Hasan’s uncle Cenk Uygur wants to fight Joe Rogan for just $ 1,000 donation
Popular Twitch streamer Hasan’s uncle Cenk Uygur has thrown the gauntlet and wants to fight legendary podcast host Joe Rogan.
Joe Rogan has been criticized recently for his controversial stances on global health issues and the Young Turks host was just one of many to call on him.
Uygur’s criticism of Rogan put him in hot water with fans of the JRE podcast, but he didn’t back down, turning to Twitter to attack them.
“To all the losing Joe Rogan fans who mourn my attack on his hypocrisy and his ‘freedom’ stupidity, are you part of the team or do you kiss him for fun?” he asked rhetorically. “I thought he was a big boy who could fend for himself. If he doesn’t like my free speech, he can pair up and defend himself.
I will donate $ 1000 to your trash network or charity of choice to see you call Rogan who is not only the most successful podcast in history but also a mixed martial arts black belt, a loser face to face.

This prompted a fan to challenge Cenk to make his comments in Rogan’s face with the caveat that if he did, the fan would donate $ 1,000 to his network or charity of his choice. .
“Okay. Easiest $ 1,000 I’ve ever won,” Cenk retorted. “Do you think he’s going to assault me? Of course, whatever. It’s insanely stupid. But neither wouldn’t work. more. I’m much taller than Joe and I’ve fought my whole life. I would finish it. But adults don’t do that.
The challenge quickly went viral, with many fans explaining how they would go so far as to pay to see the fight between the two internet stars.
I would pay to see this fight. I don’t understand Joe Rogan’s idol worship. Are people so excited by Cenk’s comments that they now resort to violence? If an MMA fighter has to fight because someone said something that wasn’t nice I would be concerned about their lack of control

The battle lines had been drawn and a debate between Young Turks and Joe Rogan fans began, turning into the equivalent of a “my dad can beat your dad” show.
While Uygur looks confident, the overwhelming majority of comments cited Rogan’s martial arts skills as reason enough for him to lose in a one-on-one fight.
Dude, you’ve CLEARLY never seen Rogan train. He would kick you out before you even knew you were fighting. pic.twitter.com/EBPE1ak2gZ

“Joe Rogan would tear you down. It would go through you like a bulldozer through paper. Your height literally means nothing when there is such a huge disparity in skill and strength, ”one fan remarked.
I’m not going to guess who would win – but I would donate $ 100 to attend an organized debate / fight. You are debating a point first. Then a turn in the ring. Then another point of debate. Then another round in the ring. ((I seriously think this concept would be an extremely entertaining show.))

Others came up with interesting formats to keep the theme in line with the podcasts: “I would give $ 100 to see a debate / organized fight. You are debating a point first. Then a turn in the ring. Then another point of debate. Then another round in the ring, ”suggested another.
His fellow podcaster Tim Pool even went so far as to suggest that in addition to fighting Cenk against Rogan, his nephew Hasan confronts Logan Paul.
Ok let’s do this

So far, Rogan hasn’t responded to the challenge, but it would be a sight not to be missed if he was okay and the two end up going head-to-head.
