Agreed.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.
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.
