Just a few observations of a totally one sided match:
18-21 effective leg kicks probably led to a brutal knockout of Conor
Conor blamed the loss on a lack of fights as he had not fought in a year
Conor looked slow and awkward and was bullied by the #2 ranked Lightweight
Both fighters have lost to Habib yet Habib is probably going to call it quits.
My take on McGregor which I have talked repeatedly about on my shows is that once Habib humiliated him, no one feared Conor anymore–similar to when Tyson was knocked out by Buster. Tonight we saw Poirier just dominate McGregor a reward those who bet the underdog.
