Joe Rogan has revealed that Conor McGregor insisted on talking to him after he broke his leg in his recent fight with Dustin Poirier.
McGregor unleashed a tirade of insults at both Poirier and his wife Jolie in a post-fight interview with Rogan while sitting on the ground after badly breaking his left leg in a freak accident.
“This is not over!”

John Kavanagh criticises Joe Rogan.
“You can only imagine the rush of hormones and what’s going to be going through your body at that moment. The pain – it was on fire,” Kavanagh said.
“Then someone sits down and sticks a microphone in your face and asks, ‘How are you feeling right now?’ It’s like, guys, come on!
“When has he never not been gracious at the end? Let’s get backstage, let’s get a proper assessment by a doctor and let’s get an X-ray.
“Let’s say I was pretty miffed at that idea of shoving a microphone in someone’s face at that stage. Let’s gather ourselves!”
‘Come on Joe, let’s have a f*cking podcast.’
However, Rogan explained on a recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience that McGrgeor actually called him over while he was on the ground being treated for his broken leg.
“People are like, ‘Why did you interview him?’ He actually brought me over,” Rogan explained.
“He goes ‘Come over here lad, let’s have a podcast.’ He said, ‘Come on Joe let’s have a f*cking podcast.’ He like asked me to sit down next to him. I was like, ‘How am I going to do this. I feel like I should just get something out of him.’
“Even if you recognise the fact that he is emotionally charged up, this is just him expressing himself while he was emotionally charged up.”
Although McGregor is likely to be out for quite a long time as he recovers from his injury, he is eager to fight Poirier for a fourth time, with UFC President Dana White also calling for another bout between the two.
