Joe Rogan argued against the unanimous verdict awarding Islam Makhachev the victory over Alexander Volkanovski. Similar to Rogan, the mixed martial arts community doesn’t seem to agree on who won UFC 284’s main event.
Makhachev won the bout 48–47 according to two judges, however the Dagestani won it 48–46 according to judge Derek Cleary. Many supporters think that Volkanovski deserved to have his hand raised, and Cleary’s decision has become a major source of debate.
Even though Alexander Volkanovski lost the battle, many MMA professionals, like as Nate Diaz and Dillon Danis, complimented the Australian fighter. Former UFC heavyweight fighter Brendan Schaub and jiu-jitsu instructor Eddie Bravo were among the members of Joe Rogan’s crew who attended the pay-per-view event when he was not performing his duties as the show’s host.
Rogan couldn’t hide his sadness when the outcome was revealed, and everyone on the webcast immediately mentioned “robbery.” They claimed Volkanovski had performed well enough to win according to the scorecards. uttered Rogan: “Oh my God! We had no doubts that Alexander Volkanovski had prevailed. We might need to watch it once more. Check out what people are saying online. I perceived the score to be 3-2.
