In the aftermath of Conor McGregor’s knockout win over Jose Aldo, a video was leaked in which UFC commentator, Joe Rogan, could be heard speaking about the Brazilian’s “soft” and “deflated” physique.
“He looks way different”, said Rogan, before adding “I don’t want to jump to any conclusions”. The implication seemed to be that Rogan believed the UFC’s new drug testing policy had already impacted on Aldo’s physical condition.
On the latest episode of his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan once again spoke about the issue of Aldo’s changing appearance and even revealed a rather disturbing story about a mishap that occurred during an attempt to test the fighter earlier in the year.
It is well known that one of Aldo’s pre-UFC 189 urine samples was discarded after his coach, Andre Pederneiras, called Brazilian police to express doubt over the credentials of the Nevada State Athletic Commission tester that was sent to collect it. It turned out that Ben Mosier was not in possession of a valid working visa and therefore the sample never made it to the lab.
Rogan briefly mentions this situation, but then adds an extra element that will heap even more suspicion on the recently dethroned former featherweight king.
“When they finally did give a urine sample, he tripped and spilled his p***”, claimed Rogan.
