The UFC is dominated by the Dublin born, “Notorious” Conor McGregor. With a current record of 21 wins (18 by KO) and 3 losses he is arguably one of the fiercest fighters on the planet. Not only are his stats incredible, so is his determination and dedication to his training, and pushing himself beyond his physical limits. He didn’t get where he is today by chance, getting to the top takes hard work, perseverance and overcoming obstacles. Unfortunatley we don’t hold the key to all his secrets, but we do however know some of his training techniques which you can imitate to train like the UFC’s current Lightweight Champion.
