UnderGround Forums YOU ARE FOCUSING ON THE WRONG PUNCH!

The "knock down" looks to me like a combination of Conor's left hand push-pulling paulies head as he holds and hits with the right. If you are looking for something positive regarding Conor's sparring you should be focusing on the straight lead left he landed flush from outside the pocket, that was a good shot. the "knock down" wasn't really much of a knock down is any at all. sort of a hybrid push-pull-hold and hit-pauline is fat and payed for it kind of punch.

I think he connected with the right. Either way he was clearly pushing his head down while holding and hitting. Not a legit knock down in my opinion.

I think it's awesome, it makes Conor look even better.....Conor is literally a once in a lifetime fighter with that type of accuracy.

Conor fan, but I agree. There was some push pull action going on there. And joe Cortez didn't call it a knockdown.

This. And Joe is one of the best ever in addition to being hyper aware because of Conor's learning curve.

Not a knockdown, you can see this in full speed.

However, there is another vid of Conor landing maybe one of the quickest, cleanest left hands he has ever thrown, and it visibly shakes Paulie.

Joe Cortez is treating each sparring session as a real boxing match.

How do u know Joe did not call it a knockdown? Have u seen the rest of footage? Or because Paulie said so?

1. It looked like he waved it off.

2. If he had ruled it a knockdown, they probably would have included that in the clip.

3. Another of McGregor's sparring partners claimed that Joe didn't see the knockdown, which implies that he didn't rule it a knockdown.

No reason to even have a reference in sparring. If Pauly was done after that alleged knock down do you guys think Cortez would hold up conors hand up in victory? It's sparring ffs.

But yeah, he has to land the left, he has a great left that reminds me of an early Pacquiao.  They just know how to land it.
