The Sports Science Team Put Conor McGregor To The Test

Conor McGregor paid a visit to the Sports Science lab recently and after putting him to the test they came to the conclusion that he is “elite compared to the elites”.

“He has exceptional balance, amazing movement, he generates movement in exactly the right places. He’s incredibly fast and very powerful. We don’t see all that in one package, ever.”

Over the years I've watched the UFC develop into the powerhouse it is today, organizations like PRIDE, Strikeforce and WEC rise and fall, and Bellator emerge as a new force on the MMA landscape. Throughout it all I've remained captivated by the sport and I'm excited to cover what comes next here on MMA Insight.
