UFC commentator Joe Rogan explained the confrontation that took place between him and Dana White at UFC 175 after someone from the production team told Rogan to ask Ronda Rousey if she would fight again in a month on the UFC 176 card. Immediately it was obvious that Dana White was not happy with what had just taken place. However after the event Dana said that he was pissed at the production team, and not at Rogan.
Today Joe Rogan posted on the Underground that Dana was not mad at him saying:
Just for the record Dana wasn’t pissed at me at all. I thought it was actually Dana’s idea when the producers interrupted me to get me to ask that question when I was trying to wrap up the interview.
It’s incredibly rare that the guys in the truck ever ask me to ask a specific question.
He was upset that someone overstepped their bounds and decided it would be a good idea to ask Ronda to fight again in a month.
Decisions like that always come from Dana and Lorenzo, so when a producer thought it would be a good idea to ask Ronda that before consulting them he was really pissed off
I actually didn’t get blamed for anything. When I asked the question I specifically stated that the producers in the truck wanted me to ask. When Dana was pissed he asked me who said that and that’s when I realized it wasn’t his idea
