Dave Portnoy who is the founder of Barstool Sports featured on The Joe Rogan Experience (JRE) podcast earlier this month. Host Joe Rogan and Portnoy engaged in a passionate argument about Tommy Fury’s legitimacy as a fighter. While Rogan believed Fury was a genuine boxer, Portnoy continued to dismiss the Brit’s talent until the UFC color commentator lost his calm.
Portnoy said, “We would not know who Tommy Fury is if his last name wasn’t Fury.” When Dave Portnoy claimed that Jake Paul could “kill” Tommy Fury, Rogan showed boxing footage of Fury on the screen. While watching the clip Joe Rogan said “So, here’s Tommy Fury. You’re telling me, this guy doesn’t look like a boxer – you’re out of your f*****g mind. I don’t give a f***k [about who he’s fighting], dude.”
He further said that “Look at this, he’s fighting a professional boxer. The guy he’s fighting looks good. You’re crazy if you think Tommy Fury isn’t a boxer.” In reaction to Portnoy rambling on and not watching what Rogan was showing him, Joe Rogan repeatedly urged Dave Portnoy to “shut the f**k up” and watch the video while pointing to an uppercut by Fury in the footage.
Joe Rogan recently criticized the judges in Paddy Pimblett’s UFC 282 win. Joe Rogan was in the commentary box for the main event, Jan Blachowicz vs. Magomed Ankalaev, and the co-main, Paddy Pimblett vs. Jared Gordon. The main event was underwhelming due to neither fighter claiming the then-vacant light heavyweight title in a draw. Paddy Pimblett, the co-main event winner earned a contentious unanimous decision over Jared Gordon who most people believed won the fight.
On episode #134 of the JRE MMA Show with Belal Muhammad, Rogan referred to bad judging mentioning Pimblett’s most recent battle. Paddy Pimblett did not win the first round, according to both Rogan and Belal Muhammad, after being knocked down and twice struck by Jared Gordon’s left hooks.
