Joe Rogan Said He Offered To Train Elon Musk For His Proposed 'epic' One-On-One Fight With Vladimir Putin

Podcaster and UFC commentator Joe Rogan said he offered to train Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk after the latter challenged Russian President Vladimir Putin to a one-on-one fight earlier this month.

Rogan said on a March 22 episode of his podcast, "The Joe Rogan Experience," that he had contacted Musk and floated the idea of Musk training with him. 

"Elon Musk wants — he wants to fight Putin. Have you seen that?" Rogan asked his guest, Australian comedian Monty Franklin. 

"I offered my services. I texted him. I said, 'Dude I will arrange all of your training.' 'If you really do fight Putin,' I said, 'I will arrange all your training,'" Rogan said. "It would be so fucking epic." 

"Are they fighting full martial arts, or doing boxing, or?" Franklin then asked Rogan. 

"I would say martial arts. You'd have to do martial arts. You'd have to, like, an MMA fight," Rogan responded. "It's 2022. Y'know, fuck the boxing."

Rogan then went on to say that Musk is a "strange character," while appearing to evaluate the 50-year-old entrepreneur's chances in a fight with the 69-year-old Russian leader.

"First of all, he's a very big man. He's not small. And Putin is smaller than me," Rogan said. "Elon is quite a bit bigger than him." 

"Elon is probably 6'2," Rogan added. "And he's big. He's a big guy!" 

"And [Musk] apparently, according to him, he had some match with a world champion sumo wrestler back in the day for fun, and he fucked his neck up, like, throwing this guy outside of the ring. But he actually defeated some world champion sumo wrestler," Rogan said, referring to a story Musk had told him.

On March 14, Musk tweeted a challenge to Putin, offering to face the Russian president in single combat to decide the fate of Ukraine. The challenge prompted Putin ally, Chechen warlord Ramzan Kadyrov, to respond to Musk on Telegram, saying the CEO would be destroyed in the fight. 

Musk then doubled down on the challenge, tweeting: "If he is afraid to fight, I will agree to use only my left hand, and I am not even left-handed."He also tweeted that Putin could "bring his bear" to their fight, posting a composite image of a shirtless Putin riding a bear, next to what appeared to be an image of Musk with a Boring Company flamethrower, under the words "Choose your fighter."
