When you think of UFC commentary, you think of Joe Rogan. While some love his exuberance behind the mic at the MMA events, others prefer funny Joe that would put up a great stand-up comedy show.

Joe Rogan started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1988 and ever since then, he has approached every potentially taboo subject like religion, politics, sex, drugs or terrorism.

Joe grew up without his father, as his parents divorced when he was five years old. He remembers flashes of domestic violence, but doesn’t like complaining about his past.

At 13 years old he started practicing martial arts and right now Rogan holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This obviously makes him the most intimidating stand-up comedian out there.

Since 2009, Rogan gained more fame by running one of the most popular podcasts on YouTube – The Joe Rogan Experience. Each week he invites a public figure to have a long conversation on their story and life in general.

Here are 18 incredible Joe Rogan quotes to help you stay motivated.
