Stephie Haynes: In one of your current podcasts, you made a joke about Cris Cyborg that ended up causing quite a wave of discontent and concern from both her and many fans of the sport. For those that don’t know, can you explain how that conversation happened and if you have any regrets about the things you said?

Joe Rogan: Well, if I had to do it again, I definitely wouldn’t have made the joke. It was in the context of Dana asking about roasting fighters, like he wanted to do a thing for Fight Pass. It’s one of the reasons why I said he should do it with Tony Hinchcliffe, because Tony is hilarious and he’s one of the best roast writers and roast performers in the country. We had a couple drinks and we were joking around about it, and I said, ‘You should roast Cyborg.’ Dana said, ‘I wouldn’t know where you would start,’ or something like that, ‘Where would you start?’, and I said, ‘Her dick.’

“I shouldn’t have said it, but it’s what you say if you’re hanging around with comedians, you know? It’s what we do. Plus, I had a couple of drinks. It was just a dumb thing to do, and I certainly didn’t mean it with any malice. I honestly didn’t. Then Tony elaborated on it and went even deeper with it. That’s what you do in a roast. She didn’t ask to be roasted, and it’s not her fault, but it was in the context of what we were doing. Still, I shouldn’t have done it, I shouldn’t have said it. I do feel bad about it, because I didn’t want to hurt her feelings.

Honestly, steroid allegations aside and all that other nonsense, I’m a fan of her as a fighter. I think she fights very well. She’s very tough and she’s fun to watch. I’ve said that before, and I’ve said it recently in a podcast with John Wayne Parr. We were talking about her fight with Jorina Baars, and I said it was a ballsy move for her to take that fight. Even though she lost that fight, she fought hard. She kept coming after Baars and she did very well.

Anyway, I didn’t mean to start any static with her or anything like that, so I hope she accepts my apology. It’s my fault and I take full responsibility.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
