    despite some spinning kicks, did it seem like Conor was just swinging for the fences, telegraphing that left?

    He was simply inefficient with his energy.

    Is this about UFC 196? Or some other Conor fight?
    Assuming it is, Conor went the Ronda route. They didn't just want to win, they wanted to exceed some unrealistic expectations. Tried too hard to look good and lost

    He really believed that nobody could take dat left hand shot and Nate frustrated his plans. He better come up with a different strategy for the rematch.

    That's what he does in all his fights. Usually it works, against Nate, it didn't.

    He needs to throw leg kicks before he can land more shots. Nate's cardio is his best weapon against Conor. I think Conor is in trouble, but I'd like to see him get the W.
