MMA: McGregor dedahkan punca tewas dengan Khabib

BINTANG seni bela diri campuran (MMA) Ireland, Conor McGregor akhirnya merungkai tentang kesilapan yang dibuatnya sehingga tewas di tangan Khabib Nurmagomedov pada aksi UFC 229, 7 Oktober lalu.

Dalam satu posting yang panjang lebar di Instagram miliknya kelmarin, McGregor mengakui telah tersilap teknik, menyebabkan dia dikalahkan oleh jaguh Rusia itu pada pusingan keempat.

Bagaimanapun, dia akur dengan keputusan tersebut dan menyifatkan kekalahan itu sebagai “adil dan saksama”.

“Saya membuat kesilapan kritikal dengan mengabaikan ‘overhook’ saya pada saat yang penting, mendedahkan bahagian belakang saya, yang akhirnya saya ditewaskan secara adil.

“Apa yang boleh saya katakan? Ia pertarungan yang hebat dan saya menyukainya. Saya akan kembali dengan keyakinan yang tinggi. Bersiap sedialah,” katanya.

Mengulas tentang pertarungan semula (rematch) dengan Khabib, McGregor berkata tiada sebarang masalah baginya jika pertarungan itu tidak diadakan dalam masa terdekat.

“Saya akan hadapi sesiapa sahaja (petarung) yang seterusnya. Kepada para peminat saya, jumpa lagi.. saya sayang anda semua,” katanya lagi.

Thoughts on my last fight. Round 1. I believe from a sport standpoint, round 1 was his. Top position against the fence. Zero position advancement or damage inflicted. But top position. From a fight standpoint the first round is mine. Actual shots landed and a willingness to engage. Straight left early. Knee to the head on the low shot. Elbows in any and all tie up scenarios. Opponent just holding the legs against the fence for almost the entire round. Round 2 he is running away around the cage before being blessed with a right hand that changed the course of the round, and the fight. It was a nice shot. After the shot I bounced back up to engage instantly, but again he dipped under to disengage. That is the sport and it was a smart move that led to a dominant round, so no issue. Well played. If I stay switched on and give his stand up even a little more respect, that right hand never gets close and we are talking completely different now. I gave his upright fighting no respect in preparation. No specific stand up spars whatsoever. Attacking grapplers/wrestlers only. That won’t happen again. I also gave my attacking grappling no respect. To defense minded. Lessons. Listen to nobody but yourself on your skill set. You are the master of your own universe. I am the master of this. I must take my own advice. Round 3. After the worst round of my fighting career, I come back and win this round. Again walking forward, walking him down, and willing to engage. Round 4. My recovery was not where it could have been here. That is my fault. Although winning the early exchanges in 4, he dips under again and I end up in a bad position with over 3 on the clock. I work to regain position and end up upright, with my back to the fence. A stable position. Here however, I made a critical error of abandoning my over hook at this crucial time, exposing the back, and I end up beaten fair and square. What can I say? It was a great fight and it was my pleasure. I will be back with my confidence high. Fully prepared. If it is not the rematch right away, no problem. I will face the next in line. It’s all me always, anyway. See you soon my fighting fans I love you all ❤
