    Donald Cerrone took a beating against Conor McGregor this past Saturday, suffering a broken nose and ‘mild’ orbital fracture in the UFC 246 main event at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena, per the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).

    Cerrone, who suffered his third straight TKO/KO at UFC 246, could be medically suspended for up to six months unless cleared by a maxillofacial surgeon. The UFC veteran also suffered facial fractures in his knockout loss to Justin Gaethje at UFC Fight Night 158.

    According to MMA Fighting, Cerrone’s manager, Josh Jones, says ‘Cowboy’ suffered no serious damage to his brain at UFC 246, as his CT scan came back negative.

    Take a look at the full list of UFC…

    Holy shit that's a lot of damage in 30 seconds, when only 3-4 punches really landed. Majority of it done by shoulder strikes. Fucking crazy.

    This could be a great thread for the Conor doubters to apologize. You wanna start things off @JonJonesBeard@JonJonesBeard ?

    I think the orbital may have come on the initial knee...that jarred the hell out of cowboys head.

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O0c2_HFw6o8&feature=emb_title

    4:40 mark you see don slip the left and eat a knee to left cheek
    never seemed right after that

    the standing knee got him good also, the shoulder strikes got him good also...these were all on right cheek mostly

    orbital fracture on right or left side?

    Cowboy was on a 2 fight losing streak (both knockout losses) and has been ko'd 4 times in the last 3 years before the Conor fight.

    How much of a pat on the back do you think he deserves?

    Have you not read any of my posts since the fight? It's not very becoming of admin's to be trolling users.

    He threw a series of strikes he's never used before. He used his time off to really improve and round out his striking game. He absolutely deserves recognition for that.

    It should be a permanent suspension. Guy has been KOd 5 times in the last 3 years on top of all the massive amounts of damage he has sustained over his career.

    Someone is going to need to save this guy from himself. There's no reason to wait.

    he tried the straight left to knee against Khabib but Khabib ate it and took him down I tink
    but those shoulder strikes were totally new and unexpected...I don't think anybody expected him to embrace a clinch at all

    props to conor

    I thought I had quoted you previously in one of my statement. Perhaps I am mistaken, I apologize.

    Not that I recall. Just some expected banter after a difference in picks.

    Nah, man. I've always said Kavanagh is one of the best coaches in MMA and they came in with a gameplan no one saw coming. Conor looked great, hats off to the both of them.

    Two audible cracks on shoulder strike 3 and 4. Thought it may have been his nose snapping.

    His striking wasn't what he needed to work on.

    looks like the swelling is on donald's left cheekbone
    probably the orbital fracture

    question is was it the opening flying knee or did one of those shoulders slip across to dons left cheekbone

    Let's calm down on 'one of the best coaches in MMA'. He has worked with a total of one champion fighter, who basically runs his own camps anyway.

    If Edmen Shahbayzen keeps rising, I would be comfortable in declaring Edmond Taverdyan a better coach.

    Which part are you saying no to. The part that is a fact? Or the part that Kavanaugh himself admits?

    Conor doesn't run his own camps.

    So because of those impressive shoulder strikes, you think he's ready to stuff takedowns from Khabib or Usman?
