Joe Rogan Acknowledges Rules Are Different For Conor McGregor: “He’s Worth so Much Money”

Conor McGregor

Since Conor McGregor’s highly publicized incident at the media day for UFC 223, which injured both Michael Chiesa and Ray Borg, there’s been no indication that the UFC is going to discipline the star. Based off comments Joe Rogan recently made, it doesn’t sound like the commentator expects any long term suspensions to be handed to McGregor, by the UFC.

While discussing the incident recently on his podcast, Rogan had this to say (quote via MMA Fighting):

“He just keeps f**king up with this kind of stuff and no one’s saying, ‘Get rid of him!’” said Rogan. “He’s worth so much money. It’s really fascinating. Imagine if Ray Borg and him switched sides. If Ray Borg showed up with all his boys and was screaming and yelling and threw a dolly at the window, it’s a done deal forever. Think about Paul Daley. Paul Daley must be at home going, ‘Motherf**ker! F**k Dana White!’

“Until you get to that stratosphere that Conor McGregor – there’s so much money to be made, that’s the problem. The rules get bent. All Paul Daley did was throw a punch at Josh Kosheck after [fight was over]. It didn’t even connect! That could have been sorted out.”

McGregor was charged on three counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief  following the melee, which took place in Brooklyn, New York.
