We've seen fighters stagger back to their corners in a daze. That wasn't it.

Whittaker was dropped hard and about to be KOed at the last second of the round by Adesanya. He was in a daze going back to his corner.

Then he came out for the second and it was immediately obvious the fight was lost. He got KOed a couple of minutes later. Gaethje never looked like that. He was laughing at himself on his way back to his corner.

:hat
Agreed.

I think Justin was dropped from being disorientated. He didn't see the shot. His legs looked fine almost immediately and he showed no ill effects the next round. A massive stretch to suggest it was anything other than a small moment of success for a fighter who was otherwise completely outclassed.

You can't know this to be true. You probably don't believe it either.

Justin was hurt but appeared to recover very quickly. I didn't get the sense he was ready to go.
He tecovered becaus eof the break.
No break he gets flattened.
He was also gased at this point in the fight before getting a second wind.
He was controlling the fight but you got the feeling that Tony was always a punch away from winning.

Yep.

On reflection, that fight seems a lot like an MMA version of Barrera-Hamed. Everybody got so carried away with how creative and unpredictable Hamed was, how his attacks were so varied and unorthodox and you couldn't train for him.

Then Barrera got in there and went "Fundamentals exist for a reason. Watch me take you to school all fucking night long with a basic jab, left hook, straight right and clinch tie-up." And he never got sucked into playing Hamed's game, and he beat his ass start to finish like he was Naseem's big brother. :lol:

I love when this happens. I remember watching tarver vs roy jones 3 and when roy started jiving and pulling out all his old tricks (to no avail) i remember thinking 'wow..all the genius in the world cant overcome a high guard and a properly utilised jab'

Haggis' example was better. Roy would have befuddled Tarver like he did everyone else had it taken place 4 years earlier.
