Anyone watch UFC 246?

McGregor returns and most everyone thought the fight would've gone longer than it did, with many people expecting cowboy to pull off a win because of his huge amount of experience.

McGregor instead stopped Cowboy 40 seconds into the match, he did some sort of weird shoulder punch I have never seen used very effectively. I mean hell he broke cowboys nose got him with a headkick and it was game over.

Great fights on the card, enjoyed this one, shame
The main card didn’t last long

Can’t believe some morons are saying it was staged, no clue at all

They would have to be morons to think that. You should've seen cowboy, his nose was completely smashed and his left eye swollen from those shoulder punches and he got rocked by that kick.

Still not a McNuggets fan, I think the whole lead up to the fight was manufactured. In his post fight he started running his mouth again.

Cerrone paid for his slow start tendency.

Holm fight was really good though.

Seen the fight in the linked vid. Cowboy I think last fight I saw or he had, is out. He should have retired then. But he probably wont. Cant say it was supper impressive, but those shoulder punches, used to be more common in the older UFCs, back when they had no gloves even lots more people use to do shoulder bumps.

Got to give it to Macgregor, that his head and heart are still in the game, and hes getting better. But if he fought Kabib again, he still would get mauled all over again.

Even if he fought diaz again, I think I would give the edge out to Macgreagor this time around for the win in that fight.

thank you. hell of a lot more entertaining than boxing. Rather watch a 40 second match than a 12 round sockem boppers match.

What's next? Connor going to fight Liddel? That fight shouldn't have happened and should hurt Connors legacy, not help. Cerrone was defenseless the entire 40 seconds, I can see why some think it was fixed. Connor should have to fight loser of Khabib V Ferguson before getting the title shot.

Ah, I missed this fight. That right there is the handy shoulder strike. It's an old martial arts move that isn't taught a lot in thee states, because it can really mess a person up as shown in that fight, and you could end up with a broken clavicle if done improperly.

I know it's taught by some in Ninpo, but I've seen it used occasionally in TKD, JKD, BJJ, and rarely in BKJ. It can be hard to pull off if someones got a good hold on you, but if you can break the hold enough to ram your shoulder up into their face it can usually lead to a bit more freedom.

Musashi once said something along the lines of "Strike your enemy with your shoulder. Strike them until they are dead."

It can also be used to create distance for a follow up strike. As in shoulder ramming an enemy and then following that up with a blade.

Connor locked up Cowboys left arm(kinda looked fishy like Connor was taking the lead in a wee dance) pulling him down and away....then he exploded up as he let go and Cowboys own momentum and power were used against him within the confines of a six inch strike that had an entire body behind it.....remember a 25 lb bowling ball is launched straight up pulling that shoulder.....its an explosive move.

Yeah, it's a damn good move. I'm surprised it hasn't been used more often, and I'd be even more surprised if I don't hear of more fighters using this after this bout.

Well sure. If they saw it coming. Doesn't detract from the fact that it's a good move to use.

I'm not saying it isn't possible the fight was fixed or not. I never said anything of the sort. I made a statement about the strike itself, but if we're going to go down this route. I honestly don't care if the fight was fixed or not. I had no stake in it.

As someone who used to fight I know that the first moments of a fight can be very important. If the Cowboy dude truly wasn't expected a shoulder stike he may have gotten caught in a mental moment of "WTF?", got dazed and McGregor took advantage of it.

Which is what fighting is all about. Element of surprise, and taking advantage of momentary lack of concentration. Lots of fights end in less than one minute, and in my experience most of these publicized fights are actually drawn out for monetary reasons.
