No, I don't mean the final blow. I'm talking about before that, at the start of their fight. Crixus swung at him and made a rookie mistake which he would normally not make. It was choreographed in such a way that it made him look like he forgot how to defend himself. Rewatch the scene where they start fighting and tell me what you think.
