Sober October did wonders for Joe. He seems more level, reasonable and clearer than ever.
One of the more surprising acknowledgements came on episode #1045 with JRE regular, comedian, actor and podcaster Brian Callen.
Instead of making fun of Eddie Bravo’s conspiracy theories, Joe Rogan made sense of it and explains why Eddie Bravo entertains conspiracy theories.
Eddie Bravo came from a traditional Jiu-Jitsu background. He was an early innovator in the no gi movement of Jiu-Jitsu. This was shunned by the traditional community and he was quickly seen as an outsider.
Only until Eddie Bravo beat Royler Gracie did he receive the respect he deserved. Eddie Bravo overcame all odds. He proved everybody wrong. He broke the biggest conspiracy theory in his sport. He learned from then, he couldn’t take the popular idea as gospel. Watch him defeat Royler Gracie below.
*There’s a Joe Rogan cameo at around the 13:00 mark.
