The long tenured voice of the UFC and podcaster, Joe Rogan spoke this week about the idea of CM Punk and not Conor McGregor, being the man to welcome Floyd Mayweather to the Octagon.
As reported by Bloody Elbow, Rogan on his self-titled, Joe Rogan Experience MMA Show, put a stop to the idea of Floyd Mayweather having a competitive MMA fight against Conor McGregor, but doesn’t say the same if Mayweather was set to face CM Punk.
“Floyd’s got a real chance,” Rogan said.
In his only fight in the UFC, CM Punk competed at 170 pounds, nearly 20 pounds heavier than Mayweather’s highest fight weight of 151 pounds, even in junior middleweight fights which featured an 154 pound weight limit.
While Rogan agrees Punk’s size advantage over Mayweather may give the former pro wrestler an advantage, the comedian turned color commentator backs up Mayweather’s boxing credentials, which may serve him well against Punk, even with the lack of experience inside the Octagon.
