I don't own a TV. Youtube is better anyways! Follow me for cool lists about Youtube and online media!

The Only Superstar in the UFC 2017

It's no doubt Conor McGregor has become a sensation in many different worlds -- mainly the MMA culture and online. While some compare his jumping jab style to Ali, others swear his style is more reminiscent of Goku from Dragon Ball Z. In this list of 10 videos that Conor McGregor fans will love, everything from how to master Conor's punching techniques to how he was raised and came up are explored. There is some great technical analysis, but also just some riveting fan-made videos of his prowess. Buckle in and lets begin!

How to Counter like Conor

This is an exceptionally well-made video from the MMA Coach Youtube channel, in which the presenter does a solid breakdown of the 4 different methods of counter-punches Conor McGregor uses to get his left hand knockouts. The four methods are: fade and counter, slip and counter, skip back then forward and counter, and counter while moving backwards. This video is definitely worth a watch if you want to see how the champ champ made it to the top!

Video via FightTIPS

How to get Power like Conor

A personal favourite of mine, the Youtube channel fightTIPS does a great video to follow the previous one. A counter-punch is only worth what you're able to put behind it -- and Conor McGregor has power like no one else in that left hand. This video tells you how Conor McGregor gets the knockout power in his left hand punches using laser-like precision, an understanding of the anatomy of the fist, baiting of his opponents and trapping their hands.

Conor McGregor vs Alvarez

This work of art by Devon Tracey of the Atheism-is-Unstoppable Youtube channel is my favourite way to relive the moments leading up to Conor Mcgregor vs Eddie Alvarez, and the subsequent ass-kicking that followed. A sweet cover of "Where is my Mind" fades into the real thing as Eddie becomes Ed Norton in Fight Club, and reality hits him in the face a good 20+ times. If you want to watch Conor McGregor vs Eddie Alvarez online for free, this is the best way to do it.

Video via Sports MMA

McGregor vs Nate Diaz 2

Thanks to the Sports MMA Youtube channel, we have this sick highlight reel of the best moments from Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz number 2. The music and editing bring back the emotion and drama from the whole battle leading up to their second fight, and it's a perfect video to show anyone who thinks Conor didn't win! It's also just my favourite way to watch Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz online for free.

Top 10 McGregor Knockouts

A perfect way to just appreciate the come up, the Zh Slayer Youtube channel put together a highlight reel of Conor McGregor's top 10 knockouts. I won't spoil the list by telling you who the best knockouts are in my opinion, but I will say that I think a lot of thought went into the order of the list and I agree mostly with it. That being said, almost all of Conor's knockouts are pretty amazing.

Video via Fight Focus

His Opponents Before & After

The best part about this video from the Fight Focus Youtube channel isn't even seeing the reaction of Conor McGregor's opponents after he beats them compared to their feigned confidence before, but the far-off camera angles used to capture the stadium-wide echoing thud of Conor knocking some sense into his would-be contenders. Of course, it's always hilarious to rewatch Joe Rogan ask Jose Aldo if he can remember anything from the fight as well!

Video via Will Prescott

It Was All a Dream

There is a bit of overlap from previous videos in the beginning of this one from the Will Prescott Youtube channel, but it's still definitely worth a full watch through. It helps the viewer visual the dream that Conor has had all along, and how some of the people in his life didn't even understand what he was aiming for. Conor is well known for his confidence, but in this video he talks a bit about some of the doubts he had, which is rare to see.

Video via Hizzer Edits

Conor is the Future

This 40 minute documentary-style video was made by the Hizzer Edits Youtube channel, but it's got to be on this list because it's honestly one of the best ones to watch for new and old fans alike who are feeling the heat of McGregor around the world. Conor McGregor is currently the only superstar in the UFC, and the biggest superstar fighter in the entire world -- while this video makes the argument that he is the future of the sport, it's impossible to argue that he isn't the present!

Video via Edward Balli

Mystic Man: McGregor

This one from Edward Balli's Youtube channel takes a different approach than every other video, choosing instead to examine how Conor reacts to a loss (the first match against Nate Diaz). "It stings, it stings real bad," said McGregor in an interview after the fight, "but it's the fight business". This video explores it in more depth, but I think that's the main takeaway -- Conor knows exactly how to take a loss, which is surprising for someone who so rarely does so!

Video via Modern Martial Artist

That Left Hand Again

A solid video from the Modern Martial Artist's Youtube channel reminds us again how good Conor McGregor is with that left hand in this detailed video that isn't aimed at teaching his techniques as much as it is analysing them and contrasting them with other great fighters of the past. It's one thing to know how Conor punches in principal, it's another to watch it broken down on video!

--------------- Thanks for reading! ---------------

Let me know if I missed any of your favourite videos in the comments, and maybe I'll make another list! I know there is going to be tons more content coming from Conor McGregor fans in the future!
