Conor McGregor recently shouted out the incredible Zion Clark for his MMA debut win this past Saturday. The 25-year-old fighter was born without legs due to a rare birth disorder but that didn’t stop him from dominantly defeating his opponent to win via a unanimous decision at the Gladiator Challenge: Seasons Beatings in California.

McGregor was full of praise for Clark’s incredible achievement and took to Twitter to make it known. Interestingly, the Irishman also tagged the UFC in his message, perhaps as a way to make the world’s premier MMA promotion take notice of this incredible MMA artist. He tweeted:

“Absolutely legendary ! @ufc.”

Conor McGregor further continued to analyze the threat that Zion Clark posed to his opponents and described the only way to beat the Ohio native in the octagon.

The former two-division champion noted that since his opponents can’t kick him due to him being grounded, they would have to develop a particular skill. He tweeted:

“Can’t kick as he is grounded opponent. The only way to stop him is to develop ko ending shots mid transitions in grappling. Very few on the planet possess this skill…”
