    So I have never really been a fan of him since I don't care for hype job. But I watched an interview of him yesterday and he talked about the importance of movement.

    The reason is that, after some wear and tear from judo, I ended up with uneven pelvic which throws of my timing when I am practicing Kyokushin Karate. So I was talking to my therapist few months ago and he said that "best way to keep healthy is to teach your body proper and varied movements"

    This is so true, I have found that learning the mechanics of kicks has helped me with my boxing in terms of having a better hip mobility and its easier to pivot to my lead side because I am more flexible because of the dynamic stretching that is done in karate. In judo, I have learned to have more muscular endurance and that helps with infighting and clinches in boxing in terms of avoiding fatigue.


    Conors philosophy is so important to learn since most fighters training creates wear and tear which takes away their athletic ability and they will never be able to reach their full potential!

    The guy really is the real deal. He's the fighter we need, but one we don't deserve.

    I didn't find this read to be that important.

    I'd honestly go so far as to say it is rather unimportant.

    It was important enough that you felt the need to post. ;-)

    It is though!


    As a long life on an off martial artist and an avid boxing practioner, I can safely say that most people burn out because they lack flexibility and movement.

    While other practioners who are flexible and have good movement are able to avoid injuries because their body has experienced various movements and range of motion.

    Look at a guy like Mayweather or Tommy Hearns, they both have/had great movement and fluidity in their style that allowed them to stay much more healthier than a rough and tough infighter/brawler.

    Also, look at a guy who works in an office or sits in a chair, he is movement/muscle bound because his body is unable to experience various ways of moving and thus he is more prone to pulling or tearing a muscle than someone who has been involved in gymnastic or dance.

    He's as sharp as they come. Could turn his hand to anything and be great at it. He breaks shit down and puts it back together in such a way that enables him to own it. It's what special people do.

    Conor bless.

    If only Conor published poetry, like the Irish poet warrior he really is.

    Me posting mindlessly about something doesn't make it very important.

    Basically Conor sees the benefits in being a well rounded athlete. That's what I'm getting from this. It's not all that shocking unless you can get into specifics about anything revolutionary that Conor said. That would be important.

    What does this even mean, is this Conor bless ideology? Forget Conor bless, more like Conor Cult...

    Conor is known for his lack of witticism. His statements are boring and mundane, bottom of the barrel WWE trash talk. Devoid of imagination. The death of the English language, the antithesis of originality. His nuthuggers follow suit, this being an example where a poster horribly fails to twist a quote from Batman. into a dumb mcconism.
