Joe Rogan dismisses any speculation or theory that the headliner of UFC Beijing between Francis Ngannou and Curtis Blaydes was stopped early. The longtime UFC color commentator talked about this topic on a recent episode of his podcast.

Ngannou TKO’d Blaydes in 44 seconds in the first round of this heavyweight slugfest in the main event of UFC Beijing. The event went down Saturday (November 24, 2018) at Cadillac Arena in Beijing, China. UFC’s streaming service, UFC Fight Pass, aired the entire show. This marked a rematch between the two stars.

This was a rematch between the two stars. Coming into this fight, Blaydes had won four straight since losing his UFC debut to Ngannou in April 2016.

Following this fight, there were some people who thought that it was an early stoppage. However, Rogan disagrees with this theory and explained his take during a Fight Companion session.

“I don’t think it was an early stoppage,” Rogan said (H/T to MMANews). “It looks like it was almost an early stoppage, and then they let it go on, and then it was a decent stoppage. Didn’t it seem like at the beginning they were going to stop it [earlier]? The level of standup between them — I mean Curtis Blaydes is a good standup fighter but a really good wrestler. His wrestling stats are some of the best in the heavyweight division ever.”
