Like i said, i'm a big Cowboy Cerrone fan but the dude is not gonna beat Connor and won't be able to take Connor's left hand to the body or face the way Gaethje can. The only way Cowboy beats him is if he can get Connor to the ground and get his back and neck but people underestimate Connor's take down defense just like people did with Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
100% co-sign this. I can't see Cowboy lasting long enough for Conor to gas, so he'd need a quick takedown and some grinding to win. I think Conor and JJ have a similar thing where it's possible to get in on their hips but even when they get taken down, they're great at popping right back up. Like Conor vs Siver and JJ vs Andrade. JJ is especially great, it's really a slept on aspect of her game how she can be such an aggressive striker but super difficult to take down.
Yes to all this. Joanna by the way looked absolutely great at the new weight against Waterson and didn't look like she lost any of her speed at all. She's so damn dangerous on her feet and has great take down defense and as you said always gets right back up very quick if she does get taken down and that stuff will mess with the opponents head.
By the way, someone on here said that N.Diaz is out of the BMF (Bad Mother F-er) fight against Masvidal and that L.Edwards is in but i'm still seeing that it's not a done deal yet that Nate is out and actually looks more like he's still gonna be in that fight then it looks like he'll be out.
