Mar 08, 2024
How are you? Thanks for coming Hey, what's up? Yeah, first of all, the question I have to ask is about news radio that people say: Will this show be here next year? It will go? Have they told you anything yet? No no. They haven't told us anything, we supposedly found out in about a week, but to

night

is the end or the end I was excited about it. Yes, yes, it's very fun. We did an episode of Titanic, but it takes place at a radio station. As? Do that, actually, they, we, we, did, what if you knew that news radio was not a radio station but a luxury Cru cruise ship, so it's a lot of fun.

Shameless Shameless Bastard I had nothing to do with it, okay, uh, I want to I'm asking you about I'm looking at the plug, what you're here to promote to

night

, besides the radio news, it says Ultimate Fighting Championship and I'm curious about that because You're an actor in a comedy, right? fight in an Ultimate Fighting Championship no, no, I only interview fighters and that's something you do regularly because you're a fighter yourself, aren't you okay? I was, you know at one point, now I'm just a contestant on You know, I just interview guys, right, it's fun, man, it's a weird show, it's wild, it's cool because Ultimate Fighting

explains

this to people who don't know Ultimate Fighting, you can do whatever you want there, no, that's not exactly the case. is that he's in a cage, he's in an octagon and it's like a boxing combination, the moment you say he's in a cage, you lose people's respect, why is it like that, you can't escape, that's the purpose, it's just that it's like, They're great athletes, I mean, they've got Olympic gold medals and Jiu-Jitsu world champions and boxers, and it's all like a combination of martial arts has always been like, you know, it's always been.

joe rogan explains ultimate fighting late night with conan o brien...

There have been questions in martial arts like what if a karate? a guy fought a judo guy or and what the Ultimate Fighting Championship did was say, let's find out and they put them all together, it's cool, uhhuh, you know, then, uh, it gets pretty intense, I mean, yeah, it's pretty amazing , You know? I'm like a stimulation freak, you know, I love driving fast and seeing crazy things and stuff like that to me is very exciting, you know, it's like that, and there are some of the smartest guys you'd ever want to meet, you'd think. these guys would be a bit dumb, they've been beaten but they're not, they're really very bright guys, it's very technical, well, anyone who goes into a cage for a living, you start to question yourself, you know right away, that happens all the time. natural form.
joe rogan explains ultimate fighting late night with conan o brien
I'm sure they are smart, although it depends on how much money you can get to get into the cage. Oh yeah, I'd put myself in the cage if they paid me. How much would you have to pay? Not much. I would just be I want to be in the cage. I would be excited. I would be intrigued to be in the cage. I wouldn't want to fight with anyone. I'd like to just be some kind of referee or something, but I would complain about things, yeah, just look. around you can't hit me oh man now uh what what do you like because you said you really love watching action are you very critical when you go to see a movie like a Steven Seagal movie?
joe rogan explains ultimate fighting late night with conan o brien
Do those all those movies scare me? I just hate those movies, you wouldn't be, you wouldn't be in a Steven Seagal movie if I did gay porn before I did a Steven Seagal movie, absolutely thank you very much, now you're cheering because you want to see me. They make gay porn, are they animating? Oh monsters, I know, wait, I hate those movies, they're all horrible, they give a really bad performance of a martial artist, you know, the guys get kicked and they just get a little cut. In the eyebrow. and it looks kind of sexy, you know, they're horrible, bad movies where guys like to fight at the drop of a hat, there's always Steven like he kneels in front of a big group of thugs coming at me, come on . and they say oh no, you don't know, no, your ponytail is in your sash, oh, it's hysterical, they're horrible hor hor movies, you know, it's really bad, well, the fight sequence is, I mean, because it's always Like 50 guys confront him, they do the ragon train thing where he gets in the middle and they all surround him and come one at a time and then he gets into the next guy.
They are horrible because you think that if they all came in at once it would be a big problem Pony I also love that euphemism it would be a problem it would probably be a problem I think anything would be a problem what is the most realistic of the

fighting

movies as far as you think It's good, you know, I mean, there are, you know, there are movies where people fight and they get knocked out, those are the most realistic, because when people fight and they get hit, you get hurt. I think one of the problems is that people watch those movies and think that if a situation arises in a bar, it's going to be like one of those movies where there's a real fight and I've never been there, people are screaming trying to escape and the drinks fly, it's not that fun.
I haven't been in a real fight since I was a kid, you know they're stupid, you know that, but at least you know like Ultimate Fighting Championship, you know you have a referee and if it gets out of control it's very safe, I mean, no one in everything that happens, I mean, people die every day driving race cars, they die boxing every year, no one has died in the history of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, you know, it's very safe, does it ever degenerate? I mean, where people just slap each other, no, no, you never do it because you don't.
Never no, okay, because I think I mean, I would just think that when you can do so many different styles, you can box, you can do Jiu-Jitsu, it's hard to do those slaps while a guy is choking you unconscious. Degen loses, it's true, you can choke, you can choke in this SP, well, you can't grab like that, you choke with a similar technique, like there are CH jitsu techniques seriously, I think just choke is a caricature. you really can't, just if you could, it's easy to stop a guy from strangling you like that, someone gets behind you and puts you on some kind of thing where you gradually go to sleep, but it's safer because if you're like this a lot trouble, you can tap, which is called T, you submit, if you get into a lot of trouble, you just tap and the referee stops it immediately, but I would pass out before I could raise my hand to tap, that would be the problem.
Like the guy would keep me there uh that's me yeah that's what I'd do yeah I'd get in a big Three Stooges cartoon bed uh the Ultimate Fighting Championship this Friday on PPV if you can get it, they have a big problem with censorship, you know a lot of cable companies prevent it from airing because you know the image, you know,

fighting

in a cage, everyone says: what are you crazy and what is that human fight, but it's not like that ?, you know they are really skilled fighters, you know what they should do, they should do like in rooster, yes, you don't have to please your little boy, but you are in the CR, what happened?
They should dress the cage to look innocent and then it would be accepted to make it look like a little house, you know, they should put little shutters on the cage and little potted plants and a bird sound, come in with pillows, they decide to put up with the whole fight and do the same anyway. that appears regularly at the uh, you appear regularly at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas, uh, yes, I do, I do very well, Joe, thank you very much for coming, thanks for having me, yes, Joe Rogan, everyone, we'll take a break and we are right.
