Joe Rogan Once Made An Internet Troll Tap Out

Joe Rogan Once Made An Internet Troll Tap Out

There's lots of ways to try and deal with internet trolls but there might not be any as effective as how Joe Rogan dealt with one in 2011, making him tap out.

Most people know Rogan either for his commentary on UFC or his podcast interviews on the 'Joe Rogan Experience' but the man with a mic is also a dab hand on the mat.

Rogan is a black belt in jiu-jitsu so when a troll called him out on MySpace in 2011 he showed up at training and forced the guy to tap out, amazing stuff.

The 52-year-old has seen his fair share of UFC fights and fighters and he's thoroughly impressed with the year that newly crowned BMF champion Jorge Masvidal has had.

As the betting outsider going into his fights with Darren Till and Ben Askren he finished both early. He stopped Till in London with a great shot before breaking the record for the quickest K.O in UFC history when he ended Askren with a flying knee in five seconds.

That earned him the fight at UFC 244 for the BMF belt against Nate Diaz. Gamebred was favourite for that one and proved why in the three rounds until the doctor stopped the fight.

Speaking on his own podcast with Israel Adesanya about Masvidal, Rogan said, "I feel like Masvidal is world championship caliber, 100%.

"He's a different person now. Now he's what he could have been. He is potential realized. He's at 100% right now...

"He beat the f**k out of Diaz in that first round."

Gamebred's win over Diaz may have been somewhat controversial but there's no doubting he's made himself into one of the biggest stars in the UFC thanks to his run this year.

Next up for the Floridan could be a meeting with Nate Diaz's older brother Nick.

'Diablo' hasn't fought since his no contest with Anderson Silva in 2015 but wasn't too impressed with Masvidal saying he would 'baptise' his brother.

There are other options for Masvidal though, with Conor McGregor talking before the BMF title fight about a future fight with the winner.

Another option could be for the BMF champ to face the winner of Kumar Usman vs Colby Covington for the middleweight title, after the two fight at UFC 245.
