    The way he was crawling around the cage right after he walked in, i was watching with some casual mma fans who were saying "holy shit this guy is like a caged animal". The crazy, unorthodox, and ridiculously fluid ways that he moves throughout the fight are very innovative and impressive. Rory Mac has said it and I think he is right, Conor is on the cutting edge of new techniques and overall efficiency and innovation in the way the body can move, that other fighters will start implementing into their games.

    Ps. I dont have any gifs, but if you were watching, you know what im talking about.

    Im not saying hes never gonna lose but his obsession with movement and overall approach to the game is definitely something new and effective.

    "...overall efficiency and innovation..."

    I agree, completely. I doubt we will ever see him even come close to gassing as a result of the efficient nature of his movements. There is no wasted energy to be seen, it is gorgeous.

    sure the guy has skill, but lets not pretend that some of the hype isnt manufactured and protected in the interest of money for the UFC.

    i guess i shouldnt have used "everyone" so literally. guys who are "on the cutting edge" are only there until they get exposed. sure once in a while, someone finds a style that works well for them, like anderson, who can be considered "on the cutting edge", and we can argue if hes truly been exposed or not. i think he has, although i dont think everyone has the tools to beat him, even if they know how.

    Tyson isn't Irish. He's an English Gypsy (you seen the film Snatch?)

    He was born in Manchester

    And nobody likes Tyson Fury. English or Irish

    Your inability to see reality is an indication of your ignorance, nothing more.
