Joe Rogan has a crush on Brazilian jiu-jitsu phenom Gordon Ryan.
The popular podcast host recently explained how Ryan effectively uses intimidation to gain an advantage over his opponents. In his own words, it’s as if Ryan “put poison” on his opponents before they even lock themselves up. During episode #1872 of The Joe Rogan Experiencethe UFC commentator said:
“They [Ryan’s opponents] just realize it’s good, then they get scared. When I say scared, I don’t mean terrified. What I mean is they feel the moment. Every one of these world class fighters that is going up against another world class fighter at that moment, when the match is about to start and it’s all on the line, they have no idea who’s going to win. They all have a sense of wild anticipation.”
Rogan also believes Ryan is capable of getting his opposition across by looking great, talking trash and having a spectacular track record in competitive wrestling. Spotify’s flagship podcast host added:
“But with Gordon it’s worse because no one beats him. He walks through everyone. He talks shit and he’s a giant handsome dude who talks shit.”
