Rogan began working for the Ultimate Fighting Championship as backstage and post-fight interviewer; his first show took place at UFC 12: Judgement Day on February 7, 1997. Rogan became friends with UFC's then-new president Dana White, who offered him a job as a color commentator but Rogan initially declined as he "just wanted to go to the fights and drink." In 2002, White was able to hire Rogan for free in exchange for prime event tickets for him and his friends. After about 15 free gigs as commentator Rogan accepted to pay for the job. Rogan won the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Award for Best Television Announcer twice and was named MMA Personality of the Year four times by the World MMA Awards.
