    Rogan is a terrible listener now and is bringing shame to all us mma fans. He just keeps talking like all the others internet noobs: you are wrong.
    Stephen said: the fight was too short, we didn't learn anything from it (aside from the shoulda punches of instant death) and he stands to that statement.
    I guess Rogan just doesn't care anymore, he is so rich and comfortable and talks random sheet.

    He was right in that we didn't learn anything useful about Conor

    Did that fight answer any questions about his grappling or cardio? Not at all.

    What did we learn? That he's fast and has KO power? He can hurt a shot fighter with an unconventional technique that would never work against any willing wrestler?

    We didn't learn anything. We just CONFIRMED things we already knew.

    If someone asked you who would win the clinch exchanges in McGregor vs Cerrone before the fight, what would you say?

    We learned that McGregor is stronger than Cerrone in the clinch, and that he is focused and can still perform at the highest level despite not fighting for a year.

    LMAO I forgot about this, good point.

    I would've bet Cerrone would beat him in the clinch just based on Cerrones Muay Thai background. I do remember him having good knees on entrances and breaks from the clinch I believe.

    I hope Joe has him on. Just so I can hear him tell Joe to “stay off the weeduh”.

    Stephen A wins via Louder Voice. And if he’s losing he can always revert to “As a black man in America.......”

    " I’m quite disgusted,” Smith said. “Let me be very, very clear: I’m honored to be up here with you guys. I’m a spectator watching the sport. I expected to see more than 40 seconds. I predicted McGregor was going to win this fight inside of two rounds. I thought he would take him out.

    “Here’s the deal: 15 seconds in, ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone was done. He got hit with those shoulders in the clinch, and he was done. It look like he gave up. It was just an atrocious performance on his part."

    Stephen is entitled to his opinion,but he is supposed to be a professional analyst.
    He sounded like a casual fratboy with his "analysis" of the fight.
    If he wanted to make the case that Cerrone had a bad performance, or didnt look prepared, he could have done it in a much more respectful way than he did.

    MMA isnt boxing. A fight can legitimately end in 15 seconds. That doesnt mean the guy wasnt prepared, or is a quitter. Stephen didnt seem to get that.
    When you dont have much knowledge of the sport and athletes, as someone that is supposed to be commentating, you probably shouldnt be questioning the heart of a guy and throwing out words like ' atrocious' and 'disgusted' to describe a fight.
    Disappointed that the fight didnt go longer? Sure. We all were. But all that other shit was unnecessary

    He should've paid Nate Diaz in the first fight.

    Cowboy did give up and was beaten before the fight started. Stop hating on people that tell the truth because you don't like it.

    that may be true also, but the original statement Stephens said was: the fight was too short, we didn't learn anything from it. Which is 120% correct statement. SHill Rogan went on to shamelessly defend the fight by accusing Stephens of being a noob, also acting like if Stephens had accused ufc of fixed fight or something which he didn't. Rogan is becoming worse by year.

    It was in reference to the peeps saying Cerrone just standing and taking the shoulder shots being "suspicious" . Not his first rodeo freezing up.

    Um yeah he did lol

    "Here’s the deal: 15 seconds in, ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone was done. He got hit with those shoulders in the clinch, and he was done. It look like he gave up"

    Literally, he said "he gave up". Do you know what quit means

    Rogan only brings shame to those who take him seriously. He doesn't bring me shame.
