Joe Rogan: Call me a bitch, but I almost cried during Ronda Rousey interview at UFC 190

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) color commentator Joe Rogan has been working the mixed martial arts (MMA) mic for nearly 20 years, but his passion for combat sports hasn't dwindled one bit.

That was clearly evident during his post-fight conversation with Ronda Rousey this past weekend (Sat., Aug. 1, 2015) at UFC 190 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, as Rogan admitted it was the first time he ever came close to shedding some tears while interviewing a fighter.

And if you want to call him a "bitch" for doing so, then so be it.

If you forward to the 2:40 mark of the video embedded below, you can clearly see the moment when Joe was doing his best to keep his emotions in check.

Nothing wrong with a little passion!

Rousey knocked out previously undefeated Bethe Correia in 34 seconds to retain her UFC women's bantamweight title (see it again here).

Up next for "Rowdy" is a third fight against Miesha Tate (second inside the Octagon), which is tentatively planned to take place at Dallas Cowboys Stadium on Dec. 5, 2015.

Get that hankie ready!
