A few years ago Conor McGregor was disappointed with Joe Rogan because of the way he narrates the fights. Conor McGregor was unhappy with how Rogan narrated his rematch with Nate Diaz and the fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Conor McGregor even called out Joe Rogan and suggested he be more authentic in commentating. McGregor stated: “I’d like him to call a fight how he sees it correctly and not off the script”
Though Conor McGregor said that he wanted to be on the Joe Rogan podcast he was just unhappy with Rogan’s job as a commentator. Rogan would respond to McGregor’s call out and said:
“I understand what he is saying, sometimes people think that. But it is very difficult when someone is calling your fight. If he is talking about me calling someone’s fight that is not his friend, then it makes much more sense. It’s f*****g hard, man, it’s hard for me. I have a really hard time calling friends fights.”
Conor McGregor and Joe Rogan have buried the hatchet
Well, it seems everything is fine between Conor McGregor and Joe Rogan now as he is willing to come on the Joe Rogan Podcast in the near future. During a Twitter QnA, McGregor said he would love to be on the JRE at some stage.
“I’d love to! I feel at some stage we should! I’ve a lot of respect for Joe. he shouted me out before anyone else in the UFC also. Before I had signed with the company.”
Joe Rogan as well is very eager to have Conor McGregor on his podcast. Rogan said he already has some things to talk about with Conor on the podcast. Rogan said: “I would like to talk to him about his future. I have some thoughts. We were supposed to do it a long time ago. I hope he does not think in any way I don’t respect him. cause fighters are super super sensitive.”
For now, Conor McGregor will need to give his attention to the upcoming Dustin Poirier trilogy. This is a Do or Die situation for McGregor as a loss at UFC 264 will have a huge impact on his stardom. But, McGregor has shined in the high-pressure situation before. And his fans will be hoping for a similar performance from McGregor at UFC 264.
