Zuckerberg Was Recently on Rogan’s Podcast, Shared Love for MMA

Zuckerberg appeared on episode No. 1863 of “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast. And during their nearly three-hour conversation, Zuckerberg revealed to Rogan his love for mixed martial arts.

“I really like watching UFC for example, but I also like doing the sport,” Rogan said (h/t Jits Magazine). “It’s because I have a connection to it. Since COVID, I got super into surfing and foiling, and then really into MMA. I know a lot of people who do it.

“There’s actually this really interesting connection between people who surf and do jiu-jitsu, and I basically collected a bunch of recommendations, ran them by a bunch of people who I know, and I trained with this guy Dave Camarillo – Guerilla Jiu Jitsu – the crazy thing is, it really is the best sport.”

Zuckerberg Describe MMA as ‘Like the Perfect Thing’

Zuckerberg continued with his take on MMA and how training has been “important” to him.

“MMA is like the perfect thing,” he continued. “Because it’s like, if you stop paying attention for one second, you’re gonna end up on the bottom. Yeah, right.

“So I’ve just found that that is just really important for me, in terms of like, what I do and being able to just kind of maintain my energy level, maintain my focus, because then like, after, you know, an hour or two of, of working out or rolling or wrestling with friends or training with different folks, it’s like, now I’m ready to go solve whatever problem at work for the day and like I’ve fully processed all the different news for the day. That’s, that’s come in, and and we’re just ready to go.”
