Joe Rogan offers some high praise to ONE Championship over their policy with weight cutting. This comes after Rogan praised them for the honor aspect of the sport and the presentation of their product.

Rogan spoke with UFC star Khalil Rountree during a recent episode of his MMA podcast. According to the longtime UFC commentator, he thinks this policy is something that the UFC should’ve done a long time ago.

The way that this policy works is that fighters get tested for their weight and hydration throughout the fight week. Before fight night, if they don’t pass all of their hydrations tests then they don’t fight.

“It’s the right way to do it. We should have done it a long time ago in the UFC. I really think that,” said Rogan (H/T to APMMA.Net).

“(Failed weight cuts have been) ruining cards, and even more importantly, I think causing fighters to fight at less than their full potential. How many fighters got hit when they shouldn’t have gotten hit? Because, if they were recovered completely, if they didn’t have to recover from a weight cut, who knows? Maybe there are shots you ate that you wouldn’t have eaten. Especially for some guys cut a brutal amount of weight. It’s entirely possible that you could get hit with something you wouldn’t if you didn’t have to cut weight.”

Rountree added his take by noting that he thinks by doing this then they could fight more often and train smarter. It all goes back to cutting weight to make their fights.

“We could fight more often. And the training would be a lot better too because a lot of fighters spend the last three, four weeks of their fight camp trying to loss weight.”

Joe Rogan has been commentating for the UFC for over 20 years. However, one of the mixed martial arts (MMA) community’s most beloved personalities isn’t afraid to speak about other promotions in the sports as well.

For example, Rogan recently praised ONE Championship and their recent acquisitions of the likes of Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson, Sage Northcutt, Eddie Alvarez, and more. Rogan had this to say on a recent episode of his podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience” (via MMA News):

“I appreciate the way ONE FC handles things. They just concentrate on fighters being honorable and fighting their best, and fighting the best fighters they can fight. They don’t emphasize that s**t talking at all, they emphasize the martial arts aspects of it.”

Speaking to BJPenn.com recently, ONE CEO Chatri Sityodtong responded to Rogan’s kind comments:

“I’m a huge Joe Rogan fan. Obviously, he’s a lifelong martial artist too, a taekwondo blackbelt, a BJJ blackbelt. I have the utmost respect for him.

“I think because he’s a lifelong martial artist, he understands the deep authenticity of martial arts and he totally understands what we’re trying to do at ONE Championship, and what we’ve already achieved at ONE Championship in terms of mixed martial arts.

“It’s the sport of mixed martial arts done the right way, in terms of martial arts values. Honor, respect and humility, none of the trash talking or violence or anger.”
