Former UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes disagrees with Joe Rogan’s commentary on the Martin Kampmann vs Jake Shields fight last Saturday at UFC 121.
“From a technical view, Kampmann had a terrible fight, in my opinion, he gave the fight to Shields … One thing I will say is Joe Rogan’s commentary was a little off during the fight. The ground game was pretty even in my book with Shields doing a little more controlling. Kampmann escaped to his feet several times and Kampmann had more submission attempts than Shields had, but listening to Rogan, you would have thought Shields had submitted him the first ten seconds of being on the ground. I really think the UFC could use a third man doing the broadcast, that has some experience inside the Octagon. I don’t disagree with everything Rogan says, but there are a lot of things he says that I just laugh at.” [Matt-Hughes]
