Truly a ting of beauty.
He likes training in the Kitchen
He gets tagged in every fight pretty much he just has a good chin. His head movement look good in training but not so much in the cage.
That head movement
and it wasn't very good in the first Nate fight. Just sayin'. I think that was a real factor. His defensive movement was really lacking in that fight and I think people don't wanna admit Conor can do waybetter
Everyone gets tagged in pretty much every fight?...
I thought it was actually very nice in the first round. He slipped literally every punch Nate threw and was only caught with Nate's check hook/slap.
That's true the thread starter was talking about his head movement saying it was great when it's average. Cruz and Mighty Mouse have great head movement.
I've seen the fight at least a handful of times and will again before Saturday. I just remember him fighting very confidently and doing a lot of marching forward, careless on defense. I think if he puts a real emphasis on defense in this fight and is more picky on offense, it's a tough night for nate
His head movement and footwork is great for the first couple of minutes of his fights, it breaks down quickly though.
Oh how they love posting this gif, the haters, cause sherdog is riding the Conor hate wave. Just watch after the fight when they're all on his nuts again.
I see stiffness in your gramm-ah
Conor has a bad habit of relying on his chin and abandoning defence when he believes his opponents cannot hurt him. He did it in the Mendes fight and that (more than fatigue) was what saw him caught in the Diaz fight.
So long as he keeps defence at the forefront of his mind he will beat Diaz, so I hope he has learned his lesson - anyone can hurt you if they catch you clean, and Diaz put Conor on queer street with some very clean straights.
If Conor wins, it will be this:
Der will be permanent stiffness in the 310 lb manlet sherdog hater division
I've watched boxing for 20 years and that is the best bit of head movement I've ever seen (no bias).
Nate will be punching dead space.
Throwing combinations and hitting pads does not reflect or show good head movement or the ability to use angles. This type of rhythm is displayed during sparring not so much hitting the pads dictated by the guy holding as well as a series of understood and rehearsed punch combinations with movement
You practice this combination 50 times or more anybody with decent coordination will display perfect head movement once it's down and learned....I can say this much these guys have great rhythm and perfect timing down as far as how they are pairing up....that's all it does....it does not reflect Good head movement
he showed some really good head movement here:
against guys at 145 he has a great chin
Cruz has vastly overrated head movement. Mighty Mouse and Ross Pearson are best in UFC IMO in that single category
