FightEffect on YouTube always put out great videos. Whether it’s cornerman audio during a fight or other things of the like, they put together fantastic videos which give us a view of things we may not normally see. In this case, they have a bunch of the top professionals in MMA and BJJ commenting on Conor McGregor’s ground skills.
Just because Conor has lost all of his fights on the ground does not mean that he doesn’t have ground skills. Conor is very good on the ground, but he can starch people with one punch while standing; So why even attempt to grapple?
FightEffect shows reactions from people like Demetrious Johnson, Rener Gracie, and Georges St-Pierre during McGregor’s fights. These top wrestlers and BJJ practitioners are commenting about his groundwork and being very complimentary about it.
Saying that he’s pretty damn good on the ground tells us a lot before going into his fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov. Does this mean that Connor’s better on the ground than Khabib? Probably not. However, it might not be as much of a cakewalk for Khabib as everybody is thinking.
