Rogan isn't always taken seriously by the casual fan, but people who've been around the sport for a long time know how good he really is. His dedication to MMA and the UFC does not go unnoticed.
In this video, Rogan breaks down the UFC 130 matchups and describes how he sees the fights panning out. Rogan knows a lot about these fighters, and his opinions should not be ignored. After all, Rogan is the man who sits outside the Octagon at every event and gets paid to pay very close attention to the athletes.
