    Nice catch. Definitely looks tricky as hell.

    This is why strong wrestlers have an insane advantage in the standup if they get their stand up to a decent level.

    GSP was the master of mixing up this strikes (mainly jab and superman punch) and takedowns.
    That is the blueprint for all wrestlers to copy and improve upon if possible.

    Khabib also does his fake duck under into overhead very nicely. the one he caught Connor with.

    Mixing it up and keeping your opponent guessing is the key to success for strong grapplers.

    It's because he's used to being a Hooker not a Hookee.

    that's also a standard boxing setup. it's cool how they use it to feint takedowns too.

    Can you imagine, hitting someone with the hardest punch you'll ever land, ever, the very prime of your life, everything behind it,

    And he doesn't even go down....

    Conor ALPHA'd the fuck out of Khabib there,

    Chandler is a straight up savage when he has someone hurt.

    It’s a smart and very affective setup.

    Should've seen it coming. Chandler does a lot of body head combinations. He uses the body shot to close distance without walking into a punch. That's why he changes levels. That's why Hooker should've spammed his knees that he used to be good at instead of back peddle - calf kick - reset - repeat.

    This is why people thinking that mma doesn't need high level boxing will miss details like this. It's a simple combo.

    Masvidal ended up defending that takedown which was pretty impressive considering how free Usman's entry was

    The punch you don't see coming hurt the most.

    hooker wasn't wearing his glasses.

    or maybe distracted by rogan screaming he is hurt, before he was hurt

    I think it was also the speed of the punch, Chandler threw that hook very tight and quick. The body shot was from a mile away, It didn’t seem like he would be able to land that hook without reaching. Chandler closes the distance effortlessly

    I've seen you post this retarded take before, and it doesn't go down any better the more you do it.
