In the latest episode of Joe Rogan Experience, the UFC commentator welcomed Till Jones as his guest. Both discussed the rise of the 18-year-old Dagestani sensation.

“He’s everywhere though,” Rogan said. “They’re doing an amazing job with him, I have to say. Mini Khabib. Whoever’s handling him is doing a f***ing phenomenal job. Because he’s like eighteen, right? He’s everywhere.”

Rogan added later that even though he didn’t know his name at first, he saw his videos every time he opened his social media account.

“It’s incredible how quickly they’ve elevated this guy’s platform so quickly. It’s like that one little video caught fire, and it wasn’t that long ago, and then all of a sudden there’s this massive push behind him and I see him everywhere. Every time I open up Instagram I see a little video of him.”

Joe Rogan and The Rock have an interaction

Imagine the scenario when one of the biggest podcast celebrities and one of the biggest movie stars in the world interact over Instagram. This is what happened recently when Dwayne Johnson, (aka The Rock), replied to one of the posts of Rogan on WWE.

In the post, Rogan said he was looking into some WWE documentaries and found it interesting. However, he also added, “Maybe I’m really high, but I think I am now beginning to truly understand pro wrestling.”

His post though caught the attention of the ‘Great One’. The former full-time pro wrestler replied to Rogan and said, “At one time, it was the best job in the world. One day we’ll get drunk (or high) and talk about it. Or talk about it first then get f**ked up.”
