Gunnar's striking is deceptively good as well. It kind of gets overshadowed by his ground game and denigrated by the "hands up at all times or your striking sucks" crowd, but check out some of the strikes he landed on Jorge Santiago, especially that step-in uppercut. Both guys are learning from each other for sure, but it's not just a clear cut case of Gunni improving Conor on the ground and vice versa for striking, it's more of a back and forth influencing in all areas IMO.
