Welcome to today’s edition of Sportskeeda’s daily MMA News Roundup, where we present the biggest UFC updates and other stories from the world of mixed martial arts.
In today’s issue, we talk about Joe Rogan talking about Hollywood actors using steroids, Israel Adesanya dabbling with a new adventure sport on his vacation, and more.
After going through a war with Kevin Holland and emerging victorious at UFC Orlando, Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson came out of the octagon busted up near his eyebrows and needed multiple stitches.
Thompson’s close friend and teammate Chris Weidman posted an 11-minute long video on Instagram. ESPN MMA re-shared a segment of the video, where the nasty nature of the cut and the procedure of stitching it up can be seen.
Watch the video below (GRAPHIC WARNING):
Thompson and Holland agreed not to take the fight to the ground before it started. ‘Trailblazer’ faced severe criticism online for giving up top position on the canvas despite getting chopped down by Thompson’s karate.
In the end, Holland’s corner took the seemingly right decision to throw in the towel, saving the ‘part-time vigilante, full-time fighter’ from suffering more damage to his already compromised hand.

Joe Rogan is certain that several Hollywood actors regularly take steroids to make their physique look standout on the screen, and Dwayne Johnson is one of them.
While talking about the recently exposed Liver King on episode #1905 of his podcast, Rogan told Derek of More Plates More Dates that it is impossible for ‘The Rock’ to maintain the body that he does without the help of external chemicals:
The UFC commentator also mentioned the likes of Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor in the Marvel movies, and Hugh Jackman, who showed off ripped physique as Wolverine in the X-Men films, as actors who possibly use steroids.

Israel Adesanya is taking the middleweight title loss to Alex Pereira at UFC 281 on the chin and taking time off to recover. He spent some time in Tahiti and Mo’orea islands after UFC 281 and learned how to surf from a trained coach.
Adesanya posted a video on Monday of him surfing in low waves and revealed that he has learned a lot about “reading the ocean, coral reefs, and being patient.”

In a previous post, Adesanya admitted that visiting this part of the world has been on his bucket list for a while. After the world went through a reality check with COVID-19, ‘The Last Stylebender’ decided not to delay the trip any longer.
