    I'm convinced McGregor practices Jeet Kune Do but has never cited it in his interviews. Just watching clips of Bruce Lee and instantly recognised the kicks/stance... This is crazy..! Conor the Dragon McGregor!

  5. Just no. Jeet Kune Do is not a specific style.

    No, Conor's stance is a Karate stance + movement, which is why you probably think it's JKD, but Conor is like the ghetto version of JKD w/o training in JKD. But Conor looks as stiff as a board compared to Lee, but he'd pass for JKD vs. a basic guy doing JKD.

    Whatever it is it's working, IMO he is the slickest striker in the UFC.

    Another shit Conor thread that didn't need to exist, Christ almighty, you Conorheads. Is there any fundamental difference between you guys and the teenaged girls who adore Justin Bieber?

    "Oh, I love the way he looks in those pants! And the wing tips, OMG. A new tattoo! I'd so pick his beard for him."

    I got into a big confrontation with a JKD guy once. I told a student of his that what I was teaching was in the spirit of what Bruce Lee taught, basically, "Use what is useful and discard what isn't."
    Next thing I know, the guy shows up with his students and gets in my face.
    He wants to see my JKD credentials.
    I told him to get lost or I'd send him to the hospital.
    It was like some stupid Kung Fu movie.
    He left without incident.

    One of the basic rules of jeet kune do is to have your most powerfull hand in front of you ( opposite stance) which he obivously doesn't have. So he might have seen some Bruce lee movies but I don't think that he practices jeet kune do.

    conor very often has quoted Bruce lee. It's obvious he admired him and has taken great influence from him. As has most people in any form of martial arts.

    True, but certain concepts are.
