After UFC 246, many MMA fans and analysts took issue with Stephen A. Smith’s assessment of Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and his loss to Conor “Notorious” McGregor.

Recently, UFC commentator Joe Rogan had the retired MMA fighter, Josh Thomson, on his podcast. And the two got into a conversation about Smith’s work as an analyst during UFC 246.

Both men were unimpressed with Smith as a knowledgeable MMA analyst, and specifically about his comments on Cerrone being a “quitter” and that there was nothing to learn about McGregor from the match. Rogan said that Smith “shouldn’t be allowed to talk about fighting.”

Stephen A. Smith released a video via Twitter of his response to Joe Rogan’s critique. Specifically, he had a problem with something Rogan said during the podcast. When speaking about Smith’s MMA and UFC knowledge, Rogan told Thomson, “That’s a bad look for everybody. It’s a bad look for ESPN. It’s a bad look for him; it’s a bad look for the sport. There’s other people that can do that.”
