Watch Conor McGregor practice spinning back kick counters during open workouts

McGregor may be putting a bit of his strategy on the table for the viewing public.

Open workouts don't usually tell fans much about where a fighter is before a fight. Often times fighters will look to barely break a sweat, just trying to stay healthy and fulfill their fight week obligations. A bit of stretching, hitting a few pads, and then done. Rarely anything of interest. Conor McGregor, however, treated fans to a pretty comprehensive (if not full speed) open workout session, when he used the full 15 minutes to shadow box and work the pads with his trainers. Most notably, he spent a good portion of the workout showing various counters to spinning back kicks... and there's no way that's an accident.

So, check out McGregor's open workout, it's one of the more involved and active sessions you'll get to see right before a big fight. UFC Fight Night: McGregor vs. Siver takes place Sunday Night starting at 6Eastern 3 Pacific on Fightpass, here's a look at the full card:
