    What makes Conor McGregor so dominant? I believe it’s a blend of genetics,
    intelligence, work-ethic, bravado…….but ALSO his incredible symbiosis
    of traditional technique with an innovative approach to the future of the
    fight game. Enjoy, ossu!
    “The takeover, the break’s over, (forever)
    God Mc, (“The Notorious”, Conor McGregor)
    (145) soldiers you ain’t ready for war
    (McGregor’s) too strong for y’all
    It’s like bringin a knife to a gunfight, pen to a test
    Your chest in the line of fire with your thin-ass vest” Jay-Z (paraphrased)

    Hey, Top YouTube Fans…I need to make a decision on my next breakdown,
    because I have severe ADHD and have about 5 I’m messing with. Jon Jones,
    Cormier, Robbie Lawler, Rumble Johnson, Mighty Mouse, Rory Mc, or a
    compilation of advanced traditional martial arts techniques applications in
    MMA.

    Absolutely amazing analysis! Thank you so much for sharing this gem. I
    believe the next step in the evolution of MMA is led by Conor. In a few
    years time, all the fighters will incorporate these rarely seen kicks and
    wider stances as part of their game. I’m curious to see how these stances
    do when it comes to leg kicks, especially the traditional Thai kicks from
    Aldo, which are thrown with great setups from boxing combinations to
    disguise themselves. Thank you again for making this and it was nice to see
    old boxing footage incorporated into this.

    Excellent analysis. Clearly shows many of the aspects of Conor’s striking
    game. You can imagine how hard it is for an opponent to prepare for him. If
    Conor shores up the BJJ and wrestling aspect of MMA he will be completely
    unstoppable.

    Brendan, have you looked back at his older fights aswell? Personally i
    find his biggest strengths 1) never stops learning 2) what he learns he
    seems to know how to apply best when he steps into the ring. I saw the two
    fights he lost, those were rookie mistakes and a lack of experience and
    technic. His fights 2 years later are completely different and so much more
    technical in various areas. He has his trademarks, thats for sure, but
    really knows how to apply them well and at the right moments.

  9. Dork Born says:

    He doesn’t land a lot of his kicks but they seem to have a significant
    psychological impact on his opponents. They seem to want to tighten up and
    close the gap leaving them exposed to punches. Everytime they back up to
    dodge the hands, out come the wild kicks again.

  10. Nautilus1972 says:

    I’m worried that Conor’s fondness for high spinning kicks will leave him
    open to a footsweep or an opportune rush from an opponent who is waiting
    for it. He opens himself up a lot unnecessarily.

    3 thumbs in da ground? Was dat hatche is goin to hatche? Caralho……he’s
    like da Irish he-enatchment of St. Patch Slic Ric…..

    Conner still has a long way to go before he achieves Anderson Sylva’s
    fluidity of movement.. perhaps Conner isn’t looking for it…one thing is
    becoming more and more obvious…the guy moves like a. Wolverine…never
    really sure if he ducking to avoid a foreseeable punch or if he’s winding
    up for one…nice mental gymnastics with his opponents as well…

    Great breakdown. Which song is the prelast when it says – is he the future
    of mma? thx

  14. ObaidT90 says:

    glad theres an intelligent mind out there, i made the prince comparison on
    the southpaw and leaping punches along with all the similarities of the two
    and all these mma experts couldn’t fathom it…(probably cause theyre all
    new fans, and don’t know shit about actual combat) nice work.

    Capoeira style hahaha he doesn’t even know what hes commentating 

  16. Tubularm8 says:

    Nice analysis video, keep up the good work. That bolo punch is really nice!
    Yeah I think Conor is the future of mma, everyone is def taking notice and
    are already copying him!

    Conor has a great style. it’s definitely different from the norm. I like
    the way he mixes up his kicks, punches and flamboyant moves, it looks great
    and is effective if it lands. Watching the Aldo vs Mendes fight, I’m not
    sure he is quite ready for them, perhaps in another one or two fights but
    he is definitely a threat to anybody. I think as this stage, he isn’t all
    ‘hype’, he has clearly proven his hype to some degree by knocking out good
    fighters and doing it easily, he is a QUALITY fighter and that cannot be
    argued. Now it’s time to see if he is championship material and I hope he
    is because his presence in a top spot would do nothing but good things for
    MMA, especially for its growth in Europe.

    Great video anyway, Brendan.

    I think another of Conor’s assets is that he has the poise and balance of
    a gymnast. The way so quickly regains composure and balance after those
    huge spinning kicks is crazy. Doesn’t load up on the kicks either, uses his
    body like a cantilever and they just come out of nowhere. The guy is
    something special.

    Enjoyed the breakdown very much bud. Thank you.

    The man is a genius!

  21. Robert Zhang says:

    I was told by my sanshou couch that, especially for a right handed person,
    your left side has the potential to hit at least 1.5 times harder than your
    right side. I’ve been training my left side…

  22. wardagainstuber says:

    Definitely along the lines of genki sudo and such. Quite possibly even
    more!

    athlete.

    Beautiful analysis, I’ve been doing martial arts centered around mma for
    about five years now but this is still a real eye opener. Keep it up, I
    will subscribe and recommend.
