"Should go to jail" - Joe Rogan makes his feelings clear on Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou
| Last updated
Joe Rogan has made his feelings perfectly clear following Tyson Fury's controversial win against Francis Ngannou last weekend.
The self-proclaimed 'Gypsy King' survived a huge scare in the round as he was dropped by 'The Predator' before getting the nod from the judges.
The UFC heavyweight champion, meanwhile, has been praised by the MMA community for taking the WBC world heavyweight title holder the distance.
UFC commentator Rogan believes the French-Cameroonian should've had his hand raised and pulled no punches on the one judge who scored the fight 96-93 in favour of Fury.
He said the judge who scored the bout massively for Fury 'should go to jail', calling the scorecard 'f**king outrageous'.
Speaking on his podcast, he said: “Francis Ngannou had never had a boxing match ever in his life, had zero boxing matches, but he was the UFC heavyweight champion, knocked down Tyson Fury in the third round, beat him up in the eighth round."
Rogan added: “Most people, including me, thought he should’ve won the decision - including most boxers, most boxing pundits. He lost by one point on one judge’s scorecard. He won on one judge’s scorecard, and another judge, who should go to jail, had it 96-93 for Tyson Fury, which is f**king outrageous.
"We thought (Fury) was going to run him over because he’s the boxing heavyweight champion.
"'There’s no way this guy can box with me.' He even said at the beginning of the fight, 'It’s time to go to school.' and then Francis said at the end of the fight, 'You are a sh*tty professor.'"
