If there is anything in the world Conor McGregor is more famous for than his MMA abilities and his highly decorated career, it is ‘the walk’.
The Irishman is widely known for his larger than life attitude and arrogance. He also struts on his way to the ring and in the octagon as well. What we’re referring to is ‘the walk’, and here’s why Mcgregor does it in the first place.
While most of us would think there is quite a hidden story behind it, the reason is actually quite plain and simple. The McGregor walk is pretty similar to the ‘billionaire strut’ by WWE chief Vince McMahon. One can see that this walk comes with the arrogance and the persona McGregor wishes to bring to the ring, and boy does it fit him well!
Conor had also admitted that he has copied the chief’s walk-in style. But does it really matter now? Conor has been doing it for all these years and he has totally OWNED the walk.
Now that we have established the story of the walk and the world has pretty much associated it with Conor McGregor, it is time to pass on the legacy to Jr. McGregor. In a video posted by the former boxer, his son can be seen doing the strut on what we believe is a karate championship, have a look:
Now, that’s quite the walk for the little one, isn’t it? Picking up from where his boxer-daddy left off little McGregor seems to be picking up quickly. This is not the first time we have seen him do the walk either, probably the first time he has done it in an action sport.
Around October last year, McGregor Jr. was seen doing the walk at one of the events he had attended along with his father.
This is probably the best personification of “stepping into your father’s shoes”.
