    Can we please start calling McGregor zyGOAT??


    Because much like a pre-fetus zygote, McGregor is being given rights and traits that only idiots would ascribe to him as of now.


    zyGOAT

    If he beats a decent wrestler (or Aldo!) I'll hop right on that bandwagon. I like the guy, good style etc. The hype bugs me, but if it turns out to be validated, the hype will bug me nomore. I think that's how a lot of sherdog and lots of the MMA community feels.

    Jesus. Screw you guys with your fickle "goat" labeling. I came in expecting something other than a rising star.

    He works those short quick punches well instead of bringing them back in fully to load up again like most fighters do (pulling them back into guard/chambering). His boxing accumen shows.

    How can you not love this guy? He is exactly what the UFC needed at this time. I'm pretty over the UFC and mma in general, but I'll sure as fuck be watching any Conor fights.

    Yep, I saw this video not too long ago. However, I noticed McGregor utilizing these short range punches well before then, ie., in the Brimage fight. As the guy in the video says, it can give you an advantage/edge, but, it can also make it harder for you to defend counters unless your head movement is good while you're punching like that. It is an advanced/high level method of punching, which he mentions. Not even just an advanced level method of punching but as he also stated you only see good or better boxers with lots of experience and the ability to relax their muscles fully throwing these punches in their fights. McGregor is one of the only MMA fighters I know of that you can be impressed with simply by watching him shadow box. That's because he's showing off advanced level methods of punching and techniques, not just the basics.
