The Rock looked gobsmacked when he reacted to Michael Chandler‘s awesome UFC knockout win in real-time Saturday.

American MMA fighter Chandler, a 36-year-old former three-time Bellator MMA champion, lit up the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona, with an electric front kick to Tony Ferguson’s face.

The technique was executed in such an accurate and powerful manner that it left Ferguson concussed on the floor for several minutes.

The victory advanced Chandler’s pro MMA record to 23 wins (11 knockouts, seven submissions, and five decisions) against seven losses.

It also sees him return to a strong position near the top of the lightweight division, as he now has two wins against two top-tier fighters, since moving to the UFC from Bellator.

Hollywood actor and former WWE superstar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson looked like the rest of us when he first saw Chandler’s most recent win, as the nature of the finish appeared to leave him speechless.

“Let’s fucking go, boys,” The Rock said during a selfie video, before turning the camera to face his television set which was showing the first round of Chandler and Ferguson’s UFC 274 lightweight match.

“Teremana toast,” he said. “Cheers”, he added, with a view of his cocktail – “The People’s Margarita.”

He then takes a sip and, as the commentators in the UFC event can be heard saying, “Oh!” The Rock’s eyes widen considerably.

The camera pans back to the TV screen, before returning to The Rock, who looked completely stunned by what had just happened.

Watch The Rock’s reaction right here:

The 50-year-old action movie sensation is a former eight-time WWE champion and two-time WCW champion, and he is a renowned fight fan, even appearing inside the Octagon for UFC 244 in November 2019 to present the symbolic “Bad Mother Fucker” belt to Jorge Masvidal.

The Floridian fighter Masvidal had beaten Nate Diaz via doctor’s stoppage in the “BMF” championship.

UFC returns Saturday for a “Fight Night” event that will take place inside its TV studio, called Apex.

Two additional “Fight Night” events follow ahead of a June 11 trip to Singapore for UFC 275. All events will be broadcast on ESPN.
