Joe Rogan revealed he would never want to interview Donald Trump on his podcast on a recent JRE, stating that he doesn’t seek to interview people who won’t truly open up. He said he also wouldn’t interview Vladimir Putin, and hypothetically Adolf Hitler as well, though he wasn’t trying to compare Trump directly to either man. Guest Lex Fridman said he’d have interviewed Hitler if he could, as he’d interview anybody, including murderers.
The long-tenured Joe Rogan recently labeled people ‘dumb’ who are calling Jake Paul’s boxing matches rigged. The controversial figure in combat sports also brought up Paul’s last fight with Tyron Woodley as an example.
Joe Rogan opens up on the matter
The YouTuber turned-pro-boxer Paul is currently 5-0, but critics have slammed his opponents and how he eventually ends up winning. This has raised some doubts over his bouts. The 25-year-old took on Woodley in December, four months after beating the former UFC welterweight champion via split decision. Paul wouldn’t need points the second time around and knocked Woodley out inside six rounds.
It means Paul has knocked out everyone he’s ever fought, including AnEsonGib, Nate Robinson and Ben Askren.
Rogan played down the idea of the ‘Problem Child’ rigging his fights after rewatching his second clash with Woodley.
Here is what Rogan said to Aljamain Sterling on the Joe Rogan Experience MMA Podcast:
“Some people are really dumb and they think that people choose to get knocked out on purpose for money. Someone said, oh he took a dive in that fight. I go, ‘I don’t even think it’s possible for you to get hit like that and not go unconscious’. Like, can’t you see the way he got hit? He got hit perfectly.
“If you watch him face plant, if somebody is going to go out, they’re going to break their fall a little bit, you know? That dude got knocked out for real, for real.”
He went on to stress he knows rigged fights have occurred before, but doubts so many would happen in a short period of time. Paul has been out of action since beating Woodley and turned his hand to promoting earlier this year. He has been slated to return to the ring in August but his opponent has not been decided yet.
