    Conor has the same issue I did when playing EA UFC. Instead of using distance and simply blocking, he tries to sway, slip, dodge, and duck like he's in the matrix. Him ducking right into that right hand shot to the nose was why he was dropped for the very first time. Against a volume puncher like Dustin, you're playing with fire doing that. You will get caught, and he did. He DOES NOT have a chin problem!

    But obviously the finish was a blessing because his calfs were a balloon. The contest was a formality and he'd have taken unnecessary punishment.

    His swaying, dodging, and ducking was more of a Dustin was already putting it to him and Conor doesn't seem to respond well when the opponent is starting to win the standup.

    Sherdog will be a better place, no more posts about Conor flexing in speedos, or all of those homo erotic Conor posts that I dont know if people are trolling.

    Yes, because the punches before that blurred his vision and he went into panic mode wrestling. You can see him laying there like a homeless man and slowly regaining vision.

    It looked like he tried to plant but his right leg was like, "nah" ... Getting punched in the face subsequently didn't help matters
