UFC Quick Quote: Joe Rogan tells TJ Dillashaw 'that was the greatest performance I have ever seen!'

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

That was one helluva' a show that T.J. Dillashaw put on last night, but was it the best evah?

"That was the greatest performance I have ever seen in my life!… You surpasses all expectations tonight with this performance. This was just … stunning…. This was incredible…. T.J., this is one of the finest performances I have ever seen. The best performance — I’ll say it right now — this is the most spectacular performance I have ever seen against a guy in Barao who is easily one of the best pound-for-pound fighters on the planet. Congratulations on just a masterful work tonight. It was an honor calling this fight. Thank you very much, brother."

-- Over-the-top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) color commentator, Joe Rogan, poured it on thick last night (Sat., May 24, 2014) in his post-fight interview with T.J. Dillashaw, who delivered the performance of a lifetime to upset dominant Bantamweight champion, Renan Barao, with a fifth-round technical knockout in UFC 173's main event. Even before the finish, Dillashaw was routing the Brazilian, who company president Dana White claimed was the clear-cut No. 2-ranked pound-for-pound fighter on the planet. Not anymore. Dillashaw -- who wasn't even the first choice to fight Barao (it was Raphael Assuncao) -- scored one of the biggest upsets in UFC championship history. It certainly wasn't on par with Matt Serra upending George St-Pierre or even Randy Couture turning back time at the expense of Tim Sylvia, but it was a memorable performance. But, the best ever? That's a debatable stretch ... even for the passionate Rogan. To watch full T.J.
