Ever since Corley he usually with use the high guard in walking down a lefty. Hell after Judah caught him and put him down he left the shoulder roll too. He used the shoulder outside with Ortiz, but on the inside he had his high guard, which is why Ortiz hit him right on the chin when he did his flying headbutt.
It is just my opniion, but I think he is better on the inside with lefties with his shoulder roll than Floyd was. I think he is a more dedicated body puncher too, two different styles from the same base though.
