The voice of the UFC has signed on to stay at least one more year despite saying he would leave if the promotion was sold.

Joe Rogan announced on his podcast on Tuesday that he had agreed to stay at least one more year as commentator for the UFC.

"I signed for at least one more year," he said to his guest UFC fighter Jeremy Stephens. "I was on the fence man, I just do too much s--t. I'm too f-----g busy. I don't know if I'm doing myself or all the other things I do a disservice."

This comes just a few weeks after the announcement of the sale of the organization and two months after he said he'd "100 percent" leave if there was a sale.

Although he is staying with the UFC, he says he will only be doing PPV cards and no international travel.

"I had a conversation with Dana, we had a bunch of conversations. What I decided to do was no more international travel. No more flying across the planet," he said.

He said he thinks Brian Stann, Dan Hardy and Kenny Florian will take over for him on the shows he will no longer be working.

"I don't want anyone to think that I don't appreciate it or that I don't know how lucky I am or that I don't think it's an amazing jobs. I definitely do. I'm almost too lucky, I have too many amazing jobs," Rogan said.
