‘You Picked the Wrong Dude’ – Joe Rogan Says Heckler Spoke ‘s—t’ to UFC Champ Leon Edwards



It’s a good thing Joe Rogan was there to prevent the worst from happening when a heckler decided to be a s—thead for Leon Edwards.

During a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan and his guest Tom Segura recounted the time someone disrespected the new UFC welterweight champion.

“Somebody talked to somebody you were with who is a fighter,” Segura said. “Someone is talking shit to a UFC fighter that Joe is with and Joe is like, ‘Look, man. I know you’ve made a lot of mistakes in your life, but you’re about to’ make a serious one. I mean, if you talk shit to someone like that who gets mad, that’s the worst [thing].

“Let me just tell you who it is,” Rogan replied. “It was Leon Edwards. A guy was talking bullshit to Leon Edwards and I said, “You’re making a big mistake.” And I say, ‘Just let me step in here. First, you’re irrelevant. You walk up to him for no fucking reason and choose the wrong guy. I’m like, ‘He’s one of the best fighters on planet Earth.’ “

Crisis averted!

Coming off a ten-fight winning streak, Edwards earned his first UFC championship opportunity against Kamaru Usman at UFC 278 last August. The ‘Nigerian Nightmare’ was 1-0 to ‘Rocky’, having handed him a unanimous decision loss at UFC on FOX 17 nearly seven years ago. This time Edwards got his revenge and stunned the world with a “Comeback of the Year” KO of Usman in the final minute of their highly anticipated rematch.

Now 1-1, Edwards and Usman are set to complete their trilogy when the UFC returns to London with a ‘badass’ card next year.
