MMA Joe Rogan Alllllmost Confirms McGregor/Alvarez at UFC 205 by Kristine Haugsjaa September 19, 2016 Photo Credit: Screenshots from The Fight Companion on the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast / Sept 17th, 2016 You know when longtime UFC color commentator Joe Rogan makes faces like these, something big is about to happen. On Saturday night’s Fight Companion podcast during UFC Fight Night: Poirier vs. Johnson, regular guest and Fighter and the Kid co-host Brendan Schaub asked Rogan about the highly rumored lightweight title fight between current champ Eddie Alvarez and 145-pound champion Conor McGregor at UFC 205 in New York in November. Rogan responded in a show tune jingle, “I know a little something I wish I could tell…” accompanied by various facial features pictured above. All we need is for UFC President Dana White to deny the match up completely and we have ourselves a title fight main event at the Garden! As the current strap holder in the Featherweight division, McGregor has made it his goal to become the first UFC fighter to hold the gold in two-weight classes at the same time. Should the match up take place, this will also be his first fight at 155 in the UFC octagon. Before vacating his belts to join the UFC roster in 2012, McGregor was the two-division champion in Cage Warriors FC. Much like the current situation, ‘Notorious’ did not defend either the CWFC Featherweight or Lightweight belt before vacating. Fight Companion features Rogan, Schaub, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Eddie Bravo and Bellator fighter Joe Schilling, who subbed in for comedian and the kid to the Fighter and the Kid‘s, Bryan Callen.
