Joe Rogan: 'Jake Paul is f****** good and he's got real f****** power'

Podcaster and UFC commentator Joe Rogan believes Jake Paul is looked on negatively because he is a YouTuber.

Rogan believes Jake Paul is the real deal and has brushed off suggestions his knockout win over Tyron Woodley was staged.

Paul took his record to (5-0) with a knockout win over former UFC Champion Tyron Woodley in their rematch last month. After outpointing Woodley in August, the former UFC welterweight champion stepped in for Tommy Fury and was brutally knocked out with a right hook in round six.

It was a shot which saw Woodley faceplant the canvas. However, critics of the YouTube sensation were quick to point out the punch was telegraphed and some suggested the fight was rigged.

A hand signal in the run up to the knockdown sent conspiracy theorists into overdrive, but what cannot be doubted is the 24-year-old's power.

And podcast star Rogan, joined by comedian Tim Dillion for episode 1752 of the Joe Rogan Experience, defended the former Disney Channel star.

"He's been saying he's suffering from slurring words and loss of memory already. It doesn't take long, if you spar a lot… he's f**king good though," Rogan said.

"People want to pretend he's not because he's a YouTube guy, the way he knocked out Tyron Woodley that is f**king skilful and he's got real f**king power.

"Meanwhile, the casuals are thinking it's fake. Have you seen that?

"They were saying there's a tell because he moves his hand, and he's like saying here, here comes a big right hand, Imma hit ya."

Paul, who is in the midst of a war of words with UFC president Dana White, recently set out his goals for 2022.

The Cleveland-born fighter has accused White of being 'selfish' and 'capitalistic' after refusing to increase fighter pay and up their healthcare cover.

Paul said he would retire from boxing and fight Jorge Masvidal in MMA if the UFC chief improved the conditions for his fighters.

But alongside his beef with White, he has set out his aims for the year which included baiting Floyd Mayweather.

Tongue-in-cheek he has offered to buy Mayweather Promotions to save them from bankruptcy and also hire a stylist for the retired, undefeated champion.

His fourth goal for the year was to: "Go 2 chiropractor 2 (sic) heal back from carrying the sport of boxing."

That provoked a response from former WBC cruiserweight champion Tony Bellew.

Bellew replied: "You couldn't carry the jockstrap of a proper BOXER son... please rephrase point 4!"
