VIDEO | Joe Rogan explains his primary goal when interviewing UFC fighters

Joe Rogan has interviewed hundreds and hundreds of fighters over the years, but he’s never felt threatened by any of them.

Speaking on a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, the UFC commentator was asked by Brazilian actor Rafinha Bastos if he has ever felt unsafe while interviewing a fighter. Rogan responded with a firm ‘no’ and outlined his primary goal in every fighter interview he conducts.

Hear what he had to say about his interview process in the video below:

“One thing that I hope the fighters realize is that what I’m trying to do is only get them to express themselves,” Rogan explained on his podcast. “I want them to shine. I really genuinely want them — they won this big fight! I want them to express themselves. I want them to maybe maximize their marketing, their marketing ability, and just tell the world how they feel.

“That’s an incredibly unusual experience to win a big fight in the cage on pay-per-view in front of millions of people… My goal is only to try to get them communicate better and to let them know that I’m there to support them.”

Joe Rogan has been working for the UFC since 1997. Initially, he served as a backstage interviewer for the promotion, but eventually moved into a color commentary role. He has worked for the promotion ever since, and no big card feels complete without his voice.
