Joe Rogan has commented on Deontay Wilder's claim that he lost his second encounter with Tyson Fury due to his walkout costume.

Discussing 'The Bronze Bomber' on an episode of the Joe Rogan Experience, the UFC color commentator said:

"The idea that Deontay Wilder, with a 40-pound outfit on, that it killed his legs walking to the ring, that's crazy talk. I don't understand why he would say that. I mean, maybe it's true... It's possible. It might have wore him out."

Rogan added that, in his opinion, it was the third round of the fight that shifted things in 'The Gypsy King's favor.

"The real big thing happened in the third round when Tyson Fury... he put that jab in his face and hit him with a beautiful overhand right right on the ear and dropped him... he was bleeding out of his ear, so that's a significant injury. It could be a ruptured eardrum. When you get hit on the ear like that like a lot of times, your eardrum ruptures, happens all the time and when that happens you don't know how to stand up right. Your body is all wacky, it's not moving correctly and that's what it looked like with him."

It was later reported that Wilder did not have a burst eardrum. 'The Bronze Bomber' suffered a minor laceration to his ear.
