Joe Rogan is a big fan of Liam Harrison’s high-octane style of fighting.
The longtime MMA commentator and podcaster welcomed ‘Hitman’ on an episode of his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience.
Harrison shared a clip of the exchange he had with Rogan and fight commentator Vinny Shoreman on Instagram:
“I’m a big fan of the way you fight, man,” exclaimed Rogan. “You fight like you’ve got rabbies.”
Shoreman, who was also a guest on the show, revealed that he is Liam Harrison’s biggest fan, though admitting that he may be a little biased, having worked with 'Hitman' on his emotional and physical well-being over the years.
“For me, it’s his style that makes it exciting,” said Shoreman. “You know, he’s not particularly a clincher, but he’s a crash bang wallop in a 150 mile an hour. I mean, I’m not going to lie, I’m his biggest fan. If you listen to the commentary, it’s totally 100% biased and I don’t f*cking care.”
Liam Harrison responded to Rogan and Shoreman’s comments, suggesting that a more measured approach in his fights would likely result in more wins, but that’s just not his style.
“I’ve always had that type of style,” Harrison explained. “You know what, sometimes I’ve probably lost fights on points because of wanting to go for the kill when probably I had a chance to change my game plan. I probably could have won, but that’s just not what I’m about.”
Liam Harrison believes consistency is key to becoming a true legend in combat sports
For Liam Harrison, consistency is what separates a good fighter from a great fighter. The three-time Muay Thai world champion may not have the best-looking record under the ONE Championship banner, but Muay Thai fans will never miss a card the British striker is part of.
Much of that is thanks to Harrison’s balls-to-the-wall style of fighting that keeps fans around the world on the edge of their seats. In an interview with ONE Championship, Harrison believes that his style of fighting gets the attention of combat sports fans. Still, consistency throughout the course of his career is what will separate him from the rest of the pack:
“Consistency has been my greatest achievement. There’s been a lot of flash-in-the-pan fighters that have come along from England. Anyone can come forward and win a couple of fights, but to do it consistently and keep doing it year after year for over 20 years nearly, that’s what will get people calling you the GOAT.”
