Joe Rogan, who admitted fault shortly after UFC 214 for interviewing Daniel Cormier after his knockout loss to Jon Jones, posted a longer apology Sunday on social media.

Rogan, after interviewing Jon Jones, went to interview Cormier, who was very emotional after losing a second time to the fighter who will almost sure go down as his biggest career rival.

During the post-fight press conference, Dana White was asked about the interview, where Cormier really couldn't gather his thoughts like usual, and White said Rogan did it. Rogan started the interview saying that he usually doesn't interview fighters after being knocked out.

Rogan often interviews the winners and losers in the ring after major fights, or occasionally outstanding undercard fights, but of late, the policy is not to do so if the loser was knocked out.
