I think Cowboy was already hurt here but look at how perfectly Pettis set up the knee and angle with the punches and lead into the cage jump.

This is awesome shit!

And even if the flashy stuff doesnt connect flush, if you are fighting a guy like Pettis, you must be thinking, wtf else do i have to watch out for? The usual punches and kick angles is opened up so much more.

To rogan and goldbergs credit, they gave cerrone a nod for the perfectly timed knee against the first "showtime" attack

The knee off the cage did not look like it landed/caused damage in real time Phone Post

lesnar911 - Its really obvious when rogan and goldie watches the fight infront of them, instead of the monitor. They tend to miss a lot of stuff which you know rogan would go nuts for if he saw it.

In fairness to Joe and Goldie, I didn't think either of those moves connected either. It wasn't until I saw the replays that I noticed the flying knee landed pretty flush.

In real time, they both looked like misses.

Still just weird that they didnt comment, you dont have to connect to make people say something, usually, anything with intentions, strike or sub or anything that has a wow factor, the announcers will play up to make the audience more excited.

Not calling bias but def weird.

there is no angle they could have missed the cartwheel kick, the knee off the cage, yes.

Leck Brosnar - It really is weird how he can handle Benson pretty efficiently, "lose" to Guida, barely get by Stephens but highlight reels Cerrone like a boss.
Styles make fights son. Phone Post

IIRC, Bendo/Pettis was super close and likely won at the end of the Matrix kick.

Both guys have improved, lets do this shit again.
Epic close. What a great fight that was Phone Post

just re-watched it. "WOW! Big knee by cowboy!" instead of the crazy kick lol. Goldie mentions pettis attempted sort of a wheelkick a bit later and rogan says "donald discouraged that with a Big knee to the body"

yup...weird.

they did comment on the knee off the cage didn't they? I am almost positive they did, I will rewatch it.

I do agree that in real time they didn't look like they landed so clean. It's so fast, I didn't fully comprehend how cool both those shots were.

People crying bias and whining about the commentary (not you wasa), there wasn't much time for them to even get in a rhythm, it was over so fast.

Yeah, but its still weird for the guys not to say anything when any of the fighters tries something big.

I like Rogan, Goldie is Goldie but 2 out of this world techs and no mention that they happened = the weird.

pettis is a beast man. If he continues to improve his wrestling, he's going to be extremely hard to beat. His striking is off the charts

OK, rewatched the fight. Goldberg does eventually mention the cartwheel kick but it's a little later on. When he lands the knee off the cage Goldberg says "And look at that. So entertaining"
