No he wasn't.

Wikipedia wrote:Rogan began working for UFC since UFC 12. Rogan has been a post-fight interviewer with the Ultimate Fighting Championship since 1997, and has been a color commentator since 2002.[2]

Rogan and movie actor Wesley Snipes were in negotiations in late 2005 to fight a mixed martial arts match in the UFC. However, no deal was ever made

There is a video on Break.com that shows him stealing Bill Cosby jokes...now that is sad. Mencia is a joke.

I understand that constantly coming up with new material is difficult. I also understand that comics occasionally recycle someone else's joke and create their own variation of it.

However, when you constantly take other peoples jokes and then lie about it, it becomes disrespectful. I admittedly have not done a lot of research on this subject, but judging by what George Lopez said, it appears as if Mencia used around 13 minutes of Lopez's material during his HBO special.

Personally, I'm glad that Rogan confronted Ned Mencia.

I agree with this. The guy is a thief, and IMO this is a form of plagiarism.
