AJ Agazarm made some waves after his KASAI Pro 2 super fight on Saturday night when he used his post fight interview to call out Joe Rogan and Eddie Bravo. Talking about the best talent in the competition circuit, AJ said, “Joe Rogan and Eddie Bravo don’t know jack sh*t about jiu-jitsu…They’re always trying to push an agenda.”
Adding fuel to the fire, AJ posted on his Instagram,
“I’ve decided to amend my comments, and pronounce Joe Rogan even STUPIDER, and less informed, than I did last night.”
I made some post-match comments last night regarding Joe Rogan's idiocy. Please understand those comments were made in haste, after the white-hot heat of battle against world-class competition. Upon further reflection, and after consulting with many of my peers in the BJJ/Grappling Community whose opinions I respect, I've decided to amend my comments, and pronounce Joe Rogan even STUPIDER, and less informed, than I did last night. Anyone using his opinion as a barometer of talent should walk into the sea. Ontem eu fiz alguns comentários em relação a idiotice do Joe Rogan. Favor compreender que esses comentários foram feitos no calor do momento, sem muito tempo pra pensar depois de uma luta dura contra um atleta de alto nível. Depois de uma reflexão mais intensa, além da consulta com vários ícones da nossa comunidade do Jiu Jitsu que respeito bastante, eu decidi me pronunciar novamente em relação a isso. Tenho que confessar que considero o Joe Rogan mais estupido e menos informado do que eu o considerei na noite passada. Qualquer um que considerar sua opinião relevante em relação ao talento do nosso esporte, deve repensar seriamente.
AJ has always had effective tactics to get attention for his matches, so could this be a new attempt at creating buzz for something to come? It’s interesting that he focused on Joe Rogan in his Instagram post and completely left Eddie Bravo’s name out this time.
