    Does he just not train this anymore? It was a good way to set people off balance and set up his combos.

    What the hell Conor?

    that snap kick won't work on Poirier because he's a southpaw.

    This, if anyone knew about martial arts, they will know that certain techniques wont work against certain styles.

    Unfortunately Conor fans think its simple, Conor enters to Notorious soundtrack, dances around like a leprechaun high on lucky charms for a couple minutes, darting in and out, mocking his opponents attempts by nodding his, knocking his opponent down a couple times before going back for the break to grab a breath, then come back out in the second and beat him.

    Unfortunately this only works on midgets, Conor has never done this to someone bigger than him

    Who gives a fuck he didn't use this kick in the fight, that's not why he lost.

    Bingo, he didn't use it on Nate either.

    It's a fantastic tool against orthodox fighters who he has a good reach advantage on.

    Give it up. He was never that good. There's a reason he avoided rematches unless he had everything to gain. His mental warfare also got old. Guys weren't falling for it no more. Including fights where he didn't need it like the Cowboy fight. LW is also super competitive and is constantly evolving. Clown was never gonna be champ or earn a title shot at 155.
