Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was stunned to see Michael Chandler knock Tony Ferguson out in this hilarious reaction video to UFC 274.
Last Saturday night in Phoenix, Michael Chandler and Tony Ferguson went to war in what proved to be a really fun lightweight showdown – for as long as it lasted.
Ferguson put Chandler under real pressure in the first round and even managed to drop him, but with less than half a minute gone in the second, it all went wrong for ‘El Cucuy’ as ‘Iron Mike’ landed a vicious front kick to the face that knocked the veteran out cold.
It was a KO heard around the globe and while some don’t believe it’s enough to earn Chandler another title shot just yet, it certainly got him a big step closer.
The eyes of the mixed martial arts world were firmly fixed on this pay-per-view and in addition to that, we also saw a few big names from outside the UFC checking in to catch the action.
One such example of that was ‘The Great One’ himself Dwayne ‘The Rock‘ Johnson. The Hollywood star had high praise for both Chandler and Ferguson last weekend and earlier this week, he decided to watch the fight back with hilarious consequences.
“Let me tell you something, you could feel the electricity and the mana. You could feel it through the TV. By the way, I can just imagine how it is in this arena. Let’s f***ing go boys.”
“Holy s***. F***ing incredible. Chandler caught Ferguson, I think with a high right kick. That was inf***ingcredible.”
Trust us, you’re gonna want to watch the video.
Johnson’s MMA passion
In addition to being a fan of the sport for years, Johnson has also taken part in a few interesting business deals alongside the UFC recently.
Back at UFC 244, he was present at Madison Square Garden to present the winner of the Jorge Masvidal vs Nate Diaz main event with the BMF title. Then, at the start of the year, it was announced that ‘Project Rock’ had entered a deal to become the official footwear partner of the UFC.
