Rogan explains fat ref and Lance Bass comments

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

During the Tom Lawlor vs. Francis Carmont fight at UFC 154 on Saturday night, UFC announcer Joe Rogan turned to his esteemed colleague Mike Goldberg and said “I got a question for you – how fat can you be and still be a referee?”

This is the referee in question:

During the lead in to Johny Hendricks vs. Martin Kampmann, Rogan quipped “Martin Kampmann comes from behind more often than Lance Bass.”

This is Lance Bass, showing off his wrist tatto.

The Kanji reads “Jiu-Jits.”

Several male grandmothers on the Internet got up in arms over the remarks, to the point that Rogan addressed them on a recent Joe Rogan Experience podcast.
