We’re pretty sure Jose Aldo will be watching this video closely.

The Brazilian UFC champion will be the next man to step into the octagon to face Conor McGregor, with the two fighters to meet in their title unification bout at UFC 194 on December 12.

Much has been said about McGregor’s fighting style and unorthodox training methods, but one thing’s for certain – the man knocks people out.

He showed it against Marcus Brimage in his debut, then again in the fight against Dennis Siver and then most recently against Chad Mendes.

While he might pull out some crazy spinning kicks during a fight, his techniques and combinations are actually pretty simple, according to Jack Slack’s Ringcraft.

Simple, but devastating.

There’s techniques in there from boxing greats like Prince Naseem Hamed and Archie Moore, as well as kicking from Mirko Cro Cop in his Pride heyday and karate and taekwondo.

So if you want to fight like The Notorious – or you’re a Brazilian that might need a few tips on how not to get beaten sh*tless in a fight against him – then this 10-minute McGregor masterclass is well worth a watch.
