Joe Rogan commented on the Cheyanne Vlismas bonus video and the controversy

At UFC Fight Night: Hall vs Strickland, Cheyanne Vlismas won her fight and added style points by landing a head kick that led to the finish. After the fight, Vlismas learned that she had won the night bonus performance for her performance, and she melted upon hearing the news.

Rogan was talking about the fighter’s compensation issues with guest Chad Mendes on his wildly popular show, The Joe Rogan Experience #113 (JRE MMA Show). Then he watched the Vlismas video and said: “She was crying and all these people got online and started complaining about the UFC.”

Rogan added that he understands both sides and suggested why some fighters don’t get paid enough, “A lot of people still don’t know who she is… All about sports is how many people are going to watch you fight… How hot are you? How entertaining are you, how engaging are you? Your personality and do you put a *** in the seats?
