10 MMA Stars Who Had Beef With Joe Rogan


Dada 5000

Dhafir ‘Dada 5000’ Harris vs. Kimbo Slice at Bellator 149 in 2016 was easily one of the worst fights in recent memory, and when it emerged that Dada had been taken to hospital suffering from heart failure afterwards, Rogan didn’t hold back criticizing the fighter’s conditioning.

“Yeah, his heart stopped,” Rogan said on his ‘Fight Companion’ show. “It was filled with cheeseburgers and fried chicken and orange soda.

“He didn’t train. There was no way he trained. I mean, he might have trained for a couple of days. You should have lost 40 pounds before. It’s not like you didn’t know you were going to do this.”

Harris was still in hospital at the time, so furious members of his family blasted Rogan in a statement on social media.

“The Harris Family is appalled at the overtly racist and offensive comments directed at Dada 5000 by Joe Rogan. We don’t recall Mr. Rogan ever challenging anyone with this amount of vitriol and ignorant racial overtones, all directed to a man who is still hospitalized.

“Mocking Dada 5000 with hurtful and racist comments is despicable and divisive and has no place in the sport of mixed martial arts or in our society.”

    Punk Beach just needs to go to the gym and spar that always silence’s stupid talk

    • Juan Diablo

      Rogan ain’t no slouch man, he would probably wreck most gym fighters who aren’t pros- even at his age

  • Murdock

    Frank Mir has been lucky in many of his wins but he just doesn’t admit them.

    • JamesC

      luck? He is pretty damn skillful. I cant think of a single win that was luck based. Before you say Brock…he did a kneebar not because of luck but because Brock was inexperienced…thats not luck.

      • Murdock

        He was taking a beating by Brock. Referee seperates them which was a wrong move and suddenly Brock’s taps out seconds later. Frank clearly got lucky otherwise he’d be out cold.

        Same thing with the Big Nog rematch.

  • Jess Fenchley

    Honda hated everyone around her, so no surprise. Rogan was right with what he said. Honda just never heard the truth from anyone, and could not handle it.

    “Jacob Volkmann gained notoriety in 2011 when he was visited by the
    Secret Service after claiming he wanted to beat up Barack Obama,”

    I wonder is the secret service ever checked in with snoop dog or lil bow wow
    But I suppose some people get to say or do anything they want as long as they control the media

      Brain damage

  • Bobby Cullari

    Most of what Joe ever said was objective truth or joking about a truth too uncomfortable for some to hear.
