#3. “Extremely strange and unprofessional” – Fan opinion on Joe Rogan’s commentary

Joe Rogan at UFC 273

“[UFC 277 is] the real world title fight. I don’t think we’re ever going to see DF down at 125 again, and I think those two gentlemen, there’s a real good argument that Moreno won that last fight as well. So that is, in my opinion, that’s the world title fight right there.”

Fans thought that Rogan’s comments came off as disrespectful towards the undisputed flyweight champion, who was present at the venue with his belt to watch the fight unfold. They sounded off on Twitter, calling the color commentator out for his ‘unprofessionalism’ during a live broadcast.

Joe Rogan just completely shit over Deiveson Figueiredo on the #UFC277 broadcast. Basically implied he’s not the real UFC flyweight champion. That was very odd.

White: Julianna has a big chunk missing from her forehead. She’s going to see a plastic surgeon right now. … She got pretty banged up tonight. #UFC277

Pena’s gnarly cuts did seem quite severe as she left the octagon, while the cage links were still dripping with her blood.

This is the end of the fight. You can literally see strings of Julianna’s blood hanging between the cage links, while she’s in there still trying to pull out a miracle. What a badass.

However, Pena cleared the air on the matter after some initial recovery, confirming that she won’t be needing any surgery after all.

“Tougher than a two dollar steak. Thanks for the love everyone! Just a cat scratch that required a few stitches, no chunks missing, no surgery necessary. Love you all! We’re 1-1 now.”

In the hashtags for the post, Pena pitched a trilogy fight with Nunes since they’re now squared up in their series.
