Joe Rogan out, Kenny Florian in at UFC 83

joe roganKenny Florian -- not Joe Rogan -- will be the color commentator alongside Mike Goldberg at UFC 83: "Serra vs. St. Pierre 2" at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, on April 19.

Speculation has swirled for the past two weeks that Rogan would be absent from the broadcast booth and MMAWeekly.com was finally able to confirm it.

He apparently has commitments that supersede the historical first foray of the promotion into Canada.

Here's a snip from "Ken Flo:"

"I'm looking forward to it. It's not only going to be a tremendous night of fights, but it will be a great experience for me to get in there and commentate and watch these amazing fights real up close and do what I normally do on the couch, and yell and scream, except do it on TV."

Florian recently defeated Joe Lauzon via technical knockout at UFC Fight Night 13 at the Broomfield Event Center in Broomfield, Colo., on April 2.

Let's see how he does on the other side of the fence -- he's got some big shoes to fill. Rogan is the man ... I don't care what anyone says.
