Joe Rogan loves a good UFC fight. And that’s exactly what UFC 283 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, offered. Without a doubt, the world witnessed a fight that would be etched in gold in the book of UFC. While Jamahal Hill went toe-to-toe in the Octagon against Glover Teixeira, Rogan urged the world to acknowledge Hill’s struggles. Furthermore, the fact that Teixeira, although beaten to a pulp, seemingly denied going down and stood his ground for five straight rounds burned the fire of excitement and stupefaction in the crowd. However, there has to be a victor in such games. But Rogan wasn’t slow to congratulate ‘Sweat Dreams’ as the fighter claimed the title.

Although the fighter secured the title of light heavyweight champion, he broke down in tears after the bell rang. It was indeed a fight that he fought hard to win. Nonetheless, Teixeira’s resilience made it even harder for Hill to win.

The light heavyweight champion broke down as he was about to be crowned. Defeating a giant in his home ground was a feat that very few chosen ones have achieved. The newly crowned champion declared it was a hard-fought win, indeed.

‘Sweet Dreams’ said in his UFC octagon interview, “I had to fight for everything … I had to fight just to live.” Without a doubt, the fighter will face even tougher foes in the Octagon. Nonetheless, he has time to prepare and take in all the praise thrown at him. After all, it was a well-deserved win for Hill.
