Former two-weigh UFC champion Henry Cejudo has given some advice to Conor McGregor after his recent loss to Dustin Poirier.
Both McGregor and Cejudo wee at one point in time “Champ-champs” and they both know what defeats taste like.
“The Notorious” got beat by Dustin Poirier this past weekend at UFC 257 and obviously “Triple C” was watching.

“Main event, Conor McGregor… Conor McTapper, I’m sorry and Dustin Poirier. Again, leaning into the same thing, Conor McGregor you cannot just continue to keep pressing people off the karate stance. It’s the same reason why I came away from it. Even though Daniel Cormier says I have the best karate stance in MMA, I had to lean away from it cuz it is a little too dangerous.” Henry Cejudo said.
“So if I was to give him some advice, I’d tell him ‘Man continue with the same stance but just become better at distance.’”
“Because people now know that that front leg kick is there. That calf kick has made guys like Justin Gaethje successful. Which in my opinion he’s the one that started it. Marlon Moraes hit me with it, which you learn from these things and you are able to adjust. This is how you evolve as a fighter.”
