    Composed and uploaded by yours truly.

    After the Floyd Mayweather fight, Conor McGregor completely switched up his style. He went from his wide counter striking karate stance, to a more flat footed squared up boxer.

    I don't see how this style is going to help him. He's trying to use what Floyd did to him. High guard and walk forward I guess.

    What do you folks think about the new footage?

    Conors power just doesn't translate into boxing.

    One random 4 second clip. Bravo. Btw, he did slip three punches and then counter with a 1-2.

    Can't believe I'm going to use this pea-brained slogan, but.... Fake news.

    I think Tomas is talking about his stance and general movement
    Conor’s power was always gonna dip with bigger gloves

    I just don't think that style will translate well for him if he does decide to return. Even in the sparring clips he release a while ago, he doesn't seem as sharp on the feet and he constantly goes for the clinch. The thing that made Conor so special was his ability to manage distance and I'm not sure he has that ability in a squared up style

    This guy you all posting is and olympic wrestling champion, Abdulrashid Sadulaev, he would certainly fukk Connor up looking at his weaknesses in grappling. Not the other way around :D

    This dude hasn't lost a wrestling match since 2013
