Joe Rogan: UFC interim champ Yair Rodriguez 'one of the wildest motherf*ckers that's ever fought in MMA' || Super Admin
Yair Rodriguez's fighting style has garnered immense admiration from renowned UFC commentator Joe Rogan.
Regarded as one of the most innovative strikers in the UFC, Rodriguez has delivered numerous awe-inspiring finishes that are often featured in highlight reels. Memorable knockouts, such as his roundhouse kick that took out Andre Fili and his buzzer-beater upward elbow knockout of Chan Sung Jung, demonstrate his creativity inside the octagon.
In a recent episode of "The Joe Rogan Experience," Rogan expressed his astonishment and enthusiasm while discussing some of "El Pantera's" career highlights. Rogan described Rodriguez (15-3 MMA, 10-2 UFC) as one of the wildest fighters in MMA, praising his incredible kicks and his background in taekwondo. Rogan highlighted a particular moment when Rodriguez executed a spectacular 360 roundhouse kick on B.J. Penn, leaving a lasting impression.
Rogan continued to emphasize Rodriguez's versatility and dynamic striking skills, remarking on his proficiency both on the ground and in stand-up exchanges. He mentioned Rodriguez's victory over Josh Emmett, where he secured an octagon finish by submitting Emmett with a triangle choke, showcasing his prowess on the ground. Rogan labeled Rodriguez as "wicked" and expressed admiration for his ability to constantly surprise opponents with unique techniques, describing him as a "f*cking genius."
Rodriguez's next challenge will be to unify his interim featherweight title with the reigning champion, Alexander Volkanovski (25-2 MMA, 12-1 UFC), in the main event of UFC 290 on July 8 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
