Joe Rogan rips Conor McGregor over acting difficulty claims go act in Road House or fight Khabib again

Long-time UFC color-commentator, Joe Rogan has hit out at ex-two-division champion, Conor McGregor – urging him to decide between which is more difficult for him: acting in Road House or face the prospect of fighting unbeaten berserker, Khabib Nurmagomedov for a second time – amid apparent Hollywood difficulty. 

McGregor, a former undisputed lightweight and featherweight champion, made his big screen debut over the course of last week – with the release of a Road House remake, starring as a lead antagonist alongside award-winning actor, Jake Gyllenhaal.

And receiving his fair share of both praise and condemnation for his acting ability, McGregor, who welcomed the chance to appear in Hollywood projects again, claimed acting proved to be more difficult for him than mixed martial arts.

“Listen to me, that’s not true,” Joe Rogan said of Conor McGregor’s claims during a recent Joe Rogan Experience episode. “Even for him. Okay: Act in Road Hosue or fight Khabib again? Shut the f*ck up, that is crazy talk. He broke his f*cking leg in a fight. He broke his leg. Like that’s harder. That is way harder than f*cking acting. The guy’s promoting a movie, he’s a great promoter.”
