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 274 PPV On ESPN+ Here!

CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLE DIP! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Phoenix, Ariz., on Sat., May 7, 2022, with a blockbuster championship doubleheader. Headlining the pay-per-view (PPV) event will be Lightweight champion, Charles Oliveira, seeking to defend his title against No. 1-ranked contender, Justin Gaethje. In UFC 274’s co-main event, women’s Strawweight champion, Rose Namajunas, looks to avenge her loss against No. 2-seeded, Carla Esparza. And top-ranked Lightweight contenders collide when Michael Chandler (No. 5) locks horns with Tony Ferguson (No. 7) in a fan-friendly 155-pound clash for the ages.

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.
