    Rockhold had shown to have poor defense to getting punch but does he have a delusional mindset where he feels he has a solid chin to fight like a Mexican just so the male demographic does not think he is a pretty boy?

    In boxing, yes. I think usually it means a tendency to be content standing and trading. Not sure about the whole hands down thing though.

    Mexican greats in boxing have always been complete fighters but where I think that saying comes from is because Mexicans almost always have huge hearts and chins to absorb punishment if needed

    OP heard Conor talk about Mexican style, and now he thinks that anybody walking forward or standing is doing Mexican style.

    Poor defense. You can't fight with your hands down with no footwork or head movement to protect you unless you have an amazing chin, which Luke just doesn't have.

    It is common place in MMA even at the highest level to for many fighters to lack basic striking defense fundamentals. Great mma strikers typically just have great offense.

    rockhold has an issue with any shot coming from the left. spinning left kick by belfort, left hook from bisping and over hand left from romero.

    every fighter that faces him should train as a southpaw against him and they have a shot at winning.

    More like he tried to check Romero with a right hook but Yoel ducked and answered with an overhand left. He's pretty technical and was doing great until that point, also, Mexican style means being technically aggressive not just coming forward, you must be El Matador, not the bull.

    Well Conor had no clue what "Mexican style" was, and TS certainly doesn't know either
