Rogan, known for his precise analysis of fights, remarked in his post, “I’m fascinated by extreme specialists; fighters that have one technique that they have mastered to an extreme level.”

Being fascinated by the Brazilian fighter’s legacy in kickboxing, Rogan said, “One of the best examples of this ever is the great kickboxer @glaubefeitosa. Feitosa is THE master of the question mark kick. The efficiency and fluidity of his execution of this technique is unparalleled in the sport. He would literally go over the guard of his opponents and down on the head or neck with spectacular results. For a lot of people – me included, he changed what people thought was possible with this move.”

Rogan himself, being an amateur kickboxer, has a greater pull towards kickboxing fights. Glaube Feitosa was a Kyokushin Karate legend who entered Kickboxing in his twenties to dominate the sports through his remarkable question mark kick or Brazilian kick.

Feitosa is revered as the pioneer of the technique. He has victories over notable kickboxing pioneers Remy Bonjasky, Semmy Schilt, Alistair Overeem, Ruslan Karaev, and more.

The question mark kick has become a splendid weapon for many supreme fighters in the sport. Notably, Israel Adesanya, famed for his elegant and silky techniques with a surprising angle of attack, has been spotted employing the question mark kick several times.

Rogan, being a Martial Arts fanatic and analyst, has his interest and knowledge cultivated in the sport with great depth. His love for kicking seems to be never-ending.

At 19 years old Rogan won the US Open Tae Kwon Do Championship and became a full-time Taekwondo teacher in Boston.

He gave up teaching his martial art and embarked on a career in stand-up comedy. His love of the sport drove him to obtain a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from the prominent Jiu-Jitsu academy, 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu. In his podcasts, Rogan has been seen exploring a variety of martial arts, including Silat, Krav Maga, Muay Thai, and several others.
