Cenk Uygur says that he’d “end” Joe Rogan in a fight after criticizing the podcast host for his vaccine skepticism.
Cenk Uygur, the co-founder of the Young Turks, threatened to fight Joe Rogan, Thursday night, after criticizing his repeated hesitancy to support the COVID-19 vaccine.
“To all the loser @joerogan fans crying over my attack on his ‘freedom’ hypocrisy & stupidity, are you guys part of the crew or do you kiss his ass for fun? I thought he was a big boy who could handle himself,” Uygur tweeted after going back-and-forth with Rogan’s fans.
“If he doesn’t like my free speech, he can grow a pair & defend himself,” he added.

One Rogan listener then said he’d pay $1,000 to see the two fight, to which Uygur replied: “easiest $1,000 I ever made.”
Uygur explained how he believes the fight would go: “You think he’s going to assault me? Sure, whatever. That’s incredibly dumb. But also wouldn’t work. I’m much larger than Joe and I’ve fought my whole life. I’d end him. But grownups don’t do that. I’ll send you the PO Box to send check to later.”
