    How could someone train day in and day out and still do this? I mean I trained so hard but not at these guys’ level and I wouldn’t even dare expose my chin like this!!! So what’s going on here?

    You don't know what you would and would not do in those isolated events.

    Bader got caught by a lifelong Karate guy who is a precise counter puncher. Aldo tried to start off aggressive but perhaps forgot how Conor has both power and accuracy, to go with the willingness to take a punch in order to land one.

    Adrenaline, stress, agression, the random chaos of free fighting.. How does it work

    The Bader one was after a round and a half of failing to close the distance.

    The Aldo one was a perfectly set trap by McGregor.

    Shit happens in a fight. No matter what training you have if you see something you think may be an opening and go all out for it you very well could be left exposed. You have to be disciplined but we also want guys to attack and go for a kill and in doing that you take on risk.

    I wouldn't get KO'd. Can't get finished if you never fight.

    I guess so, but basic training is protect your chin all the time!

    True, but Conor is known for left hook so why do just that?

    Getting caught is one thing and leaving your chin this wide open is a deadly result

    Yep, I think Bader was frustrated more than anything. Regardless, leading with your face isn't a good look. Especially when Machida karate is at the other end.

    tenor (60).gif This beats both. Hands up, splits his guard, and kicks his face off.
