Joe Rogan Thinks You're 'Dumb' If You Believe Jake Paul's Fights Are Rigged

Joe Rogan has called people who think Jake Paul's boxing matches are rigged 'dumb' and brought up his last fight with Tyron Woodley as an example.


YouTuber turned fighter Paul is currently 5-0, but critics have slammed his opponents and how he eventually ends up winning.

The 25-year-old took on Woodley in December, four months after beating the former UFC welterweight champion via split decision.

Paul wouldn't need points the second time around and knocked Woodley out inside six rounds.

It means Paul has knocked out everyone he's ever fought, including AnEsonGib, Nate Robinson and Ben Askren.

Rogan played down the idea of the 'Problem Child' rigging his fights after rewatching his second clash with Woodley.

"Some people are really dumb and they think that people choose to get knocked out on purpose for money," Rogan said to Aljamain Sterling on the Joe Rogan Experience MMA Podcast.

Someone said, oh he took a dive in that fight. I go, 'I don’t even think it’s possible for you to get hit like that and not go unconscious'. Like, can’t you see the way he got hit? He got hit perfectly.

"If you watch him face plant, if somebody is going to go out, they’re going to break their fall a little bit, you know? That dude got knocked out for real, for real."

He went on to stress he knows rigged fights have occurred before, but doubts so many would happen in a short period of time.

Paul has been out of action since beating Woodley and turned his hand to promoting earlier this year.

It's been confirmed he'll return to the ring in August but the identity of his opponent hasn't been revealed.

Everyone wants a piece of Paul, including longtime rival Tommy Fury and Jorge Masvidal.

Butterbean called Paul out in a recent TikTok video and we're still not over it.

He said: "The big announcement is I’m gonna fight one last fight. It’s gonna be one year from now. Jake Paul, if you’re ready, I’m here for you my friend. Let’s get it on, me and you Jake Paul.

"I bet it would be an awesome fight. After you said what you said about me in the magazine, I’m ready to fight you. Are you ready? I don’t think so."
