UFC commentator Joe Rogan was very impressed by Dustin Poirier’s TKO victory over former two-part champion Conor McGregor.

Poirier met McGregor at the UFC 257 main event in Abu Dhabi on Saturday. The lightweight match was a rematch of the 2014 featherweight contest, where McGregor won the first round of knockouts. In the end, Poirier evened the score with the Irishman, cut him down with a series of calf kicks, and knocked him out with a punch in the second round.

Logan wasn’t on UFC 257 mission and reduced his commitment to commenting on pay-per-view on US land, but was clearly tuned to monitor the event.

Like most others who have seen him, he is amazed at Poirier’s performance against McGregor and makes the American a “crownless champion” if division ruler Khabib Nurmagomedov sticks to his retirement plans. I consider it as.

“Congratulations on Dustin Poirier’s brilliant victory last night,” Logan wrote about Poirier after UFC 257. [pounds] He is absolutely one of the most fierce fighters on the planet, and if Habib really retires for my money, Dustin is the uncrowned champion! “

Poirier, who defeated McGregor, defeated Dan Hooker in June to win two consecutive races and take the lead in the lightweight title battle. It’s still unclear who he will fight next, but it’s almost immeasurable that the belt isn’t on the line. And if the fight takes place in US soil, Joe Rogan is likely to work at the commentary desk.

Logan works for the UFC Since 1997.. Initially, he was a behind-the-scenes interviewer for promotions, but soon moved to the role of color commentator. Since then, he’s been involved in promotions and has become part of a UFC card as big as the Octagon itself.
