UFC 271 commentary team set: Joe Rogan, Daniel Cormier, Jon Anik return to booth for Adesanya vs. Whittaker 2


Joe Rogan will be back in the comment booth at UFC’s February PPV.

Sources close to the matter confirmed that Jon Anik, a veteran color commentator and Daniel Cormier, a former champion in two divisions will be joining Jon at UFC 271 at the Toyota Center Houston.

It will mark the fourth consecutive live pay-per view event featuring the voice of one the most widely-listened podcast hosts in the world. Rogan, who has been featured in a number of controversial guest interviews about the COVID pandemic and issued an apology for using a racial slur repeatedly on his podcast, has made quite the splash over recent weeks.

The main event will feature a rematch between Israel Adesanya (middleweight) and Robert Whittaker (middleweight), a bout that Anik said he is extremely excited about for MMA Fighting.

In the co-main event, Derrick Lewis will compete in front of a hometown crowd once again when he faces the surging Tai Tuivasa.
