- Joe Rogan thinks Jamahal Hill and Robbie Lawler could’ve beaten up some street protesters in New York if they came out the bus and retaliated
- “Sweet Dreams” is linked to a light heavyweight title fight with Alex Pereira
Joe Rogan is positive that all hell would’ve broken loose had Jamahal Hill and Robbie Lawler decided to charge back at the Palestinian protesters that attacked their bus in New York a few weeks ago.
"Our bus is being attacked. We're penned in."

It would’ve been bad for the protesters
Speaking on his The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, the UFC color commentator recalled the incident that took place in New York amid UFC 295. Rogan reckoned that it was a good thing that Hill and Lawler didn’t come out of the UFC bass as they would’ve surely hurt a couple of protesters.
“When I was in New York City two weeks ago for the UFC, there was a Free Palestine march. It was wild, the streets were filled with people. It looked very organized. They attacked a UFC bus, they slashed the tires of the bus whilst Robbie Lawler and Jamahal Hill were on that bus,” Rogan remembered.
“They smashed windows and slashed tyres. They are so lucky that Hill and Robbie Lawler didn’t get off that bus and start putting people into orbit,” he continued.
“They don’t have a chance. Jamahal, Jamahal could crack. That is a big fella too. He is a big fella and he could crack. People are running from him. He cracks one or two people, and everyone’s gonna run. 100%,” he speculated. “And someone’s gonna recognize Robbie Lawler. And they’re gonna realize, ‘Oh my God, these are UFC fighters. And there are two of them. Who else in the bus? Let’s get the f**k out of here.'”
Jamahal could be next for Alex
Fortunately, Hill and Lawler managed to remain safe inside the bus until the chaos is over. Lawler is already retired but “Sweet Dream” is still in his peak. In fact, Hill is likely to become light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira’s first challenger.
Hill was forced to vacate the light heavyweight title due to an injury and is now hoping to get it back in his return sooner rather than later.
