After Daniel Cormier lost by TKO to Stipe Miocic at UFC 241, he was interviewed by UFC commentator, Joe Rogan after the fight.
Of course, Rogan has said interviewing fighters after they have been knocked out is not a good idea. Yet, he decided he needed to interview ‘DC’ and explained why in a post on Facebook.
“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,” Joe Rogan wrote. “And although Stipe dropped him with headshots 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.
“I think interviewing fighters after a brutal loss is kinda sketchy. But I was also thinking that it’s possible that this may be the last time we see DC in the octagon. I love DC, and I would never want to put him in a bad position, but I made a judgment call and felt this would be alright. Whatever he decides to do from here on out the man is a future Hall of Famer and one of the best to ever do it. It will be very interesting to see what he decides to do from here out.”
It very well could have been the last time we saw Daniel Cormier compete inside the Octagon so it did make sense for Joe Rogan to interview him.
