He'll have to modify his style to protect himself from the uppercut and that will almost certainly lead to him standing off a bit more and being a bit more careful with lunging in with his shots like he does. He's built his whole career off that though and is fairly one dimensional in that respect so I have doubts about how well he can throw singles punches from range.
And tonight had nothing to do with him thinking he's Terminator. He fought the exact same way in all his previous fights and his defence was pretty tight, just tonight it got exposed against someone with genuine punch variety and power and his chin was found a bit wanting.
