Joe Rogan expressed his frustration at not being able to sit repeatedly with fellow commentators Daniel Cormier and Jon Anik during the broadcast of UFC 249.
The longtime commentator for the Ultimate Fighting Championship in Rogan said that it made no sense that the commentator team should work separately after having endured and passed several tests for Covid-19.
«At least they let me do the post-fight interviews in the Octagon,» said Joe Rogan after the following comment from Daniel Cormier.
«You had a crisis,» replied Cormier. «You threw a fit before the show. It's crazy, everyone has been tested, we're all clean!»
«They were going to have them made for me about two meters away,» said Rogan. «We are all clean. Everyone has been tested, but they were going to interview me 50 feet away. I say to myself,» I can't, I want to see them, look them in the eye. «»
Dana White responded to frustrations expressed by Joe Rogan at the UFC 249 post-fight press conference.
«Yeah you know. Obviously there is all this social distancing and keeping people away from each other and everything. Everyone here has been tested. The people who are still here, we know know, are negative. «White said after being asked about Rogan's remarks during the broadcast. «Umm, I don't know. You know, we're just trying to ... Like I said to John (Morgan) earlier, we're still trying to understand this thing. You know, it was the first. It was a success . Wednesday will be better. Saturday will be better than that. Etc., etc. «
Joe Rogan also allegedly ignored the request for promotions to keep a distance during an interview with fighters at UFC 249. That said, the longtime UFC commentator makes a valid point regarding the need to implement a social distancing after the completion of these rigorous tests.
