Fans Call Out Rogan as They Share Their Disgust After Li Jingliang Faces ‘Daylight Robbery’ at UFC 279: “F**K YOU JOE ROGAN”
Fans called out the UFC color commentator Joe Rogan after welterweight Li Jingliang faced a controversial split decision loss at UFC 279 in Las Vegas.
The Chinese UFC fighter was originally scheduled to clash against the UFC veteran Tony Ferguson. However, Khamzat Chimaev, the main event fighter, missed weight by a large margin. Hence, the card was reshuffled and Jingliang was set against Daniel Rodriguez.
Rodriguez came in the bout 10 pounds heavier than the ‘Leech.’ However, Jingliang looked confident against the American fighter. Although Rodriguez landed a few good shots, it seemed ‘The Leech’ had more grip in the fight.

‘The Leech’ came on the back of one win into this bout. And after this loss, the Chinese fighter will have to map his way back to the win column to hold a relevant position in the welterweight roster.
Meanwhile, ‘D-Rod’, a product of the Dana White Contender Series, continued his win streak and is undefeated in four straight UFC fights. He has only lost once in his UFC career. However, he is yet to be ranked among the top 15 fighters of the division. But after his victory over the number 14th fighter, Rodriguez might get a place among the top 15 of the division.
