With no fights on the horizon, Conor McGregor recently took a
moment to reflect on his triumphant return to the Octagon this past
McGregor made short work of Donald Cerrone in the UFC 246 headliner
on Jan. 18, ending the contest just 40 seconds after it began. The
Irish superstar initially stunned his opponent with a series of
shoulder strikes from the clinch before clipping Cerrone with a
head kick. From there, McGregor overwhelmed “Cowboy” with punches
near the fence for his first UFC triumph since November 2016.
“Lately atop my striking, I’ve been striking them where they
believe they can’t be struck also. And with shots they don’t
understand to be shots,” McGregor wrote on Instagram. 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.
“That will be all kids now take down your notes and your homework
tonight is… enter a cold bath. As cold as it possibly is, you do
not need ice,” he continued. “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 yourself 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.”
