Joe Rogan remains one of the most popular celebrities in recent memory. Rogan is never afraid to speak his mind and dive deep into more uncomfortable topics. Joe Rogan also went after fans who don’t care about Israel Adesanya.
Israel Adesanya is undoubtedly one of the most established MMA fighters in all the UFC. He has a tremendous track record in the UFC and fans simply cannot get enough of him.
While speaking on “Joe Rogan Experience,” Joe Rogan defended Adesanya for his recent string of uninspiring victories. He defended the reigning middleweight champion against fans who don’t care about him.
“Because people are dumb!” Rogan said. “That’s why. This is why, if you want to fight Jared Cannonier, you better fight in that way because Jared Cannonier will knock you into the fucking next dimension. That guy is a huge 185-pounder, who has ruthless knockout power.
“He was knocking people out at heavyweight, knocking people out at light heavyweight, and knocking people dead at 185. If you want to fight Jared Cannonier, you got to find that way.”
“If you want to ruin your brain for a bunch of people that don’t give a f**k about you when you lose, good luck,” he added. “Go try that. It’s a dumb way to live your life.
I feel like people are trying to still keep it a bloodsport. They want to keep it that way,” Usman said.
It’s the casuals, man. It’s the people that don’t understand the actual events that have taken place,” Rogan responded. “When Izzy is setting Jared up, he’s moving, outpointing him, and striking him. Look, if Jared wanted to get wild and crazy, Izzy probably would have knocked him out. “But Jared fought the way he should have fought and Izzy fought the way he should have fought, and the better man won. That’s what prizefighting is all about.”
Adesanya also previously made it clear that he wants his next fight to be against Alex Pereira. So, he’s obviously not done in the Octagon just yet.
What’s your take on Adesanya? Do you care about him, or are you someone Joe Rogan would call “dumb?” Sound off in the comments!
