UFC megastar Conor McGregor’s recent TKO loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been circulating around more than the worlds of boxing and mixed martial arts. Mainstream media has been reporting on the event as well. Among them, The New York Times appears to have made a noticeable mistake in their recent reporting. Longtime UFC commentating veteran Joe Rogan was seemingly not happy about the situation.
Taking to social media, Joe Rogan expressed his distaste for the acclaimed news outlet describing Conor McGregor has “completely bloodied” by Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the 10th round. Mostly overcome with fatigue, few fans seemed to agree that the UFC champion was “bloodied” by his opponent.
Since Joe Rogan’s outcry, it would appear that The New York Times’ reporting has been removed from social media.
Joe Rogan’s initial message may be seen below, with the acclaimed news organization’s story having since been pulled.
I agree with the stoppage of the fight but this description is not true and very disappointing in a newspaper I read regularly. https://t.co/Z7XczUpaQQ
