#ThrowbackThursday VIDEO: Joe Rogan vs. Myspace Challenger

Joe Rogan vs MySpace

Long before the days of Twitter and Facebook there was MySpace, a social networking website offering an interactive, user-submitted network of friends, personal profiles, blogs, groups, photos, music, and videos.

From 2005 until 2008, MySpace was the largest social networking site in the world, and in June 2006 surpassed Google as the most visited website in the United States.

In June 2011, Specific Media Group and Justin Timberlake jointly purchased the company for approximately $35 million.

Just like today’s social networking platforms you can contact nearly anyone with an account, and that is what happened to UFC commentator Joe Rogan.  Rogan came in contact with a nameless “hater” who questioned his grappling ability.  From their exchange of words came a contest in which the two men rolled in a video that was uploaded to YouTube in 2006.
