I'm gonna guess that you're disappointed in us cuz we're sympathizing with DC, after trash talking each other so much in LMS.

I hope that's not what it is though, cuz there's an easy counter argument against that.

Still I don't understand why... Junios dos Santos took two brutal beatings against Cain Velasquez in a row, and he was interviewed after those fights, and he talked as the champion he is and didn't start to cry as a baby. Lots of fighters have been interviewed after being KOed... and now it seems they have to take care about crying DC feelings... Losing is part of the game! What if they do the same in all sports? 

It depends on the situation. You have to look at that person and try to judge whether that person is in a good state to be interviewed and if it'll be appropriate. JDS seemed alright with it and wasn't as emotional so you go ahead and interview. DC didn't seem alright, wanted to leave, and was very emotional and devasted by the loss. Joe wanted to show him some sympathy.

I think the post-fight interview is part of the job. A really well payed job to him, by the way... All sportsmen are interviewed lose or win, and I really like to hear those interviews. He has to be professional, and he is not.

DC doesn't get paid for the interview. Sometimes it's appropriate not to interview the fighter at times and show some compassion. A part of being a human. People may just enjoy seeing the fighter in agony and force an interview out of them for their own selfish entertainment which is kind of wrong. You can always get a better feedback from the fighter later.

What was so bad about the interview anyway? is it because he cried? What he said was pretty hard hitting and sounded genuine to me.

Just saying when it looks like the fighter is in a bad emotional state and seems like he really doesn't want to do the interview at that time, shoving a mic in their face and forcing them to do it while completely ignoring their feelings and just thinking about your own entertainment so you can drill them with stupid questions like "how do you feel after the loss?" (which I always thought is a stupid question...I mean how do you think they'll feel :lol: ) could be wrong sometimes from a humanistic standpoint. Both Joe & DC are good guys though. DC was more emotional than he usually he is, but he ultimately did the interview unlike Ronda (but then again nobody blocked Ronda from going out). And Joe's a good guy because him & DC know each other a bit since they commentate together and Joe was considering his feelings.

IMO, every fighter gets paid for fighting, and for making the promo, and for the interviews and even for wearing those Reebok clothes on. I agree you can show some compassion if there's any special reason to show it, but if you start crying only because you have lost the fight, you should be professional and make those interviews. Most of fights have a loser, and I don't like that game of  "I'll be interviewed only if I win, because if I lose I'll start crying as a baby and then you'll have to leave me alone". This is a sport and you win some, you lose some, and if you're not able to assume that, this sport is not for you. He reminds me a frustrated little child, and I can'r stand it...

There was special reason. If you followed DC's story leading up to this fight, you'd understand how big of a deal this was to him. No one really told Joe to apologize. Joe felt compassion for DC on his own and felt guilty by his own conscience that he felt compelled to apologize. Also, DC still did the interview anyway so...it's all good.

Totally agree it wasn't great or necessary but I don't see it as a big deal. People are being over sensitive & too politically correct on the issue. That's all..

I don't see it that way. It's part of being human to be compassionate towards others. So it's understandable for DC not want to do it, and for Joe not to want to do something that went against his conscience. Though in this case, DC was eventually forced to do it, I wouldn't have minded if they didn't do the interview in this case.

I don't see what's the big deal of Joe apologizing and what DC did either.
