After coming under criticism for interviewing Cormier after he lost to Jon Jones, Rogan apologises. Normally, the losing fighter is not interviewed because they may be concussed, or not in a fit state to take questions.
Joe Rogan: "I don't think it's a good idea to interview fighters after they've been knocked-out, but –"

My apologies to DC and to everyone else upset at me for interviewing him after the fight. In all honesty, I was kind of in shock and I don’t think I realised 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’d and then I did it to someone that I care a great deal about. It was 100% my f**k up and no one pressured me to do it. I was beating myself up about it all night, and whenever something like that happens it’s always my sincere intention to apologise and express my honest feelings. It’ll never happen again.
