This was how historically bad Derrick Lewis and Francis Ngannou were at UFC 226.

Joe Rogan did not hold back on the quality of the UFC 226 co-main event between Derrick Lewis and Francis Ngannou. With much anticipation that we were about to see someone get knocked out, the fight was unbelievably dreadful even by heavyweight standards, and Rogan declared it the worst heavyweight bout ever.
