    Conor is about as brittle as O'malley

    Must be an Irish thing.

    We've seen many fads. front kick to the face, elbows to the face while stuffing TD's against the cage, superman punch, spinning elbow strikes etc. Calf kicks look like they might stick around though.

    After that chito performance you'll see it utilized a lot more now since Dustin followed suite in that performance watched by 10-100x more than who've watched the chito vs o'Malley scrap.

    He changed the game by not knowing how to defend calf kicks?

    Horrible defenses and people kicking games being exploited

    Keep throwing them sum bitches imo, they lead to beautiful KO’s

    Chris Gutierrez have been fucking up people's legs even before Cheeto broke Omalley's leg. I guess fighters are not so different than sherdoggers after all.

    It’s just a Conor nuthugger thing, by their logic he also changed the game on how to get KTFO trying to panic wrestle.

    New metas come around every few years. People will figure out the right defense and counters to calf kicks. The only move that's 100% effective and has shown there's no defense to....is the WMMA head and arm throw.

    These fighter nutritionists should be sacked and replaced. Tony is out here kicking metal poles and these other fragile Nancys are looking like a senior with osteopenia after their fight.

    Calf kicks were being relevant even before the porier fight. People here act like they are impossible to defend.

    They might as well be with some of the front leg heavy stances these guys have which makes it really hard to check them
