As Joe Rogan has exploded in popularity in recent years, many new fans don't realize that he has extensive Martial arts experience.
In this page, we will cover Joe Rogan's MMA record, what martial arts experience he has, and a time when he almost had a match with another celebrity.
Joe Rogan's MMA Record
Joe Rogan's MMA record is 0-0 as he has never officially fought in Mixed Martial arts. However, he was a full contact 4-time Taekwondo state champion, is a Jiu-Jitsu black belt in the Gi and No Gi (10th planet Jiu-Jitsu), and also competed in kickboxing ending a 2-1 record.
Rogan has also been a long-time commentator of the UFC, and Dana White has praised Rogan for being a staple in helping the sport grow.
Although Rogan has no official MMA bouts under his belt, he is an expert in Jiu-Jitsu as well as Taekwondo, on top of having watched the sport for decades.
Is Joe Rogan Good at BJJ?
Joe Rogan's Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructor, Jean Jacques Machado joined Rogan on his podcast and mentioned that Rogan was so strong and tough to sweep, and couldn't sweep him for half an hour.
He went on to say that he is 'The Real Deal' and that Rogan's willingness to roll and wrestle with anyone was impressive.
At one point he also mentioned that Rogan had the idea for Machado to be put in a cage versus someone else for Fear Factor as a challenge.
Machado then said that he didn't need him to do that, as Rogan could do it and handle everyone.
Eventually, Fear Factor would call it off as there would be too many legal implications for two people to fight one another on the show.
Rogan's Celebrity Fight With Wesley Snipes
Rogan and Snipes have had their differences and have engaged in verbal trash talk over several years.
Snipes is a 5th-degree black belt in Shotokan Karate and a 2nd-degree black belt in Hapkido.
Due to both of their martial arts backgrounds, the two engaged in talks that they would face off in an MMA fight to settle their differences.
Rogan was said to have trained for 5 months for their fight but Snipes would back out of the fight after an investigation was launched by the IRS regarding tax evasion.
Can Joe Rogan Beat a UFC Fighter?
Although Rogan has done martial arts throughout most of his life and has extensive experience in both Taekwondo and Jiu-jitsu, he is also in his mid 50's.
No, Rogan would not beat a UFC fighter, and he would be the first to tell you this.
It would be a near-impossible task to beat a high-level professional who practices their craft every day, at their craft, and the UFC is no different.
