Joe Rogan has long been one of the most influential people in the bjj community and out of it. The 51 year old stand-up comedian, mixed martial arts color commentator, podcast host, and businessman is notorious for his intense work outs – after all he is a black belt both under Rigan Machado and the 10th Planet system.
Rogan recently revealed just how he pushes through those moments of intense pain and lack of motivation to his friends Tom Segura and Bert Kreischer.
Rogan said: ” It’s about r*pe and m*rder.”
When his friends were a little stunned Rogan elaborated:
“My head’s filled with it. Stopping r*pists and stopping m*rderers and k*lling child m*lesters that’s what I think about. K*lling bad people. That’s what I do when I get tired. That’s what I do when I get tired. If I get tired I think about like saving someone I care about. I think about stopping someone who’s trying to m*rder someone I love. “
In this interview with fellow BJJ black belt and A.I. specialist Lex Fridman talks about his violent side:
“When I work out, I watch the John Wick scene where he destroys everyone, like 30 times in a row.”
“That guy (me) is scary. I don’t like that guy.”
He reveals a lot in this video:
