    I have nothing against Bellator. But I find it strange that Rogan who is a significant UFC employee is doing this. And three times in a row already:

    The last JRE Fight Companion (April 28) was for Bellator Mir vs Fedor
    And the last two JRE MMA Shows
    JRE MMA Show #25 (May 07) with Michael Chandler (the face of Bellator's lightweight division).
    JRE MMA Show #26 (May 16) with Big John McCarthy (Bellator's Color commentator since January 2018)

    What's going on here?

    Is Bellator paying JRE like they (alegedly/probably) paying MMAfighting.com to put a highlight video of their card on their channel, for exposure?
    Or maybe a more wild guess: Rogan is planning joining Goldie in Bellator?

    Uhhhh......Joe is a huge MMA fan. Not just a UFC fan.

    The podcast isn't a UFC thing. It's a Rogan thing.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is...The Podcast Champ does what the fook he wants

    Because he is one foot out the door anyway and the UFC doesn't care.

    Also 90% of the shill accusations on SD are just salty people not underdtanding how people work.

    TS was raised by TV.

    Things like this don't just happen. There is a reason.

    Joe has everyone on his podcast. It has nothing to do with the UFC.

    Joe's favorite org all time is Pride. He's an MMA fan not just a UFC stan.

    Oh how interesting, I didn't think about that angle.
    Meaning it's another UFC tactic to counter the "monopoly" lawsuit against them.

    can't imagine the ufc caring at all Bellator isn't really a competitor (although they're gaining some ground), no JRE listener is going to just stop watching the ufc and only watch Bellator, and any new mma fans he attracts will ultimately benefit the ufc too

    Why not? It's clearly the second best MMA promotion in the world, why pretend it doesn't exist? Rogan is a big fan of MMA, why wouldn't he acknowledge Bellator? You would have to be an idiot not to considering elite fighters like Rory Macdonald and Gegard Mousasi left the UFC for the Bellator cage.
