Conor McGregor hasn’t fought in the UFC since his TKO victory over fellow MMA fighter Donald Cerrone. That fight was in January of this year. Conor was hoping to find himself on the mat three times this year but the Wuhan corona virus intervened. It put a halt to a lot of UFC fights. His so-called feud with Dana White hasn’t helped his cause either although the UFC would be keen to see him back in the ring. Despite his antics McGregor is still a major draw card for the UFC promotion.
Getting Back To Training
Now if will be up to McGregor to get back on the exercise mats and get himself fit for the fight. It is not easy fighting in the UFC with so many variables so it is important that he is in his peak fitness. One way to do that is to train hard. If he is to train hard then he needs to do whatever necessary to make sure he doesn’t get injured. One of the ways he can do that is by training on good quality exercise mats such as good jigsaw mat or tatami mats. It is what good athletes do and there is no question that McGregor is a great athlete.
UFC is The Premier Competition
The UFC is the premier MMA fighting organisation in the world. Many of the greatest fighters are signed to the UFC and can only fight exclusively with the organisations. Whilst there are other well known MMA organisations out there none has the same economic clout. It is a well know fact that UFC fighters use exercise mats during their training. If they use them then logic stands that all aspiring MMA fighters should be using them in their routines also. That is without question.
