the lead commentator Joe Rogan on the matter.
