There was no conflict of schedule. Joe Rogan didn’t work tonight. Joe Rogan could’ve worked tonight. … Yeah, Joe Rogan, I don’t know what Joe Rogan had to do. You guys will have to ask Joe Rogan, but there was no ‘Joe couldn’t work,’ or anything like that. I know that came out. That’s total bullsh*t.

However, while he poured cold water on rumors of conflicting schedule, White confirmed that Rogan would return for future UFC events.
