Will the real Conor McGregor please stand up?
No, that is not “The Notorious” making his first in-cage appearance of 2019. The fighter featured in the above clip is actually featherweight Maurice Adorf, who competed at a German MMA Championship event in Hamburg on Saturday.
If the grooming and tattoo placement weren’t similar enough, Adorf takes a springy stance similar to that of the former UFC two-division champion, and even shows hints of the left hand power for which McGregor is known.
Adorf went on to improve to 2-0 with a TKO victory over Ridvan Nuka, so if it is his intention to imitate McGregor, at least he did the Irishman proud.
