Joe Rogan Replaced By Randy Couture

Could we be this lucky to actually have someone who "knows" the sport inside and out? Does this mean that we don't have to listen to him try and one-up everything Goldberg says anymore? God I hope his "re-assignment" is a permanent thing.

What is this re-assignment? Is he fired or released? I hope so. Go back to Fear Factor, Joe. All he does is "rabble rabble rabble, I know PRIDE so I'm smart". He sucks. Mike Goldberg is pretty stupid but he keeps his mouth shut. And Randy Couture is awesome. He keeps his mouth shut and knows the sport just like Bas Rutten who commentated PRIDE.

Saw-ed off Rogan punked hard

I am not sure what it is. From what I heard, they didn't really elaborate. They may have done so later in the fight but things got pretty loud at my place as the fight progressed, so I couldn't be certain.

I do know that this tactic is used to informally release someone when a company doesn't want to embarrass or pay someone unemployment/severance.

I don't mind rogan. He says it like it is. And says funny stuff. Like when he said" i don't know why tra has his hands so long, it's probably not the best idea." during the tra sylvia fight. I like how he's not afraid to say the judge's are wrong when they are. Goldberg, trigg, the other pride guy, they are far worse. Sure rogan might not be gold but he's better then most.

Well, I hope you don't have withdrawls if he doesn't come back. 'Sides, Couture has got way more street cred than funny man Joe Rogan.

"Good fight, Tito. Since you just won by referee stoppage, would yo umind choking down this bull pen15 to prove you are a true champion."

Sorry, but fear factor and news radio is where he belongs.

I actually never had a problem with Joe as commentator. I guess it's because I've watched WWE and TNA for along time and all I hear is *****ing, so Joe doesn't bother me, plus I just got into the UFC world at Ultimate Fighter 1 so to me he knows alot.

you know I actually like Rogan for the simple fact that he isn't kissing the fighters asses, he speaks his mind, kinda like Charles Barkley does and thats what this world needs more off, unfortunatly like myself, that kind of thinking may have cost rogan his job.


pfft
