Daniel Cormier got messed up pretty badly by the kick Jon Jones fed him – so much so that Cormier was stumbling around the Octagon during the announcement by Bruce Buffer of the official result. And those tears that flowed unbidden when Joe Rogan stuck a microphone in his face? Yeesh. That was cringeworthy.
Rogan agrees, and took to social media to apologize for conducting that interview with the fallen ex-champ.
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.
