Mac Danzig on the Joe Rogan Podcast

Hi,

i am listening to this right now and find it to be very interesting. A lot of MMA-talk, where Mac gives some insights of being a fighter and his thoughts of possible brain damage that might affect him/fighters like 15 years after retirement. Not only through fights, but through unnecessary hardcore training(hard sparring everyday). He talks about training more save, not only to avoid an injury like blowing your knee, but also not taking brain damage. And that it should be a trainers job to watch out for his athlete's health, which he believes that there's no trainer right now who really does that.

I haven't seen his TUF season and never knew much about him, but he seems like an intelligent and down to earth guy.

Kind of a long time at the beginning where the podcast sponsorship-talk is done.

Also what do you think of how much winning TUF should be a notable accomplishment in a fighters resume? Joe says, that it's a very great accomplishment bigger than just winning a fight, which might be true but also depends on the level of your opponent. At some point winning TUF becomes irrelevant and i don't think it being noted in the pre-fight facts is stupid. Ok he won 5 years ago, but that's irrelevant now.

Please no comments on what you think of Joe Rogan (and/or his podcasts). We've all read enough of all sides (haters/fans/neutrals).

EDIT: His estimate (said it might be a shot in the dark, but based on knowing so many fighters and what they do) on fighters using PEDs: at least 60% are on them all the time and 85-90% have at least tried or been on something.

I listened to this the other day. Made me actually like Mac Danzig, which I never expected.

Definitely worth a watch/listen.

I agree about the training too hard part. Shogun wrecked his body sparring way too hard. I heard one of his training partners say they'd get knocked out multiple times a week. Guaranteed brain damage.

Im sure ive seen something somewhere about Wand and his training, and that at some place he used to train (may have been chute box) that they had a 1 KO per practice rule where if you got KO'd you were done for the day.

Makes you think there were a lot of KOs in practice going on.
