In an new Instagram post Conor McGregor has spoken out to explain the improvements to his striking technique that helped him secure a stunningly swift win over Donald Cerrone earlier this year.
“Lately atop my striking, I’ve been striking them where they believe they can’t be struck also,” McGregor wrote. “And with shots they don’t understand to be shots. Look at the range of limbs and bone joints I strike with here alone. The hip. The bone of the clavicle, the infamous collar bone! The knee. The foot. The fist (both). A lovely array.”
McGregor then went on to give up-and-coming MMA kids some tongue-in-cheek advice.
“That will be all kids now take down your notes and your homework tonight is… enter a cold bath,” McGregor wrote. “As cold as it possibly is, you do not need ice. Get in the water and then dip your head under fully and until you need to come up for air. Repeat this over and over until you can stay under for 2 minutes fully. Then Get out. Look at yourself in the mirror, And give your self two full clatters into the teeth. You silly novices, back to bed. Just kidding.
“Respect to all the students of the game. Always remember that if it moves, you are focused on the wrong thing. Stay ready, and most importantly, stay in school.”
