Joe Rogan has had a long career. He started training in Taekwondo in his teens and turned to jiu-jitsu. Apart from martial arts, Rogan has been a stand-up comedian and a successful UFC presenter. A long career, especially one that involves fighting, can not remain injury free. Rogan has also faced his fair share of health issues.

Joe Rogan was talking to Sean O’Malley in JRE MMA show 133. Sean O’Malley said that he wanted to get his nose fixed. He, however, was skeptical because he had heard that the nose gets weak after surgery. Rogan advised him to get the surgery, as the benefits were far more than the complications.
