    In virtually all McGregor fights he has that bouncy in and out karate style but with Khabib he was just plodding forward with none of that bouncy stuff, even in the third set where they were striking he was just plodding forward. Where was this shyt?

    Being caught off balance with your center of gravity 3' above the mat is a great way to get taken down.

    The balance is not great with the bouncing shit.
    If your principal strategy is td defence, it's better to be stable on your feet.

    Yes, the Dagestan gangsters were threatening his family as Conor was force fed Fugu fish poison.

    Probably concerned about impending takedown and also being exhausted usually makes you less "bouncy" as you put it. It went to grappling pretty quickly so Conor didn't really have any fresh moments to employ this before tiring.

    It's a three way gangbang between D1, Blanqua, and Dragon Claw to take up the braindead shitposting mantle from NOlogic

    Interesting observation.

    Who else in the LW division would make Conor not do his bouncy shit?

    Kevin Lee? Tony?
