“I think Chad Mendes should be the favorite. Chad Mendes knocked Ricardo Lamas, dead. Dead. With one punch. He smashes dudes. He goes after guys. He’s a destroyer.”

“See, I disagree. Mendes easily could be as big a star as Conor McGregor. He wouldn’t talk like Conor McGregor did, but neither did [former UFC welterweight champion] Georges St-Pierre. Georges St-Pierre was the biggest pay-per-view star of all time. Because he was a gentleman. Georges St-Pierre got a million pay-per-view buys.”

UFC commentator and comedian Joe Rogan talked on his podcast about the upcoming fight between Conor McGregor and Chad Mendes, taking place this Saturday at UFC 189.

Rogan is team Mendes and thinks the fighter should be considered the favorite going into the interim title fight.
