Portal uses ‘Chaotic Card Drill’ to train McGregor’s reflexes

Video appearance

Portal releases a video of McGregor using the ‘Chaotic Card Drill’ in training with McGregor. McGregor has to hit playing cards that Portal throws towards him.

Using the chaotic trajectory of a flying card to keep [McGregor] sharp, adaptive and responsive to an unexpected situation, with focus on abandoning original prediction and installing a secondary one in a fraction of a second – an ability that often makes the difference between the BEST and just GOOD.

Dana White answers fan questions on livestream

Video appearance

White appears live on Facebook to answer fan questions. He confirms the date, venue, weight and gloves choice. He says the undercard will be put together by Mayweather’s side.

I think that whenever two guys get in there and start throwing punches, anything is possible. If you talk to Conor McGregor he’ll make you belive he’ll win this fight…Conor will turn around and fight again this year after the Mayweather fight…there will be no MMA on this event this event, only boxing…the weight was not an issue at all with Floyd Mayweather, which I didn’t expect…the press conference will be ridiculous…Mayweather, seriously guys, has not complained about anything, he’s been actually really easy to deal with.

McGregor inspires suicidal fan to turn life around

Video appearance

McGregor fan, Tom Nolan, releases a video of his weight loss and mental transformation, inspired by McGregor. Nolan was suffering panic attacks and was suicidal until he saw McGregor face Jose Aldo. He has since lost over one hundred pounds.

How Conor McGregor held himself, how he spoke, his mental state and how he truly had that self-belief was something I took notes on. Was something that I watched deeply and started to say ‘well, if he can think like that, why can’t I?’

McGregor-Mendez corner audio released

Video appearance

The corner audio for McGregor v. Mendez, from UFC 189 is released. After Jose Aldo withdrew from the fight due to a bruised rib, McGregor headed into the bout as favourite with many believing that Mendes’ two week training camp would simply prove to be too little time to prepare. However, Mendes brought McGregor to the mat on several occasions in the two round fight. With Mendes undoubtedly ahead on the judges’ scorecards, McGregor rallied at the end of the second, landing multiple strikes before his left hand eventually found the American’s chin and sent him plummeting to the canvas.

McGregor training video with Roddy

Video appearance

McGregor posts a training video, sparring against Roddy.

Like the late, great Bruce Lee once said: “When you are talking about fighting, as it is, with no rules, well then baby, you’d better train every part of your body”.

Myself and @sbgcharlestown have been working together on unrestricted, unarmed fighting, since we are kids. Not much will change when I fight under the famed, yet very limited, Queensbury rules. No disrespect to single discipline fighters, from boxing to kicking to grappling, just know that understanding one style of fighting is simply not enough. You are lying to yourself. You are easily dismantled in a true fight. A fight with no rules to protect you. In a straight fight, you do not possess enough tools to keep you alive. You will be dismantled and killed. Like the late, great Bruce Lee once said: "When you are talking about fighting, as it is, with no rules, well then baby, you'd better train every part of your body"

McGregor sends ‘protege’ boxing lesson

Video appearance

McGregor posts an Instagram video of him critiquing the boxing techniques of a ‘protege’. He also talks about the Mayweather fight, and about training his son to be a fighter.

Floyd may crap his jocks after all and if so I will go back to true fighting or just pick another boxer like manny or something…When my son is born I will build him up into a multiple free fighting world champion also. Just like his old man. I look forward to it.

Here is a reply video I sent one of my protégés who was seeking advice on some boxing only pad work footage they sent me. I believe you will like it. The focus has been solely boxing lately but make no mistakes, the kicking and grappling aspects, and everything else got to do with unlimited free fighting, is still very much present in my thoughts. Floyd may crap his jocks after all and if so I will go back to true fighting or just pick another boxer like manny or something. But whatever that's another conversation. I like to build fighters and watch their progression. I have built many to this date, and all unintentionally. One is fighting in the UFC main event this weekend. When my son is born I will build him up into a multiple free fighting world champion also. Just like his old man. I look forward to it.

Bellew: I’d take McGregor’s head off

Video appearance

As part of a Snapchat Q&A Bellew is asked if he’d fight McGregor in boxing at Croke park, in Dublin

If he’s weighing 155 and I’m 200 pounds, you are right I’m gonna fight him. I’ll take his head off.

On Mayweather vs. McGregor.

Two totally different sports. If Floyd was to get into a cage with Conor he’d get torn to pieces. He’d literally pull Floyd’s arm off. But if Conor was to get in a boxing ring, and abide by boxing rules, he’d be absolutely outclassed and embarrassed in two to three rounds…Conor’s got a good stand-up game for a UFC fighter. He has an abysmal boxing game. I don’t even think he’d beat British or European champions. But you put him in a cage, the guy’s an animal. He’d pull the arms and legs off you. He’s really that good.

The Softer Side of Conor McGregor video

Video appearance

To complement its feature interview, GQ releases a video called The Softer Side of Conor McGregor, in which the fighter is asked a number of softer questions, such as,”When was the last time you cried?”

Probably when I won my first UFC world title. It was the interim featherweight world title. I travelled all over the world for it and I won. And I was in the shower. And my girlfriend was in the shower with me, and I started crying then.

Mayweather Snr. watches McGregor-Alvarez

Video appearance

Mayweather Snr. comments on McGregor against his son.

Floyd would whoop someone like his ass anyway. A jab would take care his ass all day…I think Conor McGregor is a talker not a do-er. Whatever he do in the ring…they’re not gonna let him get away with sweeping the feet, elbows and all that…Floyd can hit him jabs and stuff all night and cut him up.

Then he watches the McGregor-Alvarez fight.

I ain’t gonna say his fundamentals ain’t good. I don’t think his fundamentals aren’t bad. It ain’t up there with the man…My son gonna cut his beard for him.

Devenish behind-the-scenes video

Video appearance

The Mac Life releases behind-the-scenes video of McGregor’s interview and speech at Devenish nightclub in Belfast.

If I focus with the work ethic I have solely on the sport of boxing, there’s no telling what I could do. I would not go in there just to show up, I’d go in there to knock [Floyd] out. That’s it. He can be hit, he’s been hit before.
