Joe Rogan is back for one of the biggest cards of the year.

MMA Fighting confirmed with ESPN officials the details of this Saturday’s broadcast plans for UFC 268 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, which include Rogan’s return to the commentary desk after a four-month hiatus and Bruce Buffer resuming his in-cage announcing duties after missing his first numbered UFC event in 25 years this past Saturday due to COVID-19 (Joe Martinez took over UFC 267 announcing duties in Buffer’s place). The assignments were first reported by MMA Junkie.

This will be Rogan’s first commentary desk duty since calling the UFC 264 event headlined by Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor this past July. Joining Rogan on the desk will be Jon Anik and former two-division UFC champion Daniel Cormier.

Serving as the third man in the booth in Rogan’s place at UFC 267 and UFC 266 was former lightweight contender Paul Felder, with current bantamweight contender Dominick Cruz sitting in for Rogan at UFC 265.
