    I didn't mean the tap out was early in the fight though, I meant how quick he was to tap once that arm went around his throat, he shit himself whereas fighters such as Bisping etc basically would prefer to go out like a warrior and get choked to sleep instead of tapping instantly. For Conor, who loves to spout how much of a real man he is, it was a complete humiliation from an outsider's point of view.

    Poirier held the belt by beating Max Holloway when he was thought to be unbeatable. Hardly meh.

    He meant to do it, he saw the opportunity and took it. Its about adapting and catching your opponent off guard. Even Cowboy said he wasn't expecting it.

    From Connor himself.

    ”I’ve been banging people with the shoulder for a while now,” he explained to BT Sport after the fight. “I caught him off guard. I knew because he kind of froze. When I hit the first one I kind of felt like it was a good connection. Yeah, it’s a good shot of mine.”

    He elaborated further during the UFC 246 post-fight press conference.

    ”They’ll have to say now — they already say, ‘Oh he’s just got a left hand,’” McGregor said. “They’ll have to say I’ve just got a left shoulder. A left hand and a left shoulder. The so-called experts of the game when they breaking down me skill set and saying I’m just a fighter with a left hand. Which is highly disrespectful and uneducated and you’d be surprised that so many of the supposedly knowledgeable people be claiming it as that.

    “It’s a good shot in the clinch,” he continued. “You can really catch a man. I knew I caught him with the first one off guard and then I caught one or two more and when we separated the eye and the nose was busted. It’s a good shot. I’ve utilized that many a times in the gym.”


    Not sure how much MMA you have watched before

    Not a fan off MMA, I understand what your saying with the clinch and shoulder,
    it’s a reaction but what is im saying his game plan wasn’t to shoulder him and his lucky he pulled it off.

    So what he did to Aldo and Alvarez was lucky also? Cerrone just isn't that good. There are levels to this shit.

    Conner is a top 20 p4p fighter. Cowboy is way below him.

    Conner is slowing down if he thought fergo yesterday he would not win.

    I disagree. I would favour Conor in a fight against Tony. Conor is bigger, stronger and has better standup than Tony. Tony is a smaller Nate Diaz.

    What a strange comment
    Can you explain it,
    Why would Connor need to lose fights?
