But how many people actually buy it...
And I'm fairly certain that the judges are not the ones buying the feed.

He does change his opinion a lot, though. I think Rogan is 90% great commentator, 10% bad/weird/inconsistent/biased commentator.
Either way, as I'm sure we all know, the judges don't make calls based on what Joe wants, so Nate's comment about it is... well, it's either "out there", in a way that he doesn't literally mean he lost because of Joe, but was just making a point that Joe's commentary was biased, or he actually does think that, in which I think he's smoked a bit too much weed.
I have to give Rogan some slack; this type of biased commentating is prevalent in mainstream sports.
In case you've never heard Joe Buck commentate a Yankees game or an Eli Manning game; its pretty much as bad as the Rogan stuff.
All sports have biased commentators. And depending on whether or not they are backing "your" favorite will influence your perception on that commentator. I [expletive] hate Chris Collingsworth calling some NFL games, yet like Joe, 90% of the time he is on point.
For me its simple, there are just some fighters out there that need to make excuses when the lose, i.e. Tito, BJ when he lost to GSP the first time, Varner when he lost to Henderson and finally Diaz now. IMO they all sound like idiot's, take the lose and grow from it.
