Joe Rogan is upsetting people all over. There are currently cries for Spotify to axe him, and now he’s taking aim at UFC fans while on commentary.
UFC 264 went down tonight from Last Vegas, and Joe Rogan did not hold back during the prelims, because he was not happy about the fans’ reaction. Rogan fired off at fans booing the Ryan Hall vs Ilia Topuria fight, calling them “unschooled mouthbreathers.” Yikes.
Alongside Jon Anik and Daniel Cormier, Rogan was giving Hall big props for his unique technique. Then fans started to disagree, and he made that remark about them and their opinions.
“Look at him! His hands are down. He makes it look like he’s so casual. It looks like he’s almost playing. You know? He’s so comfortable in there, and the audience, the unschooled mouthbreathers amongst us, they’re going to start booing and screaming about this guy.”
Topuria won the big fight, and people glossed over what Joe Rogan said about the fans. That still didn’t get past some on social media. “Joe Rogan just called the fans booing “unschooled mouth breathers” one fan commented, “I’m sure there are plenty there tonight since McGregor is fighting.”
Damon Martin commented to say, “The knockout was really impressive but the best part of that fight was Joe Rogan calling fans booing grappling exchanges ‘unschooled mouth breathers'”
