Joe Rogan is currently one of the most popular personalities in the world of MMA, largely thanks to his commentary skills and also his podcast, and he just recovered from being ill with COVID. Conor McGregor’s crazy message to Joe Rogan was also leaked previously.
At UFC 269, Julianna Peña shocked the world as she did the unthinkable and made Amanda Nunes tap out in the second round of their bantamweight title fight. Afterwards, Julianna Peña paid a direct homage to Nate Diaz.
Joe Rogan recently spoke on The Joe Rogan Experience, where he said Amanda Nunes was far too tired in the fight.
“She was like trying to take her out quick and then when Julianna was still there, you could tell she was f***** tired. For you to be a world champ in two divisions and universally recognized as the greatest women fighter of all time – which Amanda Nunes is – it’s [inexcusable] to be that tired in the second round. Just standing in front of her. Just swinging in front of her no movement side-to-side. Standing right in front of her like you’re watching a regional fight.”
The ‘Tribute to the Kings’ event headlined by MMA legend Anderson Silva and former WBC middleweight titleholder Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. took place on Saturday, June 19, at Jalisco Stadium in Guadalajara, Mexico. It was promoted by Borizteca Boxing and Toscano Promotions and produced by Global Sports Streaming. As revealed by reports, it seems the promoters of the event wanted to get UFC megastars, Nate and Nick Diaz, to compete in boxing matches at the event as well. However, while Nate Diaz was definitely interested in competing at the event, it seems the UFC prevented him from doing so. Jake Paul also begged Nate Diaz in a previously leaked phone call.
Nate Diaz also squared off against Leon Edwards at UFC 263 in a highly competitive fight that saw Nate Diaz lose in a shocking result to the fight. After the fight, Edwards called for a shot at Kamaru Usman’s UFC welterweight title following his win and that irritated people including Gilbert Burns.
