Sijara Eubanks: “Joe Rogan Didn’t Have To Say On His Blog He Doesn’t Know Who I Am, It Was Disrespectful”
A lot of controversies followed the early period of this month. UFC Flyweight title shot between Valentina Shevchenko and Sijara Eubanks was slated to headline UFC 230! Many MMA lovers weren’t happy due to this decision. Twitter reactions were mostly negative.
Joe Rogan said that he “doesn’t know who Sijara Eubanks is“! “Sarj” was angered by Rogan’s disrespectful move. She claims she even tweeted him but Joe ignored her. Eubanks also stated Rogan will have to interview her one day. She plans to confront the famous psychedelic commentary superstar in the future. (via bloodyelbow.com)
“I tweeted him but he didn’t tweet back. Joe knows who I am, he knows who I was before I said it,” Eubanks said Monday on The MMA Hour (transcript via MMA Mania). “He didn’t have to say that on his blog. I thought it was disrespectful.”
“Me and Joe, I am not happy with Joe Rogan,” she continued. “He can’t avoid interviewing me one day. One day he is going to find himself with me in the cage with the mic and I am going to let him know exactly how I feel.”
UFC switched the things up. The UFC Heavyweight title match between Derrick Lewis and Daniel Cormier will headline UFC 230. But Sijara Eubanks didn’t even compete under main card. She will collide Roxanne Modafferi at the preliminary card. There is a chance “Sarj” could fight for a title if she defeats Modafferi. Eubanks was set to fight for UFC Flyweight belt earlier but she was pulled out from the match against Nicco Montano. The reason was failed weight cut.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you believe Joe Rogan did this intentionally? After all, he could at least comment something or reply to her. It looks like he rather sticks to Dana White’s strategy against Nate Diaz.
