    Conor learned from the GOAT it seems. Greats recognize greats is what they say

    Conor was generating more force, Jones was using it to keep Rashad's focus away from the trip, whilst Conor was using it to damage.

    Cowboy a damn casual.

    Here comes the moron argument: "but we never saw a shoulder strike broke someone's nose". Well, here is my answer: I never saw a nose so fragile before! Just because it did more damage than usual doesn't make it some sort of an unicorn technique never utilized or seen before.

    Jones may have invented it, but Conor perfected it.

    Shame that he's so pillow fisted, even on roids.

    Could be the strongest guy in the clinch ever. Did well against DC there as well.

    Lots of roiders out there. They don't do that well against Shad, DC, etc

    Considering this is his 5th fight in 12 months and his nose had just been broken 7 months ago; yes, his nose probably is pretty fragile.

    Either way, Conor wasn't using them as a distraction/annoyance, as others have. These were thrown to cause damage.

    That was clearly something he trained to defend against Cerrone's clinch.
