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 53-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 had in 2019.
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 in 2019.
However, Masvidal only fought once in 2020 and suffered a unanimous decision defeat to Kamaru Usman at UFC 251 for the welterweight championship.
The UFC star's first fight of 2021 has not been revealed, but he could easily step into the octagon for a grudge match with rival Colby Covington.
