really his only form of defense
Dude can't even stop a pie.
It's about the only real form of defense in MMA. The gloves aren't big enough.
His distance control is his only form of TDD but it's worked for him so far
if it works (which it clearly does), why the fuck does it matter that it's "his only form" of defense (it isn't)?
This is really ignorant as hell. What kind of bullshit do you drink to believe that shit?
hasn't defended a title, so he has NO form of defense, kinda like a kardashians legs, they won't fight to stay closed
Its pretty amazing. He's been able to keep his distance defending belts and fighting.
Semi Cardio Mendes laughs at Connies "distance management"
Having great distance control is a mark of a great striker/high IQ striker Distance control is actually more of a natural skill.
Conor's distance control separates him from most MMA fighters. That little slip just to barely get out of the way of a strike then counter is a natural gift that most fighters cant learn.
imo is because he can't take punches.
Conor never got hit with a good flush shot from someone with decent power. Diaz has always been pillowfisted, so much that probably rocked Conor only because Conor was gassed.
But imo he trained a lot and develop great distance control, and likes to fight smaller guys to maximize the usage of his reach so he's not likely to eat a flush bomb.
Not hating, the "best chins" are the ones that don't get hit. even though i think chin is a myth. Also, he might be in trouble if he miscalculates how far/close he really is from his opponent, it will be similar to taking a punch that you don't see, he'll see it but will be to close to react in time to avoid it.
mendez could've won that fight so easy if he just stayd calm wiht otp ocontrol and wore him out. he had it and dove for that guillotine like an idiot.
Distance control is so last year.
Damage control, now that's a thing this year
Mendes may be laughing but both he and Aldo were crying.
How about dodging punches, does that not classify as defense?
Also, like somone already posted.
The key to beat that is speed and good movement. Be quick moving in and out and side to side so even if he's waiting you to lead, he doesn't catch you with the counter. be quick throwing every punch and moving, will make him occupied with slowing you down before he can stay at bay punching manlets like he loves to do.
Mendes was doing a good job.
1 title stripped the day after
Other one was gifted and still not defended
Yeah because the only way to have defense in MMA is distance control lol
Yeah it was a desperation guillotine... his cardio was done by the second round.
Explosive fighters like Mendes rely on FULL training camps for their bodies to peak and be able to maintain over extended periods of time. Ie recovery, steady heart rate, controlled breathing, etc.
