    - getting staggered by shoulder strikes
    - having Conor in a stacked guard yet Cerrone rolled over
    - no strikes thrown by Cerrone

    what else have you seen?

    He bled from his nose but that shouldn’t account for much. The nose is one of the most susceptible organs when it comes to bleeding. You can bleed from your nose without contact (dry air)

    I thought his performance was better on that show about those dudes who used to dig coal.

    I agree that the fights between Velazquez/Ngannou and Ngannou/dos Antos rival that of Cerrone v. McGregor.

    What I do to get a grip on reality is watch Forrest Griffin vs. Stephan Bonnar and recognize hunger v. a quick buck

    Literally zero attempt to defend himself.

    - Conor throws a high kick: Cowboy lowers his arms and stays there waiting to get hit
    - Conor shoulders him 4 times on the clinch: Cowboy just stands there with zero head movement

    This fight was so fake and cringe holy shit

    Pillow-fist McGregor hurt and put away iron-chin never-lost-a-fight Cerrone, definitely a fix

    Conor is short and not known for headkicks. Cerrone is likely more concerned with a liver kick, particularly because he has had problems with liver shots before and is facing a southpaw.
    Cowboy was trying to push McGregor back to the fence. You could see that was his intention immediately. He stuck with it for the first 3 shoulder strikes because it was working - Conor was being pushed backwards towards the cage. He most likely didn't realize he was getting busted up. By the fourth strike McGregor held his ground and exited the clinch.

    People already made up their mind that this fight was fixed before it even started. Any result with Conor winning would have set the tin foil hats in motion.

    What I do know is the head kick Cowboy threw had KO power behind it, and his nose was fucked up. Not a fixed fight.

    The nose is an organ?
