Welcome to Midnight Mania!
I don’t think Conor McGregor is going to be a guest on The Joe Rogan Experience (JRE) anytime soon. The Irish superstar is not happy with the podcasting legend and longtime UFC color commentator, particularly after recent remarks about his vacation from the USADA testing program.
In order to recover from his gnarly broken leg, McGregor stepped out of the testing pool, enabling him to freely use whatever medicine his doctors advised best. In the process, however, McGregor raised eyebrows by also putting on a ton of muscle, which naturally resulted in some performance enhancing drug (PED) speculation ahead of his return to action.
While talking with a PED expert on JRE, Rogan dropped the following comment, “He’s taking his shirt off and posing constantly and he looks like his piss would melt that USADA cup. Like it would just like burn a hole right through the bottom of that USADA cup.”
The former double champ certainly did not appreciate the speculation, and he was quick to turn the tables on Rogan. In a since-deleted Tweet, McGregor questioned what supplements Rogan is taking to look so muscular in his fifties, as well as why the jiu-jitsu black belt never stepped into the cage himself.
“Joe looks like his piss melts his knickers, in the company that long and never took a fight hahaha @ufc oh tae kwon do competitions, call the cops hahahahaah”
There’s a considerable chance that Rogan will be on the mic whenever McGregor does step into the Octagon again. If so, there’s another storyline to consider ahead of superstar’s comeback!

Jan came into the UFC with a 17-3 record, achieving numerous accolades in KSW.
Despite this, he was +245 against Ilir Latifi in his debut.
Jan made a massive statement with this win.
