The Joe Rogan Experience is a show which not only talks about one but gravitates to vast subjects. But the show host and UFC legend, Joe Rogan, rarely misses chiming in about the UFC superstars.

McGregor punched the man supposedly for refusing to accept a glass of his Proper No. Twelve Irish whiskey. In fact, Rogan earlier had a notion that McGregor probably just touched the guy on the face. “Wild man, do wild s**t. Not good to smack that guy at the bar, though. I watched that again. I thought it was like a touch… Looks like almost like a punch. Yeah; he hit him. I misspoke,” said Rogan.


Reportedly, the altercation happened ahead of verbal exchange. “I don’t know. Maybe the guy said something really bad to him. A guy at the bar doesn’t want your whiskey… The Wild s**t like grabbing the guy’s phone and stomping on it. He’s just a little too crazy,” said Rogan. A video reported by TMZSports shows the infamous incident between McGregor and the patron.
