The color commentator is watching the fights from the front row with his wife, Jessica Ditzel. He is probably having a blast as of now as there have been five knockouts already at UFC Fight Night: Kattar vs. Emmet.

The last time Rogan wasn’t commentating for the UFC fights was when he had the ongoing controversies with Spotify. After the controversies settled down a bit, Rogan was back to rocking the crowd with his microphone skills.

Fight fans were shocked to see Rogan chilling in the audience and took to Twitter to share their reaction.
