Joe Rogan explains his comments on 'fat referee'

Joe Rogan explains his comments on 'fat referee'
November 24th 2012

Joe Rogan got some flak for his comments about the referee’s obesity during the UFC 154 fight between Tom Lawlor and Francis Carmont. He was variously accused of being “a bully” and “rude” for the comment, which was made live on air, and so on this week’s episode of The Joe Rogan Experience he addressed the reasoning behind it.

Rogan’s reasoning is that the referee in a fight has to be physically able to intervene and separate two big, physically fit fighters and also has to be able to get involved fast to stop the fight as soon as it needs to be stopped.

    Joe Rogan..he always has smart (so he thinks) remarks about fighters and basically anyone he comes into contact with..the difference is like most little gobby annoying loud mouths he needs to be put in his place..if you look at remarks he has made against fighters he quickly back peddles as soon as they say anything against him..like rampage he put this fool back in his box..rogan is the kind of bloke that picks on people he can..and kisses ass of the kind of people he cant..mabye he has a small man syndrome as he seems to be only 3 foot tall...
