Conor McGregor’s trainer announces the gym is closing

Conor McGregor owes much of his success in the martial arts world to his trainer, John Kavanagh. The couple have been working together since 2007, and Kavanagh has seen Conor’s best and worst moments. He led him to the top of the featherweight division before helping him become the first simultaneous bipartisan champion in the UFC. He also trained him for the Floyd Mayweather boxing extravaganza.

Their relationship suffered after Conor lost to Chabib Nurmagomedov, but the two made it up. However, Kavanagh’s influence is not confined to Conor. He’s a trainer to many and runs his own MMA gym. It is considered the largest MMA gym in Ireland and is called the Straight Blast Gym or SBG.

Due to the second wave of the COVID pandemic in Europe, countries are planning to reintroduce lockdowns. Ireland was the first nation to announce this move, which means that Kavanagh will be directly affected. His gym will be closed during this next lockdown.

Kavanagh won’t be able to work out from his gym but will have to do something if Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier fight in early 2021. Conor is unlikely to prepare for this fight without the man who prepared him for almost every fight of his life.

Conor McGregor and John Kavanagh

Kavanagh is the man who has been whispering in Conor’s ear since he became a fighter. While Conor’s success meant that he would eventually become his own man, Kavanagh’s influence on Conor’s success is often underestimated. Not only did he train Conor, but he was also a mentor for the then-young fighter.

Their bond suffered from Conor’s success as Conor began to fight less often and Kavanagh continued to train newer fighters in his gym. But they’re closer than ever and Kavanagh is still the biggest influence on Conor’s struggles. You will bond soon enough to prepare for the Poirier battle.

While gym closings are a bit of an issue, a person with the resources Conor has at his disposal can arrange many alternatives. However, not all fighters can escape such situations, so shutting down the gym will hurt some people.
