Joe Rogan’s Unbelievable Reaction to Sean Strickland’s Shocking Victory at UFC 293

The UFC's Voice Left Stunned by Strickland's Dominance and Upset Over Adesanya

In a jaw-dropping turn of events at UFC 293, Joe Rogan, the voice of the UFC, was left stunned as he watched the main event unfold. Although he wasn’t cageside to call the action, Rogan hosted a JRE Fight Companion with fellow hosts Bryan Callen, Brendan Schaub, and Sam Tripoli, and their reactions were nothing short of disbelief.

The pivotal moment came in the first round of the main event, where Sean Strickland unleashed a barrage of punches, dropping and nearly finishing the reigning champion, Israel Adesanya. The world collectively held its breath as Adesanya miraculously survived the onslaught, but it was a sign of things to come.

As the fight progressed, it became increasingly clear that Strickland’s dominance was not a fluke. His relentless aggression and pinpoint striking kept Adesanya on the defensive. While the judges ultimately scored the bout in Strickland’s favor with four rounds to one (49-46 across the board), Rogan didn’t mince words in his assessment.

“That is f*cking crazy,” Rogan exclaimed as he watched Strickland’s masterful performance unfold. “There is one round Izzy might have won, but I don’t think he did. All of those significant strikes, that’s nonsense. You’re looking at leg kicks that get checked; you can’t count those as significant strikes.”

Rogan’s admiration for Strickland’s wild and relentless style was evident throughout the fight. As the final bell rang and Strickland was declared the new middleweight champion of the world, Rogan couldn’t help but express his regret at not being cageside for such a historic moment.

“That wild motherfccker,” Rogan marveled. “Middleweight champion of the world. God, I wish I was there. I wish I was there for that.”

In the world of mixed martial arts, where the unexpected is the norm, Sean Strickland’s incredible upset victory over Israel Adesanya at UFC 293 will forever be etched in the annals of the sport’s history. And Joe Rogan’s reaction, mirroring the shock and awe of fans around the globe, captured the essence of this unforgettable moment.
