The Coronavirus pandemic forced the world into taking unprecedented measures. None were spared. Rogan and the UFC were also part of that.

Considering all that we have been through this past year, it is quite normal to hope for better things to come our way with the dawn of the new decade.

However, even at this stage, it is anyone’s guess. The UFC managed to hold events on a regular basis despite such mishaps. Fight Island in Abu Dhabi was the crutch that held the promotion up.

But Rogan, UFC’s lead broadcaster for over 2 decades, refused to travel in the midst of all this turmoil. Jon Anik, Dominick Cruz, Daniel Cormier, and others took over in his absence.

Whether Rogan will be part of the UFC 257 commentary team is not known yet. But his presence undoubtedly adds a new dimension for the fans.
