Joe Rogan has a gentleman’s understanding of sorts where he doesn’t interview fighters after a loss, especially if they have been knocked out. But the UFC commentator might have broken his own rule during Saturday's UFC 241.

Rogan seems to have it for Daniel Cormier. He broke the golden rule when Jon Jones knocked down the former champion. At the time, Rogan apologized for his oversight in the incident, saying that it was “100% my f*ck up” and that he was shocked to have done it. However, on Sunday, the host did again -- interviewing Cormier after suffering another title loss. 

MMA Fighting reported that the UFC ringside mainstay did it again, this time as DC came up short, losing the heavyweight title to Stipe Miocic via knockout in UFC 241: Daniel Cormier vs. Stipe Miocic​​.

W​hile Cormier was in much better shape when Rogan interviewed him, he still received some flack for the interview. He addressed this issue in a Facebook post, where he said that the “circumstances felt different” at the time and that he cleared it up with the fighter before he did the interview.

"The UFC asked for an interview, and I asked DC if he was ok with it, and he said, Yes. I think interviewing fighters after a brutal loss is kinda sketchy, but I was also thinking that it’s possible that this may be the last time we see DC in the octagon," Rogan wrote.

"I love DC, and I would never want to put him in a bad position, but I made a judgment call and felt this would be alright."

He explained that as much as breaking his own rule is concerned, there had been talks about Cormier’s retirement around the corner. Rogan said that given the circumstances, he felt it might be important to talk with Cormier. Rogan was still all praises for the fighter, calling him a “future hall of famer ” and “one of the best to ever do it.”

It would’ve been better for Rogan to have interviewed Cormier on his “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, though. The podcast features him talking to different fighters, celebrities, and even comedians. Rogan makes a hefty amount even for just one episode.

According to Cheat Sheet, Rogan makes a hefty sum for each episode on the podcast. The rate was revealed by middleweight champion Michael Bisping on his own podcast, Believe You Me. During one episode, the former fighter revealed that Rogan makes $75,000 per episode.
