Joe Rogan on UFC’s double standards: ‘McGregor is worth so much money’
UFC analyst Joe Rogan had a few words to say on his podcast about the UFC double standards, including the infamous lifetime ban imposed on Paul Daley for the attempted sucker punch of Josh Koscheck back in 2010 and recent Conor MyGregor’s escapade, according to Bloodyelbow.
“He just keeps fucking up with this kind of stuff and no one’s saying, ‘Get rid of him!’” said Rogan. “He’s worth so much money. It’s really fascinating. Imagine if Ray Borg and him switched sides. If Ray Borg showed up with all his boys and was screaming and yelling and threw a dolly at the window, it’s a done deal forever. Think about Paul Daley. Paul Daley must be at home going, ‘Motherfucker! Fuck Dana White!’
“Until you get to that stratosphere that Conor McGregor – there’s so much money to be made, that’s the problem. The rules get bent. All Paul Daley did was throw a punch at Josh Koscheck after [fight was over]. It didn’t even connect! That could have been sorted out.”
However, UFC might bend its rules but Rogan believes that New York’s Athletic Commission won’t be willing to ever license McGregor to compete in New York again.
“I don’t think New York is ever letting that motherfucker fight there again,” said Rogan. “I just don’t think they’re gonna do that. They don’t play games. That athletic commission is a different commission. They’re new to MMA and that was embarrassing to them. Him throwing the fucking dolly and the fact that they let him get in there with all his boys, the whole thing was just so thuggish.”
