Joe Rogan on possible GSP brain damage

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/ufc-joe...0645--mma.html

I don't know if this is 100% legit, but it makes an interesting read. Decide for yourself.

I was actually shocked that GSP thinks he gets abducted by aliens every night when he falls asleep. Pretty weird theory but I doubt it has anything to do with brain damage.

Some people have weird phobias and Georges just happens to fall into that category.

He needs to retire badly if that stuff about aliens is true. Blacking out doesn't mean you've been abducted, it means you have brain damage.

Rogan is a fucking doctor now? Must be studying that neurology in between fights, podcasts, and gigs.

I have no idea what GSP's problem is but unlike Rogan, I won't pull something out of my ass guessing what it might be. If GSP is worried about his reported memory loss he should see a neurologist who specializes in concussions (there are several at McGill Uni. in GSP's home of Montreal) who would be happy to help.

Rogan isn't a dumb dude but because he makes his living in large part from speaking on the fly, he often let's his mouth go before his own brain is fully engaged.

GSP never said the he thinks he gets abducted by aliens. In fact, Rogan was the one trying to push that theory onto to GSP with GSP refusing it. You can see the whole transcript of the conversation in the below link:

http://www.reddit.com/r/MMA/comments...ted_by_aliens/

For example:

Joe: Have you had an experience with aliens?
GSP: No, no, no...
Joe: I don't believe you!

Joe: Do you think you are getting snatched up and taken away for a few hours?
GSP: No, no. I don't think...maybe I've fallen asleep...thats what I hope.
(GSP talks about a similar thing happening while driving)
Joe: Thats very minor stuff. It could be you are tired, you push yourself, it could be stress.
GSP: That is exactly what I hope.
Joe: But you don't have any memory of grey dudes putting fingers up your butt?
GSP: No. None of that.
(Joe goes back to talking about DMT, the chemical he tried to bring up earlier)
Joe: When people are having these experiences, and they are very realistic and do believe they are being taken abord by a UFO somewhere, they might not be wrong...
GSP: But this is not a UFO encounter. The UFO is a an unidentified flying object, the encounter you talk about if they have been taken abord, this is different, like it could be a third type encounter, anyways, but this is different. You talk about me, but I don't have any memory of such things. Sometimes I fall asleep, then I wake up and the time has passed.

Tito had mentioned things like this leading up to the 2nd Forrest fight. He would drive home and then forget how he even got there.

Sounds very similar. Georges at the very least needs to take some time off.
