UFC women’s flyweight Sijara Eubanks is not happy with cage side UFC commentator Joe Rogan. Following the fighter’s recent statement concerning the matter, here is a look at the original message that irritated the women’s flyweight.
UFC women’s flyweight Sijara Eubanks was initially set to fight Valentina Shevchenko for the vacant division title in the main event of UFC 230. However, the fight was eventually cancelled in order to make room for a Daniel Cormier vs. Derrick Lewis headliner.
Following a statement from UFC commentator Joe Rogan concerning the proposed Eubanks vs. Shevchenko match up, Eubanks went on to issue a lived message to the commentator. On his podcast Joe Rogan Experience, Joe Rogan claimed he had no idea whom Sijara Eubanks is.
“What?! No offense but I don’t even know who Sijara Eubanks is and I’m the commentator for the UFC.” Rogan said.
“That’s gonna headline Madison Square Garden?!” Former UFC fighter Brendan Schaub added. “I’ve lost all energy in my body. Oh yeah, that gets my d*ck harder than Dustin Poirier vs. Nate Diaz for the 165-pound title.
“I’ve never heard of her, and I’m not being a d*ck either.” Schaub said. “I’m just saying, as far as headlining Madison Square Garden, you’ve got some nerve putting this together.”
“Valentina against a girl who is 4-2 with one fight in the UFC, for the flyweight title,” Joe Rogan later concluded. “Nicco Montano, that stripped her because she didn’t make weight for one fight. What? Huh?”
Sijara Eubanks went on to issue a few words over social media, before issuing a heated message in a recent interview.
“@joerogan I’ll give you a little refresher next time you’re in jersey. We’ll train some BJJ and you’ll never forget me again Hahhaa Or you and the rest of the world can tune in Nov 3 and watch history. The Eubanks name will never be overlooked again”
“Me when @joerogan acting like he don’t me on his podcast”
