The sight of Joe Rogan interviewing a recently brutalized Daniel Cormier after his UFC 214 KO loss to Jon Jones was tough for a lot of fans to stomach. Vicious strikes to Cormier’s head laid the (now former) champion out and Rogan asking an injured man questions was something seen as anywhere between misguided and completely tasteless. Rogan has heard the backlash against the interview and he completely agrees with the criticism sent his way.
Addressing the pushback against interviewing post-KO D.C., Rogan expressed his thoughts across a collection of social media platforms. Rogan, who did acknowledge on the broadcast his previously stated dislike for interviewing knocked out fighters, says the chat with completely uncalled for. Rogan apologized to Cormier and said the controversial interview was entirely his fault.
