Conor McGregor Comes Under Fire Over Boxing Technique Ahead of UFC Return

18 May , 2022,

Conor McGregor has been putting the hard yards in at the gym as he continues his recovery from a broken leg. But by the looks of things, he is trying something new to strike fear into his rivals.

A video recently surfaced of the Irishman using his unconventional “bow and arrows” technique and he is gearing up for a return to the Octagon later this year. The “bow and arrows” technique seems to be modelled on boxing and McGregor famously took on Floyd Mayweather nearly five years ago in one of the highest-grossing exhibition fights in Las Vegas.

For now, McGregor has been hitting pads with his coach and he will be itching for a return after back-to-back defeats last year in his ongoing feud with Dustin Poirier. While McGregor came under fire from UFC rival Henry Cejudo over his boxing heavy approach, labelling it “unbelievable”, McGregor is sticking to his guns and isn’t moving away from his style.

Dana White unconvinced by Francis Ngannou & Tyson Fury hybrid MMA fight speculation

10 May , 2022,

We’ve been there before, so if current UFC Heavyweight Champion Francis Ngannou and reigning WBC Heavyweight Boxing Champion Tyson Fury get their own way, we’ll be there again. Just ask previous crossover combatants Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather, when their 2017 bout in Las Vegas became a license to print money.

Indeed, that will inevitably be the biggest motivation for both Ngannou and Fury, should the two get it on in the ring for a crossover encounter, as the best of MMA takes on arguably the top heavyweight boxer in the world. But when asked if it can and even should happen, UFC supremo Dana White believes it’s a “silly” idea.

Due to contractual obligations, Ngannou would of course need to seek backing from the UFC and White, although that doesn’t seem to be something the latter is willing to provide. During his appearance on the Pat McAfee Show which airs online at YouTube, White was pretty damning of the whole idea.

“F*cking waste of time, energy, and money,” said White of any proposed boxing match between Ngannou and Fury. “It’s silly, but I get it,” added the boss of UFC, clear that both fighters would only be in this for the money. This is quite a stark difference of opinion compared to 2017, when former two-division UFC champion Connor McGregor and boxing icon Floyd Mayweather were about to fight, accompanied with his own blessing.

Will The UFC Heavyweight Championship Belt Change Hands This Year? 

The UFC is one of the most competitive fighting competitions in the world and anyone who earns a championship title knows that they could lose it in their very next fight.  The UFC is the leading Mixed Martial Arts fighting company in the world. They host fights across the globe but are based in Las Vegas, Nevada. Many of the biggest names in the MMA scene are part of the UFC roster. 

At the start of each year, we like to speculate what championship belts are going to be changing hands and today we are going to focus on the Heavyweight Championship belt. 

Heavyweight fighters in the UFC must weigh between 206 and 265 lbs. The current Heavyweight Champion is Francis Ngannou. He won the title in 2021 and has defended it once since. 

Note – Ngannou had surgery in March 2022 and will not be fighting for at least 10 months. This means that the undisputed Heavyweight Title may not be up for grabs this year; however UFC may introduce another interim title as they often do.

Do you think that Ngannou will hold onto his title when he returns? You can find the best MMA odds on upcoming fights here.
