- Vanessa Demopoulos prefers Joe Rogan embrace over Michael Bisping after jumping in both of their arms
- Bisping reacted to her statement
Demopoulos appears to be a bigger fan of Joe Rogan than ‘The Count’ for her post-fight interviews.
This past Saturday, Vanessa Demopoulos took on Jinh Yu Frey at UFC on ESPN 38 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, NV. Going the full distance with Frey, Demopoulos would come out on top of the contest by a split decision.
Following the win, she surprised Michael Bisping as she jumped into his arms during her post-fight octagon interview.
Vanessa Demopoulos prefers Joe Rogan over Michael Bisping for embracing
‘Lil Monster’ was going into the bout off a first-round finish of Silvana Gomez Juarez earlier in January at UFC 270. For the event, Joe Rogan was on interview duties and Demopoulos would make headlines for jumping into his arms after the win.
During the post-fight press conference, Demopoulos would reveal Rogan to be better for embracing than Bisping, who didn’t hold her up while Rogan supported her during the interview.
“Joe’s was way better, even though both of them I forced it upon them. Neither of them had an option but yes.”
“That was part of the game plan. I kinda knew Bisping was not going to hold me up. It’s a part of his personality. I didn’t take it personal.”

‘The Count’ was quick to deliver a response to Demopoulos’ statements on Twitter within an hour of hearing about it.

“Never been so offended……“
It seems like Bisping might be hurt by her preference for Rogan although he’s known for a little banter every now and then.
Demopoulos mentioned that she anticipated the reaction she received from the Englishman given his personality as a fighter and now as a commentator. She acknowledged that she didn’t give either of them a choice in the matter.
‘Lil Monster’ improved her record to 8-4 in professional MMA and has two wins with a sole loss in the UFC.
