Joe Rogan did an interview with aspiring author (yep, that’s real life) James “The Colossus” Thompson on his podcast yesterday, going over Thompson’s career from that ripper with Aleks E. to the KSW judging fiasco in 2011.
Most interestingly though, tune in at the 1:31:00 mark to see James Thompson and Rogan talking about the how corrupt EliteXC was. They go through that hilarious fight with Kimbo Slice where Thompson’s ear exploded and Dan Miragliotta made his name by standing Thompson up from full side control and then stopping the fight really early the next round.
James also tells a great story about Jared “$kala” Shaw trying to personally take him to the hospital after the fight and then walking in on Gary Shaw bragging at the press conference about Kimbo sending Thompson to the hospital.
If you’re into the Rogan podcast, Dana White is going to be live on Thursday talking up Ronda Rousey or whatever. Check it out.
