Joe Rogan apologises for DC interview

UFC commentator apologises for the post fight interview.

Following Daniel Cormier’s knockout loss to Jon Jones at this past weekends UFC 214, UFC commentator Joe Rogan went against one of his golden rules and decided to interview Cormier.

Joe Rogan has made it clear, he simply does not like interviewing people after they have been knocked out, he feels that doing so is unfair as the person who has just been knocked out may have no clue where they are at – They say things they don’t necessarily mean because they are confused.

However, Rogan went against his unwritten rule this weekend and decided to interview a visibly dazed and upset Cormier, who struggled to get his words out following his devastating loss to rival Jon Jones.

Rogan has since issued an apology to the former champion stating the following – “My apologies to DC, and to everyone else upset with for the interview. In all honesty, I was kind of in shock and I don’t think I realized what I was doing until I had a mic in my hand.” Rogan further states that he doesn’t like doing interviews with people after they have been knocked out and he decided to do it to some whom he “cares a great deal about.”

“It was 100% my f**k up, and no one pressured me into doing it,” said Rogan. He goes on to say that he would like to apologize to DC and express his “honest feelings” and states that “it’ll never happen again”

My apologies to D.C. And to everyone else upset at me for interviewing him after the fight. In all honestly I was kind of in shock and I don't think I realized what I was doing until I had a mic in my hand and I was talking to him. I've said that I don't want to interview fighters after they've been KO'ed and then I did it to someone that I care a great deal about. It was 100% my fuck up and no one pressured me to do it. I posted a series of tweets about it on twitter but I know some of you folks only use instagram or Facebook so I thought the right thing to do is post it here as well. I was beating myself up about it all night, and whenever something like that happens it's always my sincere intention to apologize and express my honest feelings. It'll never happen again.
