    Thanks Conor. "Nobody can take that left hand shot". I've heard it from at least 3 fights tonight. It's like any southpaw has "that left hand". It's the exact same as a straight right. Why is everyone sticking on this phrasing?

    Maybe Rogan blowing his load every time something lands has stuck with people.

    Seems a little harsh, but I do agree he belongs nowhere near the commentary booth.

    I do believe that Left Hands have been lobbying for their own term ever since boxing combos were granted the title of 'Punches In Bunches'.
