Joe Rogan had his mind blown by the performance of Max Holloway as he shattered several UFC records against his opponent Calvin Kattar. He sited his combinations, angles, and intelligence in the ring as something completely off the chars and couldn’t believe the impressive win over Kattar.
Rogan posted on his social media about Holloway’s performance as well as another post about the records he broke,
“Legit superhuman performance by @blessedmma. I am truly blown away. He was already one of the best fighters in the sport and he reached a completely new level tonight.
The combinations, the angles, the volume, the octagon IQ… it was completely off the charts.
So interesting that he didn’t even spar for this camp. That was about as impressive a performance as I’ve ever seen, and hats off to @calvinkattar for being one of the toughest motherfuckers alive and a complete savage. Very few men could have weathered that barrage like he did.”

Art.”, “Amazing!”, “Amazing performance 👊”, “This was the best performance I’ve ever seen in my life.” and “Fight of the year 2021?!?! How can someone top that”.
