Joe Rogan Made His Podcast Desk Wider Because He Was Scared Of Mike Tyson

Joe Rogan has revealed he widened his podcast desk because he was scared of Mike Tyson.

The two-time world heavyweight champion, aptly nicknamed 'The Baddest Man On The Planet', has appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience on two occasions.

His most recent podcast with the UFC co-commentator in September when he was preparing for his boxing comeback against Roy Jones Jr and Rogan felt he was so pumped up that he needed some extra space.



"[Mike Tyson] is the reason why this table is this wide. This table, I was going to make it more narrow, I even had a smaller table that we were working with as a guide," Rogan said in an episode with Mark Normand.

"We were still doing the shows back in LA, while we were setting up this studio, I did an interview with Tyson, and he was so amped up for this Roy Jones fight, that I got nervous being in the room.

"I'm like, 'I like that extra six inches of space between us, because he was so ramped up. When he left, Jamie goes 'that's a totally different person,' because he went from being, 'Mike Tyson, pot grower, not working out at all', to getting ready to go to combat again."


Tyson has well and truly got the bug for boxing again and after getting himself in superb physical condition, looked very impressive in his draw with Jones Jr at the Staples Center in November.

He's intimidating as it is but there was another dimension to him when he was on Logan Paul's 'imPaulsive' podcast after he consumed four grams of mushrooms in one go.

It was literally five minutes into the podcast and 'Iron Mike' shoved in far more than the usual intake for your average joe and didn't even stop to drink some water.

He then confirmed he trains after taking mushrooms and may have taken some a few days before he returned to the ring for the first time in 15 years - adding "it helps me be a better me".
