    Thompson is a great fighter but it makes you wonder two things, Josh isnt a huge LW (although bigger than Conor) and he isnt a KO puncher, granted that was a headkick and nate kinda leaned into it.

    So we can all agree Conor is more powerful and a better striker than Josh but can he pull something like that off?

    He's gonna try that spinning shit that never lands again. Four times.

    Nate ate that head kick like a fucking champ.

    Conor is telegraphing his kicks. So no.

    Josh Thompson is a better striker than Conors.

    This is what happens when you fight normal sized adults.

    Josh Thompson actually still has a dent on his shin after that kick...

    Of course he's capable of landing it, highly unlikely but possible.

    This is just like those threads that post gifs of RDA low kicking Diaz and saying that's all Conor has to do to win.

    It takes longer than 5 months (unless that is solely what Conor is working on) to develop a useable high or low round kick that is thrown with power, in competition, while another man is punching you in the face.

    Could he? Of course. The man has dynamite in his hands. But will he? Who knows. But Nate has to be the favorite in this one.

    If he can get Nate to follow him and react to low kicks then yes and he is capable of doing it but Nate has got way to fuck up Connors night as well.
