Joe Rogan Says McGregor Would Be ‘A Hero’ If He KO’d Mayweather With Head Kick


Unless you have been living under a rock, most people know that boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr. is set to fight UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor in a boxing match in two months. It’s clear that Mayweather would never fight McGregor in an MMA bout. However, that doesn’t mean that McGregor won’t incorporate some mixed martial arts into his boxing showdown.

UFC President Dana White has already gone on record by saying that McGregor is contractually forbidden from throwing kicks, knees, or any other MMA techniques against Mayweather. However, McGregor is not necessarily one who goes along with the rules, which could lead to him going outside of the box.

Joe Rogan, who is a long-time commentator for the UFC, can’t wait for McGregor and Mayweather to go at it. He stated that on the latest episode of the Joe Rogan Experience with guest Morgan Murphy (h/t Jed Meshew of MMA Fighting) that he would like to see McGregor abandon his contract and knock out ‘Money’ with a high kick.

“[If McGregor kicked Mayweather], that would be f**ked up, There’s probably some stipulations in the contract that say, ‘you can’t get him in an armbar or choke him.’

“[But] could you imagine? He would be a god damn folk hero. If they got in close and Floyd was shucking and juking on the outside, and he threw a jab to cover up a left high kick and that left high kick necks him? Just clang! And you see Floyd go limp – and he would go limp. He’s never been high kicked like that. Jesus that would be crazy.”

Obviously, there would be consequences if McGregor did that as he would lose millions for breaking the rules of his contract as well probably face a lawsuit for misconduct. For someone who is all about that money, it would be a problem for McGregor.

Although it would be the dumbest move of McGregor’s career, Rogan believes it would be totally worth it.

“Would it be worth it? It would, but it would f**k everything up because no one would ever trust another fighter from MMA to ever fight a boxer in a boxing match again,” he said.

Mayweather vs. McGregor is set to go down on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    Yeah, and he’d be a Superhero if he snuck up on him and kicked him in the head by that logic. What a dumbass thing to say 🙁 But Conor fans would surely think it’s great, but why humor them?

      Yeah I noticed that Rogan is all serious with his guests and will call them out for being silly and get all annoyed at them…. and then randomly Rogan himself goes off on a childish tangent and says something stupid. I’m a huge Mac fan and I have hated Money since I can remember, but I wouldn’t wanna see some bush league sht like that

    Less weed, Joe.

  • Jamie Eyles

    This is the same steroid-munching weed-toking moron that literally had tears in his eyes because he was so “privileged” to be speaking to Lousey and called her the “best ever”.

    Go away Joe, you lost all credibility. I respect Goldberg more.

      Joe and Ronda are more than you will ever be and thats fact….
      Go away meatcrusher. Your years of jealous rants are boring.
      Continue to pretend being an aussie since being who you are and where you live is humiliating 🙂

        He cant help it. Being a jealous loser is in his DNA

      LoL I forgot about that shit.

    Joe Rogan – If you believe in Jesus you are not Intelligent!

    Augustine, Aquinas, Descartes: all morons!

    Joe Rogan, who thinks it would be a great idea for Conor McGregor to kick Floyd Mayweather in the head in a boxing match: superior!

    Wait: maybe Joe Rogan’s the fool?

    Floyd’s plan for Aug 25, 2017: Take no risks and make him miss, punish him for every mistake. Play with him like a neglected old toy that you throw around the ring for a few rounds, until you get bored with it.Then you finally break the boytoy for good by knocking that ragdoll through the ropes onto the floor. You do a little celebration dance, curse at the camera and take home $400,000,000. Conor won’t touch him. (BTY, I don’t like Mayweather, at all.)
