  • Joe Rogan declared Max Holloway’s KO win over Justin Gaethje at UFC 300 as the greatest of all time
  • The UFC commentator thinks “Blessed” is still in his prime and is already arguably the greatest featherweight of all time

Joe Rogan heaped praise on Max Holloway’s epic knockout win over Justin Gaethje to become the UFC’s BMF and declared it as the greatest knockout of all time.

Joe said it

Speaking cage-side while recapping UFC 300 alongside Jon Anik and Daniel Cormier, Rogan summarized how “Blessed” pulled off what he called the best knockout finish in MMA history.

“That’s the greatest knockout of all time,” Rogan said. “With so many people counting him out, with so many people thinking he was outgunned, with so many people thinking he wouldn’t have a chance against the firepower of Justin Gaethje.”

“The fact that he called for that with 10 seconds left in the fight and put the lights out on one of the most dangerous men to ever fight in the sport. The fact that he did it this way, too, that he pointed to the center of the octagon, pointed to the floor and said, ‘Let’s throw down right here’ and then sleeps Justin Gaethje with one punch. In a fight where a lot of people thought he was gonna get outgunned. Where a lot of people thought he was going to get hurt,” he added.

Joe says the best of Max is yet to come

Rogan also noted how impressive Holloway performed as a lightweight. For the veteran UFC commentator, fans have yet to witness the best of Holloway but at this point, “Blessed” is already arguably the best featherweight of all time.

“He looked so good. But it’s all about giving Max the time to prepare for lightweight. He looked thicker, he looked denser, he put muscle on, and he prepared for a terrifying fighter. And he knew what he was going in against, and that’s what a guy like Max Holloway needs with all these years in the game,” Rogan said.

“We’ve got to remember Max Holloway is 32, but he was in here at 20 years old. And he needs something like that for us to see how great he truly is… Max Holloway is one of the greatest, if not the greatest featherweight of all time. And what you saw is that he’s one of the greatest fighters of all time, period. And he’s still 32. He’s in his prime right now. I think a lot of people forgot that,” he concluded.

Indeed, Holloway’s knockout win over Gaethje cemented his position in the pantheon of MMA’s all-time greats. Expectedly, “Blessed” is now being targeted by a fellow top contender in Michael Chandler.

Chandler wants to steal Holloway’s BMF title and he is planning to make it happen possibly after beats Conor McGregor at UFC 303.

Holloway is now unbeaten in his last three trips to the Octagon. His last two wins came by way of knockout.
