Former double UFC champion Conor McGregor commented on the news that American wrestler Zion Clarke, who was born without both legs, made a successful mixed martial arts debut over the weekend, scoring his first professional win as an MMA fighter.
“It was absolutely amazing to hear about this man’s debut and now to see it,” the Irishman wrote on the social media. “How easily he makes a one-leg pass. Wow! It’s best not to mess with this guy. My congratulations and respect to Zion Clark! MMA is the best sport!”
McGregor also noted some features of the fight.
“He couldn’t be kicked as he is considered a grounded opponent. The only option to stop him is to knock him out while trying to transfer, but very few people on the planet have this skill. And a downward strike loses three-quarters of its power. Look at his opponent’s attempts to hit in front of the pass. Pure madness!”
The American did not disregard the words of the former UFC champion.
“Appreciate the love and respect Conor,” Clark wrote. “This is just the start for me and I can’t wait to see how far I can go in the fighting game. I proved to all doubters that they were wrong by becoming a wrestler of the first national division. Respectfully”
“Absolutely legendary!” McGregor replied.
Born with Caudal Regression Syndrome, Zion Clark, 25, is known for his inspiring history and competitive sports.
The Ohio native holds several Guinness World Records, including a 20-meter handheld run, an 84cm hand-only box jump, and the so-called diamond (diamond) push-ups (248 times in three minutes). ). Clark gives motivational speeches across the country, enjoys skateboarding, wrestling, rock climbing and drumming.
