What would be the best part of the fights that take place in the UFC events? Some say the hype of the fight, some say the fight itself, while some believe it’s the knockout or the submission. It might be any of these, but one has to agree that the most entertaining parts are the commentator reactions.
The commentators make the finish seem a hundred times more entertaining and just seeing them makes one laugh and get hyped up. Let’s have a look at some of the best reactions of the commentary booth for 2021.
5. Cory Sandhagen vs Frankie Edgar commentator reactions
Cory Sandhagen landed a flying knee on Frankie Edgar and the commentary stand totally lost it! When the fighter lands such an outrageous blow and knocks out the opponent cold, the reaction is totally expected to match the outrageous nature of the knockout.
Joe Rogan and Daniel Cormier can be totally trusted to give the most entertaining reaction to a good finish. The Sandhagen vs Edgar match was one such match. After Sandhagen landed a vicious and savage flying knee to the face, the judges couldn’t believe their eyes and were so shocked that they launched out of their chairs.

Micheal Chandler vs Dan Hooker was one of the best fights of UFC 257. The commentators made sure to make it one of the most memorable fights of the year. The favorite way of finishing the match for commentators is a knockout, and Chandler provided them with just that.
The fact that the fight was Chandler’s debut match made the reaction even more special and entertaining. Chandler didn’t take too much time to announce his entry and finish Dan ‘The Hangman’ Hooker, who was expected to win.
