Conor McGregor had some unusual advice for MMA trainees in his latest Instagram post.
The former two-weight UFC champion, who recently donated €1 million to supply hospitals with PPE across the Republic of Ireland, wrote the following:
“Take down your notes and your homework tonight is… enter a cold bath. As cold as it possibly is, you do not need ice.
“Get in the water and then dip your head under fully until you need to come up for air. Repeat this over and over until you can stay under for two minutes fully.
“Then get out. Look at yourself in the mirror and give yourself two full clatters into the teeth. You silly novices, back to bed.
“Just kidding. Respect to all the students of the game.
“Always remember that if it moves, you are focused on the wrong thing. Stay ready, and most importantly, stay in school.”
McGregor’s post also featured a video that featured clips from his dominant KO win over Donald Cerrone at UFC 246 earlier this year.
“Lately atop my striking, I’ve been striking them where they believe they can’t be struck,” wrote the Irishman.
“And with shots they don’t understand to be shots. Look at the range of limbs and bone joints I strike with here alone.
“The hip, the bone of the clavicle, the infamous collar bone! The knee, the foot, the fist (both). A lovely array.
McGregor, who faced Floyd Mayweather in a huge boxing match in 2017, has been tipped for a return to the ring to take on Manny Pacquiao next year.
There has also been speculation that the Irishman will face Nate Diaz in a trilogy fight in the near future.
McGregor suffered a shock submission loss to the Brazilian in 2016, but he got his revenge several months later when he beat Diaz on points.
We will have to wait and see what the future holds for the former two-weight UFC champion.
