Originally my impression of the fight was: Conor got exposed and then willed a win in the second round. A few things I noticed on second look. 1. Respect to Conor as always coming out with a spinning back kick very energetic even risky in the beginning. And did a great job of pressuring Mendez the whole time. 2. Mendez actually hit Conor with a few good ones. I forgot he opened up Conors right eye. I know bleeding doesn't necessarily mean great damage but it looked like Conor's head bobbed with that one as well as with other shots. 3. Mendez was good at countering Conor (although he only answered with 1 or 2 hits and was anable to follow up). 4. Mendez used his wrastlin to bully Conor. When a takedown failed, Conor did a great job of defending, but Mendez took advantage of Conor's unbalanced position and dictated the pace. This is when he got most of his best shots on the feet. I remember watching Fedor and DC doing this a lot : Didn't get the takedown? thats' okay use the chaos to follow up with attacks. It really looked like Mendez did a great job even on the feet. If mendez had a longer reach and was able to follow up with some of his counters, and land strong COMBOS, not single shots do any of you feel it is possible would have had a strong chance of winning that fight? Also, Did Mendez expose Conor at all?
