Joe Rogan died on Twitter (again) but turns out he’s just pregnant

Thanks to that catchy song by L.A. Style, nobody took it seriously when singer James Brown passed away in late 2006. Something tells me we may have a similar problem when UFC color commentator Joe Rogan kicks the bucket because nobody on Twitter will believe it.

LIVE! Watch UFC 289 PPV On ESPN+ Here!

OCTAGON RETURNS TO THE GREAT WHITE NORTH! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Canada for the first time in almost four years when it hosts UFC 289 inside Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia, on Sat., June 10, 2023. In UFC 289’s pay-per-view (PPV) main event, women’s Bantamweight champion, Amanda Nunes, will lock horns with No. 5-ranked 135-pound contender, Irene Aldana, while former Lightweight kingpin and current No. 1-seeded contender, Charles Oliveira, battles No. 4-ranked Beneil Dariush in the co-feature with 155-pound title implications on the line.

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

Probably because Rogan, 54, is the butt of a long-running social media joke that resurfaces on occasion, claiming the former Fear Factor host and part-time comic is dead. Good news for fanboys (and bad news for haters), Rogan is still alive.

And expecting!

“We are saddened to announce the passing of Joe Rogan,” read the since-deleted tweet from account @joerogannhq. “He died peacefully in his home this afternoon, we will provide more details as they arrive, with respect to his family’s wishes.”

The “Joe Rogan is dead” tweets started coming in hot last Tuesday night and some of them were elaborate enough to include a bogus statement from Rogan’s “devastated” family. A fake UFC account also shared its “thoughts and prayers” from promotion president Dana White.

Have a look:

Rogan will return to the UFC commentary table this Sat. night (April 9, 2022) alongside Jon Anik and Paul Felder for the UFC 273: “Volkanovski vs. Korean Zombie” pay-per-view (PPV) event inside VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.
