After hearing Joe Rogan’s comments during UFC 194, it’s really no surprise that he’s talking about Jose Aldo doing steroids, again…
Former UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo had a pretty rough ride at UFC 194. He came in to the title unification match as a slight underdog, with the promotion and Reebok pretty much breathing down his neck, and put in the worst performance of his career so far. For the Brazilian it was just about as bad as it could have turned out, and now he’s left with a lot of choices to make.
On top of all this, a rather controversial clip did the rounds in the days after UFC 194, where Joe Rogan can be heard commentating on Aldo’s ‘soft’ physique. Here’s the video.
Rogan: Look how smooth his body looks.
Producer 1: Yeah, he looks good, huh Joe?
Rogan: No, he looks soft.
Producer 1: Oh he does?
Rogan: Yeah, he looks soft.
Producer 2: I agree Joe, I agree.
Producer 1: Around the middle you’re saying?
Producer 2: Yep, yep, he looks soft.
Rogan: He looks deflated.
Producer 2: He looks soft, actually. You’re right.
Rogan: He looks way different. But it could be that he’s done a lot of cardio. Don’t want to jump to conclusions. (producers talking about technical shit here, losing signal etc)
Producer 1: Who do you like Joe?
Rogan: Right now? I think I like Conor.
Producer 1: Same here.
Rogan: Aldo looks nervous as fuck too.
Quite clearly the UFC color commentator feels there’s something a little off about Jose Aldo’s physique, but we didn’t really get an in depth explanation as to why exactly he felt that way. Until now.
