    I feel like thats what dc lacks and he should implement these tricks if he ever faces jon again. Punches to the thigh, to the midsection etc.

    As much as I would like to entertain the thought that the thigh punch was the mastermind move here,
    I imagine Rockhold could've fallen for that 3 punch combo (two baiting right hand jabs and then a hard left) even without the thigh punch set up.

    While it seemed Luke was confused by the thigh punch when it landed, it seemed he had "reset" himself and his stance before the combo.

    But then again, what do I know. Maybe the thigh punch was something that made Rockhold drop his regular high guard just a little bit, in aniticipation of other weird techniques, and that little bit was the difference that allowed him to be hit with a hard punch.

    Hollyfield used to do this when the ref was out of position to take away the power from his opponents punches.

    As others have mentioned itt, Benson and Anderson have done that long ago, I think Benson used to try to utilize it more in more fights.

    Yoel actually threw a hammerfist to Luke’s leg earlier in the fight too lol. Yoel’s striking was on point that night, his defense was really good too. Luke was able to land and his offensive boxing looked good, but his defense was piss poor with him moving back in a straight line with his head up.

    I love the fact that the blood on Luke's lips/face kind of look like smeared lipstick

    Yep. They even commented on the hammer first like it was comical if I'm not mistaken. Good catch by the TS..

    BRO can you not see how you expose your chin head and face by reaching all the way down to your opponents thigh? a feint is different because its low risk, i don't expose myself to multiple counters...

    THIS IS DAY ONE SHIT CMON MAN

    I honestly think it was just coincidence that the knockout came shortly after the punch to the thigh. You saw Luke look down for a split second like WTF, but then he was reset and ready to go again. The double jab prior to the overhand left was the far more important part of that setup. That's what allowed Romero to both close the distance and hide the left by distracting with the jab.
