Joe Rogan Say’s He’ll Arrange Training For Elon Musk To Fight Vladimir Putin One-On-One: “It Would Be So F*cking Epic”

Elon Musk

Somehow, 2022 just keeps getting crazier.

And with the ongoing war in Ukraine, as Russia continues to invade the sovereign nation and take countless innocent lives, it sounds like Elon Musk wants in on the action.

And not with just anyone… he wants to go one-on-one with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. In a series of tweets earlier this month, Elon challenged Putin to a hand-to-hand combat-style fight, saying (partially in Russian) that he was ready to go.

He also tagged the official Kremlin Twitter account, using Putin’s Russian name, as well as the Ukrainian spelling for Ukraine:

“I hereby challenge Владимир Путин to single combat. Stakes are Україна.”

He continued, asking for an answer from the Kremlin using Cyrillic script:

And apparently, Joe Rogan, a UFC commentator, comedian, and extremely well-known podcaster, has volunteered to set up the training for Elon, and texted him personally to let him know he was in.

On an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience last week, Joe was talking to his guest, Australian comedian Monty Franklin, about the whole situation:

“Elon Musk wants…. he wants to fight Putin. Have you seen that?

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.

It would be so fucking epic.” 

To which Monty replied:

“Are they fighting full martial arts, or doing boxing, or?”

And Rogan responded:

“I would say martial arts. You’d have to do martial arts. You’d have to, like, an MMA fight. It’s 2022, you know, fuck the boxing.”

He also pointed out the obvious size advantage Elon has over Putin, noting that he’s a “big guy,” ball-parking Elon’s height around 6′ 2″ in comparison to Putin’s reported height of around 5′ 7″.

Apparently, even Ukrainian Vice Prime Minister Mykhailo Fedorov is on board with the idea, saying in response to Elon’s tweet:

“I am sure that Elon Musk can send Putin to Jupiter.”

Russian official Dmitry Rogozin, director general of Roscosmos since 2018, responded to Elon in Russian, saying that he was a “little devil” who is “still young”, also adding:

“Compete with me weakling; It would only be a waste of time. Overtake my brother first.”

Putin clearly has a lot more on his mind than fighting Elon Musk in the worst possible way, but that would  certainly be pay-per-view worth watching…
