Video: Conor McGregor & Ido Portal – This Is Movement

Conor McGregor has always been an athlete with a vested interest in the mechanics of the human body and, in renowned movement coach Ido Portal, the UFC lightweight champion seems to have found something of a kindred spirit.

Since McGregor first utilised the training methods of Portal, the results have been self-evident. In his showing against Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 last November, arguably the finest performance of the Dubliner’s career thus far, McGregor’s footwork and movement in the octagon meant that Alvarez was constantly out of range when on the attack — which left the Philly native primed for McGregor’s concussive counter-striking game.

In a brand new video for The Mac Life, we had some cameras present at a recent training session between McGregor, Portal, Dillon Danis and others and you can watch the footage below.
