Despite offering him advice, Henry Cejudo has no intention of collaborating with Conor McGregor

After retiring from MMA for three years, Henry Cejudo emerged as one of the sport’s top coaches, training fighters like Jon Jones, Jiri Prochazka, and even former opponent Demetrious Johnson. Although he runs an Arizona-based gym that has seen many top athletes pass through its doors, Cejudo stated that he would not coach Conor McGregor if he asked due to past offensive comments the Irishman made towards people close to him.

McGregor has stirred up controversy with personal remarks not limited to Khabib Nurmagomedov’s family and Dustin Poirier’s wife, leading Cejudo, an accomplished to conclude that McGregor has offended too many friends of his. Cejudo has analyzed McGregor’s past performances and believes that it is his reliance on counter fighting rather than aggression that has led to his recent 1-3 record.

Cejudo feels that McGregor needs to adjust his stance, move his weight more to his back foot, and be less reliant on power in order to be successful in the future. McGregor, who is set to return to action against Michael Chandler, must decide whether to listen to Cejudo’s critique or risk repeating his recent subpar performances.
