Joe Rogan praises Arman Tsarukyan for his latest win

The celebrity MMA commentator believes that Davi Ramos is a special opponent. Thus, vanquishing him inside the octagon has seemingly thrilled Joe Rogan for all the obvious reasons. The UFC commentator wrote in the caption, “This @UFC undercard has some great talent, but this guy @arm_011 is a SERIOUS standout. At only 23 years old he’s one of the most promising talents in the sport, and a dominant victory tonight over a legit beast like Davi Ramos is super impressive. Keep your eyes on this kid!”

Needless to say, Joe Rogan’s “kid” has already called out Al Iaquinta in his post-fight interview. Boasting a UFC record of 2-1 now, Arman seems confident about taking on the top-rated lightweights. However, the Russian might have to prove himself several times before he finally attains a shot at the top-10 155 lbs contenders.

Arman faced Davi Ramos at UFC Fight Night and notched a one-sided dominance. Despite being unable to finish the fight, the Russian seemingly unveiled a one-man show in the matchup. With 91 significant strikes and 1 successful takedown, Tsarukyan bagged a comfortable win via unanimous decision.

A couple of more wins in the stacked 155 lbs division, and the 26-year-old can bag a shot at the top-10 fighters. However, for now, Tsarukyan has to keep doing what he is doing.
