Longtime UFC color commentator Joe Rogan has seen a plethora of fighters pass through the Octagon during his time in the promotion.
Max Holloway is the current UFC Featherweight Champion, fresh off of a successful title defense leading to Rogan calling the title holder the best featherweight ever.
“He’s the baddest motherf**ker. I think he’s the best 145er ever. He might not agree with it yet because of the record, which I see his point, but the way he fights, the octagon I.Q. that he shows, his fight I.Q., his ability to find a weakness and see it, his predatory behavior inside the octagon, I think he’s the best. I really do. It’s so impressive to me,” Rogan said on the Joe Rogan Experience MMA Podcast.
Holloway was last seen competing at UFC 218, where he handed former featherweight champion Jose Aldo a third round TKO loss.
Prior to Holloway, the longtime UFC employee says that it was Aldo who held the crown as the best featherweight ever.
“Aldo, in his prime, was spectacular and amazingly impressive. His flying knee first-round knockout of Cub Swanson, the knockout of Chad Mendes, the Urijah Faber fight where he brutalized Urijah’s leg, he’s unquestionably one of the greats of all time, but in my opinion, skill wise, Max Holloway has now surpassed him. I think he’s the best,” says Rogan.
In a possible attempt to become the best fighter ever, the UFC Featherweight Champion recently stated he wants to hold four titles in the UFC.
