Joe Rogan has been at the center of controversy the past few weeks. After Neil Young and others asked to have their music removed from Spotify because of Rogan's podcast, a video of Rogan saying the n-word resurfaced.
Rogan addressed the video and several episodes of his podcast were removed by Spotify, but the platform has stood behind him and refuses to cancel him. They're not the only ones standing behind Rogan.
UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya is also standing behind him. Adesanya stepped in and answered a question during the UFC 271 press conference directed at UFC president Dana White about the Rogan controversy.
Adesanya has Rogan's back. He had this to say of Rogan, who will be broadcasting UFC 271.
"First off, let me take this one, hold up I'm black, I can take this one. There’s a lot of cunts in this game, there's a lot of snakes in this game. I've been in this fight game since 2008 and Joe Rogan is one of the nicest, coolest, humble motherfuckers I've had the pleasure of working with. Understand that. Fuck the noise."

You know the old saying, actions speak louder than words. I think that applies here. Rogan said some stuff he regrets, but his actions have been true to who he is.
