Joe Rogan Uses Insanely Powerful Kicks To Break Francis Ngannou's PowerKube Record At 52-Years-Old
Joe Rogan recorded an insane PowerKube score of 151,000 when he visited the UFC Performance Institute in Las Vegas.
The 52-year-old, known by many as a successful podcast host and commentator, threw a series of heavy blows to the Kube alongside Muay Thai champion Joe Schilling.
In a clip uploaded to his official Instagram page, Rogan recorded some impressive scores on the device that measures the power of a strike based on the motion of 'an accellerometer under constraint by a known compressive resistance element.'
On top of beating Schilling, Rogan also broke Francis Ngannou's punch power record of 129,161 on the PowerKube, a blow that was confirmed as the hardest ever thrown.
It's a remarkable feat considering the circumstances. Rogan, of course, is a black belt in Brazilian ju-jitsu, taekwondo, and karate but to say he's recording such huge numbers at the age of 52 is admirable.
Rogan later spoke about his experience at the UFC Performance Institute on his podcast, JRE MMA Show, where he confirmed his score.
"I think [Ngannou] got 120-something," Rogan said. "129, that's so crazy! That's what I get with a kick -- with legs that carry you around all day. He got 129,161 with a punch, I got 152,000 today, bitch."
Rogan is known for his hard hitting technique on the mat and back in 2011, the podcast host taught UFC legend Georges St. Pierre to throw a turning side-kick
GSP, who once said Rogan's kicks are the most powerful he's ever seen, was all ears in this fascinating YouTube clip posted by Eddie Bravo.
And who can forget when a troll called him Rogan out on MySpace in 2011, and then showed up to his gym, where the black belt fighter forced the guy to tap out.
Never change, Joe.
