    I have a theory that Conor McIrish has been training the shoulder pop for quite some time now.
    Even before the Khabib fight.

    He was actually preparing that move for Mayweather, but Cerrone became the first target that had a 100% success rate.

    What would happen if Conor gave Floyd a broken nose from a shoulder pop while clinching with him in the 3rd round?

    Is this a theory?

    Are you really that dumb? You can't hit with shoulders in box, he would had been disqualified.

    Probably a little be less of a suing than kicking Floyd

    Nobody who shows up to win is getting rocked by shoulder shots. Ortiz threw a full headbutt at Mayweather and got KO'd for his effort.

    You have a theory that Conor has been training to disqualify himself?

    OK.

    then Floyd would have finished him in the 3rd... about 3.50 seconds after noticing his nose is broken

    I think he was training axe kicks and 12-6 elbows for Maywether but he didn't have a chance to use them in the fight

    Why because it has a different rule set than MMA?
    Oh, well, why don't they allow tackling in basketball then? Does that make it a "flawed sport"?

    Uh no. It makes more sense that its for Khabib when they clintch. Since using the knee would put him of balance and stuff

    And no elbows or forearms either! That's why Mayweather has 3 DQ losses in boxing.

    You're right. Just a little elbow push to Mosley's face and nose. No foul as it is not a strike.

    Conor was just pushing Cerrone's face and nose with his shoulder as well.

    There aren't many guys who are as aware as Floyd is in the ring. He's good at sneaking this stuff in when the ref is on the other side (he'll throw shots to the thigh, too, or he'll cover your mouth in the clinch). But he's been warned for that kind of behavior before; he's just smart enough not to do anything egregious that warrants an immediate point deduction.

    A theorized question, if you will.
