UFC color commentator and BJJ black belt Joe Rogan has never been a fan of transgender athletes competing against cisgender women.
Rogan, for instance, loudly opposed Fallon Fox. Fox was once a man, but she transitioned to a woman and went on to win her first three fights in women’s mixed martial arts — all by way of finish.
Back in 2013, in an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience (quoted in Bleacher Report), Rogan opined:
I say if you had a d*ck at one point in time, you also have all the bone structure that comes with having a d*ck. You have bigger hands, you have bigger shoulder joints. You’re a f***ing man. That’s a man, OK? You can’t have… that’s… I don’t care if you don’t have a d*ck anymore…
It appears that Rogan’s opinions haven’t changed at all. In a recent episode of The JRE, Rogan told fellow stand-up comedian Tom Segura:
The [male] bone structure’s so different and people that deny that are f**king crazy.
Interestingly, Fallon Fox came up in the conversation as well. Rogan pointed out that Fox lost to “an actual woman” (Ashlee Evans-Smith). The UFC color commentator then made fun of people who would have been offended by him calling Smith “an actual woman.”
