Joe Rogan didn’t hold back in his assessment of Amanda Nunes performance during her shock bantamweight title loss to Julianna Pena last weekend when he looked back on the fight with his guest Marlon Vera on his Spotify podcast.
Rogan went as far as to brand the second round action from the double-champ as being “like watching a regional fight,” as an exhausted Nunes highly regarded striking technique and composure crumbled under Pena’s constant pressure.
“She was like trying to take her out quick and then when Julianna was still there, you could tell she was f***** tired,” Rogan told Vera. “For you to be a world champ in two divisions and universally recognized as the greatest women fighter of all time – which Amanda Nunes is – it’s [inexcusable] to be that tired in the second round. Just standing in front of her. Just swinging in front of her no movement side-to-side. Standing right in front of her like you’re watching a regional fight.”
