Conor McGregor looks back on his striking masterclass against Donald Cerrone at UFC 246.

To keep his fans entertained during lockdown, Conor McGregor has posted a technical breakdown of his striking masterclass against Donald Cerrone at UFC 246, which saw ‘The Notorious’ dispose of ‘Cowboy’ in just 40 seconds after overwhelming Cerrone with a barrage of punches, kicks, knees, shoulder strikes, and ground strikes.

McGregor posted video highlights of the matchup with the following message attached.

“Lately atop my striking, I’ve been striking them where they believe they can’t be struck also. 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. That will be all kids now 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 and until you need to come up for air. Repeat this over and over until you can stay under for 2 minutes fully. Then Get out. Look at yourself in the mirror, And give your self 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. @mcgregorfast ”.

UFC 246 was the last time we saw McGregor compete inside the Octagon. The former UFC featherweight and lightweight champ was hoping to fight two more times in 2020 but the coronavirus pandemic has forced the Irishman to amend his schedule. McGregor is expected to face top-five UFC lightweight contender Justin Gaethje upon his return — whenever that is.

The UFC has postponed all events indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
