Popular comedian and UFC’s fan favourite colour commentator and podcast host Joe Rogan has time and time again made it explicitly clear that he does not think that interviewing fighters after they have been knocked out is a good idea. Yet just this past weekend over at UFC 241, Joe Rogan was seen interviewing the former UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier after his brutal fourth round knockout loss to Stipe Miocic. Rogan has now finally given an explanation as to why he interviewed DC even after him being KOed.
Rogan took to social media and explained his reasons via a Facebook post. Here’s what he had to say:
Congrats to the GOAT heavyweight Stipe Miocic for regaining his crown and cementing his legacy as a legend! Some people were confused as to why I interviewed DC after the fight because I’ve publicly stated that I don’t think it’s a good idea to interview fighters after they’ve been KO’ed. I think most of what happened to DC was those brutal body shots, and although Stipe dropped him with head shots he was never out cold, and seemed clear headed after he stood up and the results were announced to the crowd and Stipe got the belt given to him. The UFC asked for an interview, and I asked DC if he was ok with it, and he said, Yes.
