The Notorious‘, who took to Twitter to answer questions from his fans, responded to a fan’s eagerness to know if he would appear on Joe Rogan’s podcast. McGregor said, “I’d love to! I feel at some stage we should! I’ve a lot of respect for Joe. He shouted me out before anyone else in the UFC also. Before I had signed with the company.”
