Episode number #1554 saw the duo talk about a wide range of things and even broke down the public hate West faces. The UFC commentator’s interaction with the rapper caused him to change his perspective. However, the UFC middleweight contender, Sean Strickland, doesn’t believe anything West says.

Fans quickly hopped on the thread to share their thoughts about the verbal rant. The micro-blogging website has hosted many rants of the middleweight fighter, and this one was no different.

While some users backed the UFC fighter, others wished to see him make an appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience.

Another user pondered whether he was actively preparing for his fight against the rising mixed martial artist and world champion kickboxer, Alex Pereira. The kickboxer holds not one but two victories over current middleweight champion Israel Adesanya.

Fans of Kanye West backed the rapper and corrected the MMA fighter for misunderstanding him. This user stated that the West is regarded as the biggest icon for good reason.
