Dana White Says Joe Rogan Not At Fault For Asking Ronda Rousey About 176

Dana White says Joe Rogan is not to blame for asking Ronda Rousey if she’d compete at next month’s UFC 176 event during Rogan’s post-fight interview with Ronda Rousey on Saturday night at 175.

While Rogan appeared to chew Rogan out after the surprising question, Dana White confirms Rogan’s defense that it was an error on the part of UFC’s production team. Rogan tweeted:

During the UFC 175 post-fight press conference, White said:

“I wasn’t upset with Joe Rogan. I was upset with the truck telling him to tell Ronda that she’s going to fight again. That wasn’t true. That was some shit that somebody made up back there. It was the biggest idiotic move in the history of our production team. I told them right up there that’s not true. I don’t know where that came from. Nobody told anybody to say that.”
