Undefeated Bryce Mitchell will return to the Octagon at UFC 282 on December 10th. Meeting him will be another undefeated 145-pounder in Ilia Topuria.
With roughly a week to go before he puts his ‘O’ on the line at the promotion’s final pay-per-view event of 2022, ‘Thug Nasty’ appeared on the ‘Champ and The Tramp‘ podcast to discuss multiple topics. One of which was his callout of Joe Rogan, asking the popular podcaster and UFC commentator to debate Mitchell’s claim that the Earth in fact flat.
Asked if Rogan had reached out to him to appear on his ‘The Joe Rogan Experience’ podcast, Bryce Mitchell confirmed he had not. However, that one simple question was enough of an opening for Mitchell to start explaining his dense theories about the planet Earth, space exploration, and the one word every creationist hates to hear: evolution.
“No man, I think he’s a little bit scared brother. That’s the thing, people think I have the burden proof. Go outside and look, do you see the Earth spinning a thousand miles an hour? Do you see the big bang? Do you see… No. The people saying that there’s a big bang, that the Earth is rotating a thousand miles an hour. Orbiting the sun at 666,000 miles an hour, those are the people that… The sun is 93 million miles away. Those are the people that have the burden of proof.
“Here’s the thing, it’s like, I have what I believe constitutes as proof that the sun is small. It’s closer to what they’re saying it is. It’s the exact same size as the moon because they’re a counterpart. The sun and the moon, they are the exact same size in the sky. Now, do you think that’s a coincidence one is 93 million miles away and one whatever? A little… A lot closer and they’re the exact same size or is it more coincidence that they’re actually counterparts in nature? They circle the Earth at a very close proximity
“When you look into it, I’m not as crazy as they want to make me think. And everybody says, ‘Well what’s the… Why are they lying about that?’ Well brother, it’s such a big issue. It comes down to good versus evil. I mean, that’s what it comes down to. They want your soul. It comes down to if they can make you think big bang created the universe… There’s a million other Earths. This Earth is useless because there are a million other Earths. There’s a million other planets. A million other stars.”
Bryce Mitchell Claims There is No Evidence of Other Planets Existing
From there, Mitchell continued his rant, suggesting that NASA and space exploration, in general, are government programs solely designed to scam Americans out of tax dollars. Mitchell also believes that the moon landing was manufactured and that no “rovers” have ever been placed on the planet Mars.
If you managed to make it this far into the interview without ripping your own hair out, you’ll get to hear Mitchell explain, without any type of evidence, that every image of Earth taken from space or that of other planets is nothing more than camera trickery by way of CGI. Unfortunately, Mitchell was unable to share a shred of evidence for any his claims. Instead, he opted to continue spouting more fantastical conspiracy theories that he drummed up while bumming around town in backwoods Arkansas.
Before finishing up, Mitchell managed to loop all of his theories into one simple narrative. The government is waging a war on religion. His specific religion to be exact.
“It all comes down to, they don’t want you to believe in God. They don’t want you to believe you have a purpose. They don’t want you to believe you have a soul. You do have a soul. This universe was not created by big bang. We live on a flat stationary plane with a sun and a moon created for this one planet. There’s not proof of other planets out there. There’s not.”
