Joe Rogan Opens Up On The Cris Cyborg Penis Situation “I Shouldn’t Have Said It”

It looks like UFC Commentator Joe Rogan is taking full responsibility for the jokes he and fellow comedian Tony Hinchcliffe said about Invicta FC Champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino. On a Joe Rogan Roast thread on the Underground forums, MMA fans were trashing Joe for his comments and Joe Rogan logged on and left these 2 post:


Rogan also did an interview with BloodyElbow and issued Cyborg a full apology:

Joe Rogan: Well, if I had to do it again, I definitely wouldn’t have made the joke. It was in the context of Dana [White] asking about roasting fighters, like he wanted to do a thing for Fight Pass. It’s one of the reasons why I said he should do it with Tony Hinchcliffe, because Tony is hilarious and he’s one of the best roast writers and roast performers in the country. We had a couple drinks and we were joking around about it, and I said, ‘You should roast Cyborg.’ Dana said, ‘I wouldn’t know where you would start,’ or something like that, ‘Where would you start?’, and I said, ‘Her dick.’

I shouldn’t have said it, but it’s what you say if you’re hanging around with comedians, you know? It’s what we do. Plus, I had a couple of drinks. It was just a dumb thing to do, and I certainly didn’t mean it with any malice. I honestly didn’t. Then Tony elaborated on it and went even deeper with it. That’s what you do in a roast. She didn’t ask to be roasted, and it’s not her fault, but it was in the context of what we were doing. Still, I shouldn’t have done it, I shouldn’t have said it. I do feel bad about it, because I didn’t want to hurt her feelings.

Honestly, steroid allegations aside and all that other nonsense, I’m a fan of her as a fighter. I think she fights very well. She’s very tough and she’s fun to watch. I’ve said that before, and I’ve said it recently in a podcast with John Wayne Parr. We were talking about her fight with Jorina Baars, and I said it was a ballsy move for her to take that fight. Even though she lost that fight, she fought hard. She kept coming after Baars and she did very well.

Anyway, I didn’t mean to start any static with her or anything like that, so I hope she accepts my apology. It’s my fault and I take full responsibility.
