Joe Rogan has accused Conor McGregor of using performance enhancing drugs, but the Irishman has fired back at the commentator turned podcaster with his own brutal sledge.
On a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, the UFC commentator said McGregor’s bulked-up physique may be the result of taking some, er, not-so-natural substances.
McGregor has been out of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for several months now and hasn’t been testing all year.
In the meantime, he’s been consistent in showing off his jacked physique.
"He’s taking his shirt off and posing constantly, and he looks like his pi** would melt that USADA cup," Rogan said.
"Like, it would just like burn a hole right through the bottom of that USADA cup."
Rogan added: “The weird thing is that there is a loophole in USADA that allows you to get out of the testing pool. You can get out of the testing pool and just juice up.”
McGregor wasn't going to take it lying down, though.
In his usual feisty fashion, the Irish fighter took a jab at Rogan’s own physique.
He also pointed out Rogan never fought in the MMA Octagon.
"Joe looks like his pi** melts his knickers," McGregor said in a since-deleted tweet.
"In the company that long and never took a fight hahaha @ufc oh tae kwon do competition, call the cops hahahahaah."
Accompanying the tweet was a side-by-side image of Rogan at 25 years old and 52-years-old, with both pictures showing off his muscular body.
Yeah, there was no way McGregor wasn't going to return fire, especially considering the 34-year-old has previously used PEDs.
According to MMA Junkie, McGregor gained permission from the bigwigs at the UFC to do so after suffering a broken tibia sustained during his trilogy bout with Dustin Poirier in 2021.
He was granted permission to do so, which had raised eyebrows form the likes of Rogan.
But with the PED usage came some conditions.
In order to be able to enter the Octagon once more, the Irishman will have to spend at least six months in the USADA program before competing in the UFC.
That means his earliest possible return to the ring may be July 2023 or thereabouts.
Basically, we aren't seeing him in an MMA fight for a while.
Rogan also accused Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson of taking steroids following the recent Liver King scandal.
While Dwayne hasn't responded to Joe's accusations, The Rock actually has confessed to using steroids before - when he was a teenager.
In an interview with MTV back in 2009, the wrestler-turned-actor revealed: "I tried it.
"Me and my buddies tried it back in the day when I was 18 or 19. Didn't know what we were doing."
