    Russian hackers are gonna break into Rogan's computer and put a lot of career-ending furry porn in it.

    lol at saying the Russian league is better than the MLS, not because it isn't but because you're making it looking like it means much. Yeah, they have teams in the UCL, so does Azerbaijan for example.

    Russian league and their players are pretty meh taking out a few exceptions.

    Well, on many occasions he has acknowledged the fact that he only pays attention to combat sports. Shouldn’t surprise anyone that he has no knowledge on this topic.

    Amateur and professional are very vague terms and in the sports world they can mean different things. In boxing it means you get paid if you are pro.

    However the standard for being a pro in boxing is only to do paperwork and you can get licensed without an amateur career. Pro doesnt mean better than amateur it mostly just means cash money.

    Pro boxers are now allowed to enter the olympics and all of them got shut out by amateurs.

    So I think when Joe says Russians are amateur he just means they don't have the professional, capitalistic style sports in russia and to that degree he isnt conpletely off the mark.

    Throws shade implying Fedor was on the juice but believes Jones is innocent. Seems legit.

    You are right, he knows about boxing and thinks its the same for all olympics, There are different rules, for example the olympic football teams have to be u-23 but can still be top players in the worlds biggest clubs

    Joe Rogan is an amateur at being tall and intelligent

    He's so dumb it's annoying. Like the Jones steroid cocaine thing. He starts a theory that Jones didn't take roids. His cocaine was laced with roids. Months later when Matt Brown is on his podcast he says "There's the big rumour that Jones' coke was laced with steroids. And I believe it 100%" insert some pseudo science bullshit and he spouts it off like an intellect. It's absolute cringe.

    They don't have team sports but they sure as hell seem to be a mecca for combat sports. Sambo, boxing, wrestling, kickboxing judo I'm pretty sure and whatever in between. If the Russians were signed on in large droves they would literally take over ufc and their shitty ranking system.

    Spoken like somebody who has never been abroad, or even experienced a different culture. You can spend your time in the basement, until you have experienced a country what you consider a 'shit hole' you don't have a valid opinion. At least we have a high standard of education, unlike your apparent state... Continue being a fat virgin - it is working.

    It's not exactly news that Joe doesn't know fuck all about any non-combat sports

    He weirdly takes pride in it for some reason

    But yeah this is some dumb ass shit there are amazing pro Russian hockey players, boxers, soccer players etc.

    I think Rogan is talking about professional sports leagues that make money like the nba, mlb, and nfl.

    I don’t think Russia has that
