Joe Rogan Surprises MMA Fighter By Covering Her Life-Changing Surgery

joe rogan mma fighter

Professional fighting isn’t always about fighting. Even though the word “fighting” is right there in the name of the sport, sometimes it’s all about the exact opposite of that. One recent surprise for a professional mixed martial arts fighter shows that there’s a whole of support within the community as well.

MMA fighter Miriam Nakamoto received a life-changing surprise when Joe Rogan said he’d pay for a medical treatment that she could not afford.

Rogan is known for being a comedian and podcaster, as well as being an MMA commentator. He reached out to Nakamototo to help with a knee surgery that she needs in order to continue her career as an MMA fighter. He’ll also be covering her travel costs to Panama, where the surgery will take place. Nakamototo posted a text message exchange with Rogan on Instagram that shows how Rogan shared the news with her.

“Your treatment with Dr. Riordan is going to be 100% on the house and I’m covering all your expenses to get down there,” Rogan wrote.

Nakamoto wrote in the caption of her post:

So …this happened today. Iím struggling to find the words. Iíve been trying to make a comeback for almost 6 years now. Iíve come close a few times. But I kept having difficulty with my knee. Thereís not much to be down with a grade 3 lesion on a meniscus besides stem cell therapy. I didnít have $30,000 so I did the best that I could, but I still always came up short. And then this happens today. Iím still in shock. Thank you†@joerogan. See you soon Dr. Riordan! ??????????????????#besthumanever#dreamsdocometrue#speechless#secondchance#blessed#grateful#letsgochamp

Fans of both Nakamoto and Rogan are sharing their well wishes in the comments of Nakamoto’s post.

Rogan is helping Nakamoto now, but that probably doesn’t mean he’ll go any easier on her during his commentary once she’s back in the ring.
