Apart from keeping the fans engaged on his ‘JRE’ podcast, the MMA community enjoys seeing Rogan on the podcast bench. He has been covering pay-per-view events for multiple years now, barely missing a show. He is a color commentator alongside Daniel Cormier and Jon Anik, who comes in as the play-by-play commentator.

However, Rogan’s presence has unfortunately reduced in recent years and he no longer covers international pay-per-views. Given his busy schedule, Rogan has now begun limiting his time on the commentary bench.
