Does Joe Rogan Own the UFC?
Although Joe Rogan has been with the company for 25 years, he isn't an owner of the UFC. Before WME purchased the UFC for $4+ billion dollars, Lorenzo Fertitta, his brother Frank Fertitta and Dana White were the major owners of the UFC. In 2016, the Fertitta brothers and White sold most of their UFC shares during the acquisition.
Due to Rogan's long-time active role as a commentator in the UFC, many fans mistakenly believe that he was one of the original owners.
