Joe Rogan: Fedor Can’t ‘Be Rolling Around Fat at 230-(Pounds)’ and Beat Today’s Top Heavyweights

(Vid: MMA Weekly)

At his worst, Joe Rogan can come off as an arrogant blowhard with skin like an aging professional wrestler and a voice like a blender left too long on its ‘puree’ setting. At his best, he’s still one of the most articulate and insightful analysts MMA has been able to dredge up after almost 20 years of searching in America. If you really think about it, that’s pretty astounding. In the above video from MMA Weekly, Rogan appears to be in top form during a Q&A session with fans in Seattle just prior to the UFC’s recent “Fight Night” show, especially when the inevitable Fedor questions get tossed up on stage. On the topic of the former consensus No. 1 heavyweight, Rogan says what we’ve all been thinking for the last couple of years, but manages to put it all in the kind of direct (yet somehow elegant) language few other MMA broadcaster have been able to muster.

“I think Fedor is an amazing talent and an incredible athlete,” Rogan says. “I really admire his mind and his mindset when he goes in to compete. It’s really fun to watch that he’s so nonchalant with his big belly and goes in there and fucks people up. But the reality is that’s not going to work at the upper echelon of the sport anymore.”

Fact. Well said, Joe.

You ask us, this video conclusively shows why the UFC continues to stick with Rogan through all the other craziness that so often surrounds his public persona: Despite the bullshit, he may be the best in the business at coherently expressing the points hardcore fans already know and casual fans need to know, all in words we can understand. In exchange (as this video shows) MMA fans will laugh at anything he says that’s even kind of halfway funny.  Pretty much the perfect symbiotic relationship.

The last word on the Fedor topic? Though he doesn’t come all the way out and say it, sounds like Rogan is pretty much advocating a drop to light heavy for The Last Emperor. Frankly, we couldn’t agree more.

“I think at the highest levels of the game you can’t be rolling around fat at 230 against those (top heavyweight) guys,” he says. “We saw that in the Bigfoot Silva fight. Bigfoot Silva walks around at 290-pounds … (Fedor) is an amazing athlete and he’s put on some incredible fights over the years, but I think once you get to the highest levels of the game you can’t come in fat, you can’t be fighting way above your weight class.”

    In all fairness no single weight class should have a 60 lbs differential either. Point taken tho, Fedor should have been at fighting at 205 a while ago.

    So did Joe Rogan ever fight that one dude?

    Bigfoot walks around at 290? Yikes!

    Fedor just needs to get his fat ass in shape and cut down to 205 or 185.

    I can't disagree more with Joe Rogan. If Carlos Condit were to fight in UFC 1, there is no way he beats Gerard Gordeau, Art Jimerson, or even Teila Tuli .

    as a huge fedor fan i think it sucks that hes lost 2 in a row, most fans nowadays dont even renemba him from back in the day, tho im sure they youtubed his fights, its not the same wen ur in that moment, althletes get bigga betta and stronga in there sport. fedor was king, but theres a hole new game to mma then there was 7 or even 5 years ago, u gotaa be on point, i love fedor tho and will always be a fan

    Is replacing "er" on the end of words with "a" really that much of a timesaver, because it makes the person who does it look retarded. Bigfoot Silva walks around at 290...25lbs of it is his head.

    Fuck man, i am not ready to accept Jon Jones is the next ish in MMA. Everytime i hear someone refer to the fact that his is(like Rogan) i get irritated.
  12. keepyahguessing Says:

    Mon, 04/04/11 - 11:15


    its the same for everyone not just Fedor...to fight in heavyweight you really need to be 245-265lbs inshape bc nowadays heavyweights arent just naturally big guys who dont want to cut weight they are heavyweights who are skilled and in incredible shape(except Tim Sylvia LOL and a few)

    I would kinda love to see a 13 year old Carlos Condit fight roided out UFC1 era Ken Shamrock in his red bikini briefs.

    @rngeorgeh Yes I was joking.

    There should be another weight class. There should be a 220 or 225# weight class.

    Mlkyhoey please shut the fuck up. You piss everyone off trying to type like a "gangsta". Its one thing if someone has an accent, but when you're using a keyboard and you still talk like that we all know you're doing it on purpose in a failed effort to sound cool. Just stop. And learn how to correctly use then and than. Fuck...

    There were times when Brett Rogers handled Fedor too easily on the ground by virtue of being that much bigger. Yes Brett the tire guy... I like the idea of people fighting at the weight they fight at not the weight they can "make" but cutting is the reality. I like the idea of Super Heavyweight as well... Carlos Condit at UFC1 is really an interesting picture...
