He's fast, but not lightning speed it seems to me. And a lot of his speed comes from his technique rather than his physical ability. His movements are fluid and have no kinks in them. His stance also allows him to lunge in fast with his initial strike. So I think Aldo is physically faster eventhough that might not look like it if they fought because of McGregor's technique. How do you guys think his speed compares to the rest of the division? Judging from his training footage he might train too slow. With that personal trainer I saw him mostly do bodybuilding type work-outs, which to me seems counterproductive in terms of speed and power. It's rare to see fighters training for speed anyway when looking at their training footage on UFC Countdown, 24/7, fightcamp 360 and such. You do see them often training for endurance, strength and power etc. but not really for speed. Maybe most of their speed comes from bagwork and sparring. It seems to me there's room for improvement since I think you can increase your speed with training and you can also decrease your speed with training.
