Joe Rogan isn't here for the UFC giving special treatment to Conor McGregor following Brooklyn fight

Joe Rogan's opinion is strong; however given the UFC and Dana White's words being followed by inaction on Conor McGregor's status, the UFC commentator appears to be hitting the right note.

While Joe Rogan is a fan of Conor McGregor, in a vacuum, he isn't at all pleased with his actions nor the action of his employer, the UFC.

 

After Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg were both injured by McGregor's tossing of a dolly at a packed bus during the infamous melee at Barclays Center ahead of UFC 223, Rogan talks about how the situation could have been even worse.

 

But then also takes the UFC to task during his conversation with light heavyweight contender Alexander Gustafsson.

Switch it around; imagine if Ray Borg threw that dolly and Conor was inside. Hed be gone, his career would be over. Thats one of the more f-d-up things about this, is that you know Conor is getting special treatment. He is, and thats not good for anybody.

"But what if it hit Rose? The f*cking world would hate him," Rogan exclaimed. "What if Rose was blinded in one eye because of that? Ray Borg got cuts in his eyes, so its entirely possible."

 

"He got glass shards in, hes got a scratched cornea. Chiesa filed a complaint, which will lead to a lawsuit, I would imagine," he continued. "If I was Conor, I would settle every f*cking thing outside of a courtroom because if he loses and he gets a felony, he's f*cked. He probably wont even be able to come into the country."

 

From a lot of standpoints, it's difficult to ascertain what the UFC will or won't do, but Rogan appears to be correct about their treatment of McGregor and settling potential lawsuits. The Irishman, frankly, is highly unlikely to receive any jail time whatsoever, with a massive fine and probation the likely outcome.
