Even though he was away from the commentary desk at UFC Brasilia, Joe Rogan still came out with a reaction to the event’s proceedings.

Charles Oliveira took the win home against Kevin Lee in the third round. The Brazilian national used a tight guillotine choke as a response to Lee’s attempt to take him down. Oliveira forced Lee to tap out within 30 seconds of the third round. However, what stood out in the fight was the fact that Kevin Lee tried to grab hold of Oliveira’s legs even after he tapped out.

“He tapped and he tried to go back to fighting. Dude, he tapped and he went back. Oh my God. Do you think he went to sleep and then came back? Do you think he put him to sleep? He tapped and then he went right back to wrestling,”- Joe Rogan on Kevin Lee

One of the guests on Rogan’s show, Brendan Schaub tried to explain the bizarre move from Lee by saying that he was probably hoping to get away with the tap without anyone noticing.

“Maybe he was hoping that people didn’t see the tap.”- Brendan Schaub

However, after having watched the replay Rogan speculates that maybe Oliveira choked the American unconscious and that Lee doesn’t recall tapping. Which would explain his attempt to keep fighting even after the referee had intervened.

“It’s like he woke up and jumped on his back. Oh my goodness. Wow, that’s crazy. He must have woke up. [Oliveira] must have choked him out, he must have choked him unconscious and [Lee] woke up thinking the fight was still going on. That’s crazy.”- Joe Rogan on Kevin Lee’s submission

What do you think was going on inside Kevin Lee’s head towards the end of the fight at UFC Brasilia?
