Conor McGregor has been using a unique form of therapy to help him cope with the trauma of being knocked off his bike while training for his UFC return. The former two-division champion has been using a technique called ‘bloodsucking cupping’ to help him recover from the incident.
Cupping is an ancient Chinese therapy that has been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments. It involves placing heated cups on the skin, which creates suction and helps to draw out toxins and improve circulation. The technique is believed to help reduce inflammation, improve blood flow, and promote healing.
McGregor has been using the technique to help him recover from the accident, which left him with a broken rib and a bruised lung. He posted a picture of himself on Instagram with the cups on his back, and captioned it “Bloodsucking cupping to help with the trauma.”
The technique is said to be particularly beneficial for athletes, as it helps to reduce muscle tension and improve range of motion. It is also believed to help reduce pain and speed up recovery time.
McGregor has been using the technique as part of his training regime as he prepares for his return to the octagon. He is set to face Dustin Poirier in a rematch at UFC 257 in January 2021.
The former champion has been open about his struggles with mental health in the past, and has spoken about the importance of taking care of his mental health. He has also spoken about the importance of having a good support system in place, and has credited his family and friends for helping him through difficult times.
It is clear that McGregor is taking his recovery seriously, and is doing everything he can to ensure he is in the best possible shape for his return to the octagon. Bloodsucking cupping may be an unconventional technique, but it appears to be working for him.
