UFC 280: Joe Rogan being replaced by Paul Felder
Joe Rogan is usually a staple at UFC pay-per-views, but that won’t be the case for UFC 280.
According to MMA Fighting, who confirmed the news, “Rogan decided several years ago that he no longer wanted to endure the long travel required for international shows so the UFC has rotated in a group of commentators to replace him whenever the promotion travels outside the United States.”
Instead of Rogan, fans will get the former lightweight fighter, turned broadcaster, Paul Felder.
Rogan recently skipped UFC 275 in Singapore and was replaced by Michael Bisping then.
