It takes some serious balls to be an MMA fighter, and this couldn’t be more true, or more literal, when it comes to Notorious himself, Conor McGregor.
In a recent interview with GQ, McGregor shared where exactly he hones in his punching power. And it’s a little more below the belt than we were expecting.
“No one’s work is clean like my work. My shots are clean. My shots are precise,” McGregor said. “It’s all in the nut sack. It’s all in the ball sack. I just have confidence that comes from my big ball sack, and I know when I smack you, you’re going down. And that’s it.”
He’s the only fighter in the history of the UFC to hold titles in two divisions, simultaneously. To be the champ in one weight class is a feat in itself, but to do it in two is just flat-out impressive. So yeah, we’ll take his word for it on the whole nut sack thing.
