what he did wrong? he went into this fight with no intentions of finishing.. wall and stall, vertical lay and pray, hugging, whatever you want to call it..
Mir obviously came to strike and hopefully get taken down to where he could work some jitz.. I mean his kicks looked nice, he was light on his feet and was actually using some head movement... punches were still slow but at least he was using angles and had better defense...
Smart and boring game plan by Cormier..
Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.
