    To be fair, a broken nose is really, really annoying.

    I think they're illegal in Canada. Probably why the UFC never goes there.

    That and the roundhouse toe kick to the jaw. Wouldn't recommend it though, could seriously fuck up your toes.

    Usman was shoulder striking Woodley, so not new Jorge taking out Askren with flying knee not new. Seems like Conor been watching fighters in his time away trying to add to his thin toolbox...

    You couldn’t tell it was a fight by cowboys reaction to them. Just like Chael Cowboy just stood there and took them.

    Conor deserves full credit for what he did to Cerrone, but against Khabib, Usman, Colby, or a Cerrone who didn't announce he "wants to test Conor's stand-up", he would have been taken down after that first huge swing and miss with the left hand.

    Cerrone decided to clinch instead of drop down for a double-leg and the rest is history. Against those other guys this fight goes very differently.

    I'm a Conor fan in the cage (he's a douche outside of it) but while his striking is among the most powerful at any weight he fights at, his defensive awareness is probably still severely lacking, based on what I saw in the opening 5 seconds LOL.

    I think he should be considered the favourite against any fighter from FW to WW who generally doesn't wrestle, and the underdog against any fighter at LW or WW that has elite wrestling and chooses to use it (we've seen him overcome that deficit at FW simply due to being stronger than any FW).

    He didn't invent it, but he did just use it the best it's been used to date.

    Same as hyping fights by trolling your opponent. Not his creation but he has mastered it.

    Jones trips/throws from the clinch are just lovely to watch
