Most people knew about Conor McGregor long before he fought Jose Aldo at UFC 194. Of course, everyone knows him now that he’s the undisputed UFC Featherweight Champion. It took him 13 seconds to knock Aldo out, and Notorious is now the UFC’s biggest draw. McGregor has spoken about his focus on Movement Training leading to the fight.

In fact, he started Movement Training after he tore an ACL in a previous fight. McGregor tested out various exercises by himself before discovering Ido Portal’s teachings. Movement Training focuses upon maximizing a human being’s range of motion. Likewise, balance and limberness are key focuses here.
