But then things escalated quickly.
Cormier was in no condition to give an interview and Rogan has since apologized for interviewing him directly after the knockout.
Jon Jones launched a missile in Brock Lesnar's direction immediately after knocking out Cormier, urging the pro wrestler to return to the Octagon. Anybody at home who let yourself down, you let your family down, you let your parents down or your co-workers down, you let yourself down, it's never over.
It would later emerge that Cormier had suffered a concussion, and looking at his demeanor in the Octagon after the finish that seemed clear as when he did get to his feet after a few minutes he still looked unsteady, confused and agitated, apparently unaware that he'd been knocked out. Right after Jones called out Brock Lesnar and dropped the mic.
After 21/2 rounds of even, high-level striking, Jones landed a head kick that caught Cormier leaning in.
Jon Jones is back on top of the world.
When Jones asked him to name some, the former Strikeforce champion refused but mentioned that he had his own tendencies.
"I'm up for it. I think it's about time for me to be involved in a super-fight", he said. A perfectly timed head kick struck Cormier flush to the side of the head.
"He has been a model champion".
Lastly, in the third title fight, Cris Cyborg was able to triumph as she defeated a spirited Tonya Evinger in the third round to win the women's featherweight championship.
One Las Vegas sportsbook is already taking wagers on the potential superfight.
"Would I fight Jon Jones?". "I don't even know what happened". Oh man, that's so disappointing.
There is no word on if the match will actually be taking place.
She took her Twitter handle to address Triple H so that he allows Becky to feature in a single competition at the Summerslam event. They capped it with a round of boos when Woodley was announced as a unanimous decision winner with scores of 50-45, 49-46, and 49-46.
