Everyone was shocked after Holly Holm’s second round knockout of Ronda Rousey on Saturday night (which was really Sunday in most places). But perhaps no one was more shocked than UFC commentator Joe Rogan.
There are few moments in a sports fan’s life when one is literally left speechless. That’s exactly what happened to Rogan seconds after Holm sent Rousey to the mat with a kick to the neck.
Of course, being left speechless is never good if you’re supposed to be announcing a fight. However, if your jaw didn’t drop for at least five seconds after Holm’s quick beatdown, you’re not a true sports fan.
On an unrelated note, I highly recommend listening to Rogan’s podcast. He’s not the sharpest tool in the shed, but Rogan knows how to have a deep, intellectual conversation and he has great guests.
