Joe Rogan, speaking on a recent episode of ‘The Joe Rogan Experience’ podcast weighed in on the potential of such a match-up saying:

“I love it. If Jake Paul really decides to fight Anderson, that’s a very, very, very tough fight. Anderson, if he just went straight into boxing, would have been a f*cking world champion.”
