True he said it outside the job but regardless of whether he is on the clock or not, as a UFC employee speaking on a mixed martial arts forum he is representing the UFC.

Also if I in anyway associate myself with the firm they have the right to deem anything I say or do online as inappropriate and terminate me. For example if I post a picture of me doing a keg stand while wearing a shirt that had the firms name on it I would be fired.
The UFC may want to consider a similar policy especially since they are now encouraging their fighters to use twitter. What Rogan says in a public forum could impact the UFC's image and/or have a financial impact.
