Both Conor McGregor and head coach John Kavanagh have been outspoken about the changes made to fight preparation this time around, bringing in elite boxers and jiu-jitsu experts as regular training partners.
One component of McGregor’s fight preparation which remains unhindered, is his commitment to movement.
We watch in the video above as movement specialist Ido Portal has reconnected with team McGregor in Las Vegas, to assist in the final days of fight camp.
Understanding where movement originates and how it unravels through the kinetic chain is very beneficial for reaction, prediction and counter-action. Most observe the wrong markers, narrowing the time frame left for response but learning about the nature of motion gives one ample time to execute a reaction. Just like the coal miners of the 19th century used to bring canaries down to the tunnels as an early detection system for gas leaks, the fighter must install good habits of detecting and predicting the future. @thenotoriousmma Conor Mcgregor is a great example of such habits. #ufc202 #conormcgregor #idoportal #movementculture #idoportalmethod
