Has Joe Rogan Ever Considered Competing in UFC? What would happen if he did?

He's a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, so he has experience, and his body type looks like he would be placed into a middle weight to light heavy weight division. what would happen if Joe Rogan competed, could he stand a chance? I think he could, has he ever mentioned getting in the octogan?

If he fought a MMA regular, he would die. He'd only do okay in some sort of exhibition fight against another celeb or something.

he never would but who knows...

He practices TKD and BJJ so he can probably fight but that doesn't mean he can take a punch. I don't think anyone could say unless they've seen him train.

First joe Rogan would fight middleweight if he lost no weight at all. He proably could fight 170. I mean the guy is like what 5'8? Also he would get his face kicked in.

I bet he would get in a "nice leg kick" or two.

Yeah couldnt see Joe doin too well, there are alot of ppl trained in tae kwon do as a self defense mechanism...doesn't actually mean there any good at fighting, and being a one dimentional fighter in the ufc doesnt work.

They tried setting up a celebrity UFC fight between Rogan and Wesley Snipes. Nothing ever came from it. Rogan trains with Eddie Bravo and a bunch of MMA fighters at 10th Planet JJ. Rogan could definitely hold his own against average guys, but he'd get owned by a skilled MMA fighter.
