Joe Rogan has added a new piece of art to his studio, and it’s one Conor McGregor supporters will probably like. See this piece, which is essentially a grid composed of Conor McGregor’s mugshot, below.
This McGregor mugshot, which has quickly become a fixture in MMA folklore, was snapped shortly after the Irishman went ballistic in Brooklyn, infamously throwing a dolly through the window of a bus carrying a number of UFC 223 fighters. This rampage left two UFC 223 fighters, Ray Borg and Michael Chiesa, with injuries that were severe enough to force them out of their respective fights.
At present, McGregor is waiting for what is sure to be a tidal wave of legal ramifications to break. He will likely face blow-black from the New York State Athletic Commission, the Barclays Center, Chiesa and Borg, and anybody else who suffered as the result of his actions.
While Joe Rogan has proudly decorated his studio with Conor McGregor’s mugshot, he recently suggested that he finds it “fucked up” how the former champion has received “special treatment” in the wake of his rampage. If any other fighter had done what the Irishman did in Brooklyn, after all, they’d like be serving coffees from behind a Starbucks counter by now.
“I wouldn’t say it was a booze move, it’s more of a coke move,” Rogan recently said on his podcast, speculating on the vices that might have supercharged McGregor’s rampage. “Or it could just be part of his act. What if that dolly hit the part where Rose [Namajunas]was sitting and cut Rose’s face up? Michael Chiesa, I’m sad that he got cut but Chiesa is a tough bastard, he will be fine. He is probably pissed off, will sue Conor and make a shit load of money suing him. But what if it hit Rose? The fucking world would hate him. What if Rose was blinded in one eye because of that? Ray Borg got cuts in his eyes, so it’s entirely possible. He got glass shards in, he’s got a scratched cornea. Chiesa filed a complaint, which will lead to a lawsuit, I would imagine. If I was Conor, I would settle every fucking thing outside of a courtroom because if he loses and he gets a felony, he’s fucked. He probably won’t even be able to come into the country. Switch it around; imagine if Ray Borg threw that dolly and Conor was inside. He’d be gone, his career would be over. That’s one of the more fucked up things about this is that you know Conor is getting special treatment. He is, and that’s not good for anybody.”
