WHY didn’t Cowboy take the double when Conor telegraphed his initial Left Hand???

    I picked Conor to win this fight, but being a longtime connoisseur of this sport I’m fully aware of Cowboys abilities and I’ve seen him take that shot DOZENS of times...

    So again I ask WHY Cowboy hit a perfect level change and opted for a high clinch when Conor rushed him out the gate and overextended with that left hand???

    Was Cowboy “incentivized” not to grapple or fight a certain way? Even when he was in trouble he never once attempted a grappling exchange.

    He also did nothing when in the clinch and was eating the "shoulder shots". He did nothing in general except just showing up to the fight.

    He wanted to give the fans the 4 second fight they dreamed of and blow the roof off the place

    Cowboy was happy to lose

    Wow what a pathetic shit show that was. Whole main card was horrendous. Big ups to the Russian and the Mullet.

    Why didn't he block the fuckin' high kick (as a Muay Thai guy)? He put his hands down to block a body kick instead of blocking the high kick and then countering.

    Why didn't he throw an elbow out of the clinch when he had it clear as day?

    He's been limping all week. He came into the fight with a bum leg. Can't shoot takedowns with 1 leg. He would have pulled out due to injury for any other fight but this was red panty night.

    Him not hitting this takedown is the main thing that gets me a touch suspicious on this fight. I know he copped the thigh to the head, but that takedown has been Cerrone's bread and butter.

    9/10 times Cowboy drops down, wraps the legs and takes it to the ground. This is the most suspicious thing in the fight for me.

    Because cowboy loses all fight IQ and awareness when he's in a big fight.

    Why did you feel the need to start another thread when there’s 20 other threads with the exact same title?

    The fight was not fixed

    Cowboy is just a shell of himself and it was obvious from the presser

    Khabib Bless
