“Main event, Conor McGregor … Conor McGregor, I’m sorry, Dustin Poirier. Again, Conor McGregor, who is devoted to the same thing, can’t keep people away from the karate stance. That’s what I do. For the same reason as I left it. Daniel Cormier says I have the best karate stance in MMA, but it’s a bit too dangerous so I had to lean out of it “Henry Cejudo said. “So if I give him advice, I tell him,’The guy keeps the same stance, but the distance is enough.'”
“People now know that the forefoot kick is there. That calf kick made a man like Justin Gaethje successful. In my opinion, he started it. Marlon Moraes struck me with it, you can learn from these things and you can adjust. This is how you evolve as a fighter. “
Henry Cejudo (16-2 MMA) retired from mixed martial arts shortly after defeating Dominick Cruz in the TKO at UFC 249. At the time of his rather shocking retirement, “Triple C” was a promotion to govern and defend the flyweight and bantamweight champions.
