Initially, longtime UFC commentator Joe Rogan believed that Holly Holm’s finishing of Ronda Rousey was the best knockout in women’s mixed martial arts (MMA) history.

However, that has since changed.

After Amanda Nunes recently became the first woman to ever knockout Cris Cyborg at UFC 232 last month, Rogan has updated his list. Speaking on a recent episode of his “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, Rogan explained why “The Lioness” now has the greatest knockout in women’s MMA history (via BJPenn.com):

“Until Amanda knocked out Cyborg, [Holly Holm] had the greatest highlight reel KO in a championship fight,” Rogan said.

“Well… In a championship fight. I think that Jessica Andrade, when she knocked out Karolina Kowalkiewicz, that was a bigger knockout than Holly Holm’s. Well, not bigger. But it was right up there.”

Rogan was impressed with how easily Nunes took out Cyborg, who hadn’t lost a fight at the time in over a decade:

“Amanda just took the f**king cake,” Rogan said. “She’s like ‘you think you saw the best women’s MMA KO ever? Hold my beer’. Cause it’s who she did it to. It’s everything.”

Indeed who she did it to was everything, as Cyborg was far and away the most dominant fighter in women’s MMA history. Now, that title may belong to Nunes.

The title of the best knockout ever does as well according to Rogan.

There’s no doubt that longtime UFC welterweight and lightweight competitor Nate Diaz is one of the most beloved fighters in UFC history.

Along with his brother, Nick, the Diaz brothers are some of mixed martial arts’ (MMA) most recognizable names. On a recent episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” longtime UFC commentator Joe Rogan offered his thoughts on Nate Diaz. He explained why fans love him so much (via BJPenn.com):

“One of the reasons why Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor was so big is because people love Nate Diaz too,” Rogan said. “It’s not just Conor McGregor.

“No disrespect to Eddie Alvarez, but when Conor McGregor fought Eddie Alvarez, the vast majority of the eyes were on Conor McGregor. When Conor McGregor fights Nate Diaz, you’re looking at a lot of people who love Nate Diaz.

“Cause he doesn’t give a f**k. He legitimately doesn’t give a f**k. He smokes weed all the time. People love it. They love the fact that those guys are like that.”

Diaz really shot up in fame back in 2016 when he became the first man to defeat Conor McGregor in the UFC. He forced the Irishman to submit in the second round via rear-naked choke. The pair rematched several months later in a huge pay-per-view (PPV) event.

It was, perhaps, one of the most memorable buildups to a fight in recent memory. When it was all over, McGregor won the rematch via majority decision. McGregor has promised to grant Diaz a trilogy rematch since Diaz gave McGregor an immediate rematch after their first fight.

Joe Rogan has once again provided mixed martial arts (MMA) fans with a hilarious fight-ending reaction.

Rogan was calling the action for UFC 232 on pay-per-view (PPV) this past weekend (Sat. December 29, 2018) in Inglewood, California. He got to witness Amanda Nunes make history in the co-main event of the evening. “The Lioness” knocked out Cris Cyborg in under a minute in the first round of their fight.

The reaction of Rogan was caught on the UFC’s “The Thrill and The Agony” YouTube video. Check it out here:

With her win, Nunes became the first-ever female “champ-champ” in the history of the UFC. She was already the 135-pound champion heading into the fight and defeated Cyborg to become the featherweight champion. Cyborg has since said she’d like to jump in for a rematch with Nunes. However, UFC President Dana White doesn’t seem too hot about the idea.

Given how dominant Nunes’ performance over Cyborg was, it’s hard to justify a rematch so soon. It remains to be seen what the future holds for the ‘The Lioness’ in 2019.

But one thing is for sure, it will certainly be a pleasure to watch.
