Joe Rogan Gets Real With UFC Fighter On Podcast, Pettis Disputes Medical Suspension, Ronda Rousey

- UFC announcer Joe Rogan made headlines this week when he played host to friend and UFC fighter Brendan Schaub on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. Schaub lost a high profile bout with #3-ranked Travis Browne in the first round Saturday at UFC 181.

Rogan heavily criticized Schaub and his abilities, saying that he isn't the elite fighter that he perceives himself to be. Schaub said it "was easy for Rogan to say that with $12 million in the bank."

Rogan also said that he cared about Schaub and didn't want him to end up with brain damage. Rogan went on for about fifteen minutes and was brutally honest to the fighter.

- Ronda Rousey will be co-writing a book with her sister, writer Maria Burns Ortiz. The book doesn't have a set release date, but will be titled "My Fight/Your Fight."

"Everyone has their own fight," Rousey stated in a press release. "Through my journey to become the greatest fighter in the cage, I learned the concepts to conquer every battle outside of it. Hopefully readers can learn the same lessons I did -- without having to take as many punches in the face."

- UFC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis retained his title at UFC 181, but may not be out of the woods yet. After having a 15-month layoff, he's facing a six month medical suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission to an injured hand. Pettis has refuted the claims, saying that he's injury-free.
