Joe Rogan is currently one of the most popular personalities in the world of MMA and UFC, largely thanks to his commentary skills and also his podcast. He recovered from the virus last year and since then spread a lot of misinformation about the virus, at least according to numerous doctors and various other people. A UFC girl also wanted Joe Rogan to pick her up previously.
Rogan previously opened up on the episodes of his podcast that featured Dr. Robert Malone and Dr. Peter McCullough. They were the most controversial ones. Eventually, Joe Rogan became a controversial figure due to him using the n-word and other racial slurs in the past. It led to him getting cancelled for a while and losing deals as well. Except for Spotify, who stood by him for the most part except for deleting several of his Joe Rogan Experience podcast episodes.
Joe Rogan expressed his disagreement with the unanimous decision victory given to Islam Makhachev over Alexander Volkanovski in the main event of UFC 284. The mixed martial arts community, much like Rogan, appears to be split on who emerged as the winner. While two judges scored the fight 48-47 in favor of Makhachev, judge Derek Cleary awarded the bout 48-46 to the Dagestani fighter. This decision by Cleary has sparked a lot of controversy, with many fans contending that Volkanovski should have been declared the winner.
He felt the judges got the decision wrong and that Volkanovski deserved the win. Despite the loss, Alexander Volkanovski received support from several MMA professionals, including Nate Diaz and Dillon Danis, who took to social media to congratulate him on his performance. Meanwhile, Joe Rogan, who was watching the fight with friends including Brendan Schaub and Eddie Bravo, immediately expressed his frustration with the outcome. The group on the stream all concurred, calling it a “robbery” and insisting that Volkanovski had done enough to secure the victory. Rogan made it clear that he believed the judges made the wrong call and that Volkanovski was deserving of the win.
“Oh my God! We were convinced [that Alexander Volkanovski won the fight]. We might have to watch it [again]. Let’s see what people think online. In my eyes, I thought it was 3-2.”
