MMA Rules: A Change for the Better?
May 6, 2013
After the recent succession of eye pokes, a lot of people looked to point the finger (which was the problem to begin with) toward officials and gloves as the reason for the injuries. Fans and fighters are calling for better refs, different gloves, or even different rules. The rules are one thing that Dana White likes to agree with on being changed, but it does not mean that the other options should not be explored . . .

Conner McGregor Out of the Mix with Knee Injury



Friday, August 23rd, 2013

by Bryanna Fissori

 

Knees are fragile things, and injuries have become quite the norm inside the octagon. The most recent unlucky recipient of the dreaded tear to his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), coupled with a strain to his medial collateral ligament and a meniscal tear of his posterior horn is Connor McGregor (14-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC). The injury occurred in the second round of his win over Max Holloway at UFC Fight Night 26 on Fox Sports 1.

 

The featherweight could be out of commission for 10 months or more, which is not uncommon for the injury. Some other notable fighters with similar injuries over the past two years include Georges St. Pierre, Shane Carwin, Dominick Cruz (twice), and Forrest Griffin, to name a few.

 

McGregor reported that he felt his knee pop in the second round of the fight, and that is the reason he made the aggressive switch from stand-up to takedowns and ground and pound from the top in the tird round.

 

An Ireland native, McGregor was hoping to compete on October 26 in Manchester, England which is not far from home, but appears that he won’t be making the date.
