Joe Rogan Reacts to Meryl Streep Comments on MMA


The great actress Meryl Streep won the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes 2017 on Sunday. She took a pointed swipe at the president-elect and a puzzling one at mixed martial arts.

“All of us in this room, really, belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now,” she said. “Think about it: Hollywood, foreigners, and the press. Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners, and if we kick ’em all out, you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which ARE NOT THE ARTS.”

It was weird, as mixed martial arts is a highly international sport – both UFC women’s champions train in the USA, but are foreign nationals. Three male champions are foreign nationals, and one, Michael Bisping, lives in the USA. And while mixed martial arts may not be an art to her, that is through ignorance. As the name indicates, done properly, it is very much an art.

UFC color commentator and professional comic reacted recently to Streep’s blurt.

“To say that some people aren’t artists – martial artists aren’t artists … well, that’s completely open to interpretation,” said Rogan, accurately. “What do you think is beautiful? You think that f***ing stupid fucking movie where you played that rock star … what was that one, that nobody went to see? Listen, that wasn’t art. An Anderson Silva front kick to the face is 1,000 times than that piece of s*** movie you put out lady.”

“I’m sure she’s a very nice person. I’m sure she thinks she’s standing up for what’s right. Get Ready for Ricki, Ricki Flash, get the f*** out of here.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
