I really don’t understand it. Love him or hate him, Joe Rogan knows this sport very well. No, he doesn’t compete, but he’s been around since the beginning, and he trains with world athletes and coaches in all different elements of the game. Does he overreact to certain situations sometimes as a commentator? Yes.
I’ve heard Joe refer to Max Holloway as the greatest featherweight of ALL TIME on multiple occasions. How can he even consider that to be the case? I get it if your a fan of someone, but as a UFC Commentator, you try not to show bias, and always give credit where credit is due.
It’s not even arguable that Max the greatest of all time.
Jose Aldo is arguably the greatest featherweight of all time. He ran through everybody in WEC, then when the UFC created their featherweight division and merged the WEC guys into it, Jose ran through everyone there.
Then came along The Notorious One, Conor McGregor. 13 seconds and he dethrones they featherweight king. Now I know Conor has been gifted a lot fights, but that wasn’t the case here. Conor earned his title shot at featherweight against Jose defeating guys like Brandao, Mendes, Poirier and Holloway to get there. Of course, we all know McGregor didn’t defend his featherweight title, but I truly believe it was because he had so many other opportunities presented to him. We all know how it goes after that.
So who is the greatest Featherweight of ALL TIME in your opinion? Is it Holloway, Aldo, or McGregor and why?
