    In his post fight, cowboy said his nose got broken by elbows, even though they were shoulder strikes

    This means he was so rocked by the knee, or maybe first shoulder strike that he didnt even know what he was getting hit with

    Explains why he didnt defend them well, or the power shots after

    He was clearly rocked early and out of the fight basically at that point

    I think it was just a slip of the tongue. Meant to say shoulders and said elbows. No need to read more into it than that.

    Or the headkick that moved his jaw across his face muddied his recollection of the event that just transpired

    Conor had little fat or water in his shoulders. Looks like those hard muscles payed out.

    No, I think it is more likely he thought they were elbows, he tried to defend it by holding on tighter to conors arm after he started to get hit by them

    Pretty common for a hurt fighter to get confused like that

    It was a bizarre performance from him. Looked as though he was rocked instantly from what looked like a thigh, not a knee. Then just stood in the clinch and ate 4 shoulder strikes without moving or attempting to disengage (Conor was also wide open for a breakaway elbow). Then backs up, gets rocked yet again by the kick that was a lot of toes, and that’s all she wrote. Literally everything appeared to rock him. Pretty embarrassing for Cowboy.
