Joe Rogan in one of the earlier episodes of The Joe Rogan Experience had a very interesting speech. Among other things, he mentioned former UFC champion Conor McGregor and his problem with a broken leg. Joe Rogan is convinced that the Irishman will come back stronger than ever and very soon, this really does not surprise us considering that we all know how much Rogan loves Conor.
“If it wasn’t for his leg snap, he’s still in the prime of his career. But that leg snap is a real problem,” Rogan said on a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience. “I mean, if he does, he’ll be the first.
And if anybody does, maybe he can do it. If anybody can do it, maybe it’s him because he snapped his leg in the prime of his career. Anderson was a little older. I believe he was 36 or 37 when he snapped his leg. Chris Weidman was a little older.
Some of the greatest fighters like Anderson Silva have never fully recovered from this kind of injury
McGregor was supposed to return by the end of the year and fight Michael Chandler, but due to some permits, that match was postponed.
We will see how the popular Irishman will prepare and recover from his injury, if he is the way we are used to, he will surely come back in style. Now he has a lot of money and now he needs to prove to his critics that he didn't fight just for money.
“It’s a hard one to come back from. Nobody really comes back from that one. You have to have plates, and also, you’ve got to think the differences – you’re kicking, you’re taking kicks. Guys are going to kick you in that shin for sure.
They’re going to kick you in your calf. (You’ll have) nerve damage – all the above. I don’t know the extent of how much damage was done, but it’s been two years”. as quoted by MMAJunkie. “I just think that if anybody can do it, it’s going to be Conor,” Rogan said.
“If anyone is going to come back from that and fight again, it’s going to be Conor. But it’s that famous Marvin Hagler quote: ‘It’s hard to get out of bed and run in the cold when you’re sleeping in silk sheets.’ When you’re the champ and you’re rich as f*ck like he is, he doesn’t have to do nothing forever. He’s got generational wealth, but he’s still in the prime of his athletic career”.
