The noted UFC color commentator, Joe Rogan, was absent from the commentary table at UFC 283.

The 55-year-old is also a seasoned comedian and former TV presenter apart from his UFC collaboration. Notably, Rogan’s podcast, ‘The Joe Rogan Experience’ has bagged the supreme spot on Spotify’s list of ‘Top Podcasts’ multiple times. The massive viewership of ‘JRE’ has also got him into trouble sometimes. Numerous episodes of ‘JRE’ were removed by Spotify after it sparked internal protests from their employees.

Peterson iterated that The College of Psychology had levied as equivalent to 13 lawsuits against” him. He was also disgusted by how literally anyone on this earth could place a complaint against his actions.

Peterson stated, “Now the reason I call them lawsuits is because their actions are taken on behalf of a complainant. Now, the complainant can be anyone anywhere in the world who complains about me for any reason”. The psychologist also mentioned that the complainants also “don’t have to be former clients, they don’t have to be someone” he has ever met.
