    [​IMG]I was just thinking how Tony is always getting hit alot before his wins. When he beats Conor is he ever gonna clean up his style ? Like will we ever see Tony have good defense ? How long can he be champion when hes taking shots ? Should he shore up his defense ? When you look at champions like Joanna and Holloway they have very good foot work and defense they dont take to much shots. Will Tony ever become like this ? PS Tony is a badass im just wondering will he clean up his fight style when he becomes champion.

    would rather watch tony lose than see his style die and go to mma heaven with WEC Aldo. that being said he can sharpen his defense and still fight crazy.

    If he beats Conor he won't need to change anything.

    I think to have a long title reign he will need to. He cant be champion for long when hes getting in wars like he did with Barboza, Lee, and Lando.

    also, if he doesn't clean up his defense, I predict after 2018 he will noticeably decline. I hope i'm wrong/never have to find out either way. Chin down hands up Tony!

    Thats true. Conor will drop him, its just a matter of if he survives long enough to take him into deep waters

    He's never been KOed; once he is, he'll try and clean up his defense. Hopefully it won't be too late for his chin.

    He has shown decent defense when he wants to. He blocked most of the huge head shots that Barboza threw at him.

    I think he can tighten it up if he chooses.

    If Tony becomes champ with his current style, doesn't that prove it doesn't need to be "cleaned up"?

    The point is it not gonna work out for long and i dont see Tony having a long title reign the way he fights. He needs some more clean performance and to focus on defense. Noone have ever had more than 3 title defense in the LW division. Its a tough division to be champion in. Will see maybe he will prove me wrong.

    No, it doesn´t. Like Silva playing with his hands down. He got caught eventually.
