Rampage Jackson: 'Biased' Joe Rogan plays the rusty trombone for jiu-jitsu fighters

"You know he's got good jiu-jitsu because he's so biased against jiu-jitsu guys. You can hear it in his voice. Whenever a guy is a jiu-jitsu fighter he's playing rusty trombone. I don't think you should talk down, you should be neutral. When I used to fight in PRIDE, watch Bas Rutten and Stephen Quadros on commentary. Those guys were my good friends and you couldn't even tell when they were doing commentary. We hung out outside of work sometimes, we were good friends but when I fought they weren't biased towards me. They did their job. They weren't biased towards skills or anything like that. That's the way it should be. Sometimes you can hear him because Joe Rogan has one of those girly high-ass voices. I just wanna tell him to shut the fuck up sometimes."

Quinton Jackson, who fights Ryan Bader at UFC 144 this Saturday night (Feb. 25, 2012) at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, has strong words for UFC color commentator Joe Rogan, who "Rampage" believes is "biased" towards jiu-jitsu fighters, often at the expense of strikers or non-grappling styles of combat (6:14 mark). Anyone think the Memphis slugger is being too hard on Rogan -- or do you side with Jackson and think the broadcasting team should make a concerted effort to remain neutral at all times? And how do you feel about his comparison to Quadros and Rutten?
