Sounds like Rogan has read the UG and regrets not calling out SAS when they were live. What Rogan fails to understand tho, is that ESPN does not WANT those hardcore toe the line commentators that Rogan prefers and wants their own MAINSTREAM hosts to cover UFC and give their outside opinon.

"It's a bad look for ESPN, it's a bad look for him, it's a bad look for the sport. There's other people that can do this. ... We have plenty of people out there who understand the sport. There's plenty of them. "I would've preferred to talk to 'DC' or Felder or you (Josh Thomson) or anybody who understands the sport," Rogan said. "I don't think it's the right way to do it."

If Joe Rogan wants to claim that SAS shouldn't talk about MMA

 

then Joe Rogan should take his own fucking medicine and not talk about politics.

Who cares 

Stephen A Smith is in your heads

That is why he is getting paid

You talking

Everyone talking

And the man only said three sentences

That's true power

I liked Smith's takes on the cheating in baseball.  He speaks bluntly, which IMO is a good contrast.

While he might not be an expert on MMA, he is a voice to garner interest in MMA in the future, and to help bring more casual sports fans over. 

Ultimately, I think he helps the sport.

you do realize the average person knows Joe Rogan more for his podcast and Fear Factor than they do for his MMA commentating right?

Basically, Joe said he doesn't want mma to be treated or viewed as a real sport. Athletes in every real sport that has fans are criticized constantly and brutally. Professional golfers have taken more direct and harsh criticism than what SAS gave after that fight. It's pretty ridiculous to act like these guys are beyond reproach. Cowboy offered nothing in the fight and saying that isn't anything other than the truth. Are we just supposed to say McGregor is so fucking awesome that he was able to win in that fashion? Or maybe, we can be objective and say McGregor looked good, but Cowboy shit the bed and offered zero resistance. If he'd even landed 2 strikes this would be different but he didn't even hit Conor.

Not really the point he was making....he was saying fighting is different to sports where you dont get knocked the fuck out when you lose.And commentating on the sport like it is football isnt going to work. Most fighters will likely cold shoulder this guy over those comments about cerrone who broke his nose and orbital in that 40 sec fight.

Steven A Smith would have been banned from here a few years back for fighter bashing, if he said on here, what he did during that piece. Oh, how times have changed.

Funny you say that, wonder how many 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 76th accounts are littering this place because of saying things like that.....
