Things That Get Joe Rogan Fired Up, Vol. XVIII: Ice in the Octagon

Those of you who missed the Spike TV broadcast of the Melvin Guillard-Ronnys Torres fight at UFC 109 didn’t just miss a very close three-round scrap, you also missed a chance to see Joe Rogan flip out over something besides marijuana, locker room meat-gazers, or the craziness of space.  I refer now, of course, to an ice spill in the Octagon. 

It’s no one’s fault, really, except maybe the person who decided to use a cheap grocery store produce bag in Torres’s corner.  The thing comes apart at the most inopportune time, and the result is a group of grown men trying frantically to clean up a large pile of ice while Rogan yells at them and a packed arena boos their efforts.  The difficulty these men (or, as Rogan refers to them, "the goddamn Three Stooges") have in this task just goes to show how much more difficult everything becomes in a high-pressure situation.  Try unlocking your front door while someone yells at you about what an incapable moron you are, or clean up broken eggs on the kitchen floor as your emotionally unstable girlfriend stands nearby and refers to the situation as "a disaster."  Then maybe you’ll understand.

Last I checked, there was still a piece of ice in the cage. Right there, in front of Joe Rogan, just taunting him.

@just- I think that Goldy casts a shadow over Rogan's dumb comments. I get just as excited for Goldbergisms for each UFC event as I do most fights. Cagepotato writers take note-- I think it would be nice to bring light to some of Goldberg's ism's after each event. He never fails to deliver.

"either way it was the first time he's acted like a total idiot on a broadcast. i think i can forgive him."

...Are you serious, gogo? I don't think Rogan's ever made it through a show without sounding like a complete fuckhead at some point or another. The guy isn't just a tool; he's a fucking Caterpillar.

This comment of the week award is a terrible thing for people like me that read the comments section. The amount of facepalms that I've experienced as a result of this comment of the week award is incredible. It's not even like you have to be particularly witty to post a smart and funny response. You can take as loooong as you need. So please, cagepotato your comment aloud a few times before you post it. Hopefully you will realize how lame it sounds...but I kind of doubt it. Anyways, keep firing away. I myself will go shirtless and maybe keep some net-dignity.

im with you smitty. its pretty bad sometimes. As far as "icegate" Rogan did seem to get worked up a bit much. He seemed to realize it and then try to make it more of a joke that he was so over the top. Normally I'm a big fan of his, but I felt he embarassed him self a bit here. Also agree with the comedians are weirdos observation, eccentric like most true artists in some ways.

Everythings an attempt at a comment of the week..........

I'd like to take this time to say that I really, really wanted Rolles Gracie to do well, and reinvigorate the heavyweight scene.

Also, i really, really, want to see Kyra Gracie nakies.

Or try to beat a Mexicutioner while your badass relatives Rickson and Renzo are watching, silently judging your every move.

EddieStrike, so where is this magical UFC version of the video?
El Famous Burrito- February 9, 2010 at 12:40 pm
Instead of Joe Rogan bitching from his commentator's seat, the NSAC needs to put R. Lee Ermey in there with the cornermen to keep shit like this from happening.

Are you quitting on me? Well, are you? Then quit, you slimy fucking Armando Garcia-looking piece of shit! Get that fucking ice out of my octagon! Get the fuck down out of my octagon! NOW! MOVE IT! Or I'm going to rip your balls off, so you cannot contaminate the rest of the world!
EddieStrike- February 9, 2010 at 12:11 pm
UFC has uploaded their own version lol

re-link it CP!

cecils_pupils- February 9, 2010 at 11:39 am
Damn, Zuffa is fast with those cease and desist orders, the video is already gone.

LOL @ ReX13

I think his rant/reaction to the perverted change room kid still takes the cake. Especially after seeing the reaction on the kid's face when Rogan pulled down his drawers.

Maybe this sport wouldn't be what it is today if it wasn't for Rogan's pizazz.

@rex - that was pretty funny, AND pretty fucking detailed. Most of us who don't wet our beds wouldn't know "nocturnal enuresis" if it pissed in our faces.

I think you could be a comedian.

@ gogo,

Most comedians are weirdos attempting to cope IMO.

This is truth. Most comedians are very upfront about being dysfunctional individuals. I imagine most of the funniest dudes on this site were picked on in middle school, came from a broken home, or wet the bed until they were 24 years old, still living at their dad's house but they can't afford to move out right now, and rubber sheets are a bitch to get on a mattress, much less off--smelling of sweat, urine, and aborted ambitions. Sure, there are programs for nocturnal enuresis, but you know how much that kind of therapy costs? Spend that, and you'll never save up enough for college, and you'll be stuck working at a pizza place until you're forty, pissing your bed and you still haven't lost your virginity.

So you just tell some jokes. Whatever works.

More than a loser like that could ever afford working at the pizza place I'm sure.


robthom- February 9, 2010 at 11:01 am
@ gogo,

I'll bet it was a little bit of both.

He's the kind of weirdo who would freak out about something like that, which is probably why he became a comedian in the first place.

Thats usually where I leave it right fucking there.
flying gogoplata- February 9, 2010 at 10:54 am
not sure if he was trying to do a stand-up routine (and failed), or was genuinely freaking out about it... either way it was the first time he's acted like a total idiot on a broadcast. i think i can forgive him. (first?)
