The long-tenured UFC commentator Joe Rogan is a controversial figure. He joins up with Daniel Cormier on the commentary desk and it seems Tony Ferguson is not a fan of their commentary. ‘El Cucuy’ recently joined in for an interview with Submission Radio where he touched upon various topics and slammed the commentary of Rogan.
Tony Ferguson reveals why he is not a fan of Joe Rogan’s commentary
Ferguson recently competed at UFC 274 against Michael Chandler. Despite looking good in the first round, ‘El Cucuy’ endured an upsetting defeat as he was brutally knocked out by a front kick from Chandler in the second round.
During the podcast, at one point, Ferguson talked about the UFC commentary team and said that although he respected Rogan and ‘DC’, he was unimpressed with their commentary work. The 38-year-old added that he had declined to appear on Rogan’s podcast ‘The Joe Rogan Experience’:
“I always give props to Jon Anik because he would always kind of speak up for me but they [Cormier and Rogan] don’t mind bagging on me… I’m the only person that told Joe ‘no’ for his podcast… I have my reasons for it but I got a lotta respect for Joe and what he has done for the sport and for himself. But you know, I’m not best friends with him. I don’t gotta be best friends with him. Same thing with Cormier.”
In another recent interview with MMA Junkie, Ferguson expressed his desire to face Dustin Poirier. He noted ‘The Diamond’ to be his opponent as the two would likely engage in a stand-up battle. ‘El Cucuy’ also expressed interest in competing in a boxing match against either of the Diaz brothers:
“I would love to be able to fight Dustin Poirier. Obviously, he likes to go stand up… stand up battle wouldn’t be bad. Obviously, I want to box. Even a celebrity boxing match against Nick Diaz and Nate Diaz wouldn’t be bad.”
We will have to see if the matches take place.
