Law of Attraction.

Reporter: How are you sir?

Conor: How are you?

Reporter: Good. Congratulations.

Conor: Thank you.

Reporter: I was asking you on Thursday about his right hand —

Conor: Yeah.

Reporter: Can I tell you what you told me?

Conor: I said, his right hand would get him into trouble, that’s the shot I predicted. I said he’d overload on his right hand, I said I’d slip, I said I’d bang the left hook, and that’s what happened.

Reporter: Word for word, you said:

I felt when we starred down, I felt his right hand was twitching, which was a subtle tell for me. He is ready to unload that right hand and I feel that could be a downfall for him. If he lets that right hand go I will not be there. I simply enter the way I enter and that is enough. They either over extended or they shrink away. But either way it is not good for them. I will create traps and dead space inside that octagon and I will walk him into that dead space but all of the sudden he will be in danger.

Reporter: How do you do that? How do you predict these things?

Connor: If you can see it here, and you have the courage enough to speak it, it will happen. I see these shots, I see these sequences and I don’t shy away from them. A lot of times people believe in certain things but they keep to themselves. They don’t put it out there. If you truly believe in it, if you become vocal with it, you are creating that law of attraction and it will become reality. I knew he would over extended and I knew I would catch him.



Lead From Behind


People say they want to be a leader, a teacher, a coach, but very few realize leaderships a servant’s role.

To lead, you must stand behind.

A teacher’s ego mind is set aside for a time, while the focus is not on “what’s me” and “what’s mine,” but how my student will succeed even I in time.

To coach with this approach might seem weak but to most, they think leaderships a post to stand, brag and boast.

But I see the coach as a servant… and upmost

To lead, you must stand behind.

I grew strong, ONLY that I might strengthen you.

I faced pain, ONLY that I might show you though, the stuggles, the tussles, the frustration that brew.

The dark red blood through skin which bruised.

I stand behind you because there was a time that I knew, a man pushed me to get through and pursue.

That dream, that goal, that glory which grew, from down in my guts came up with a spew.

He taught me, he coached me, he split me, he broke me. He cried, and he tried and his methods he wrote me.

With his strength he pushed, that my success might ensue. He made me stronger, that I might make YOU.

And now YOU grow stronger, that you might make too.

The next man in line, like a moment in time, will look behind and there he will find.

You who grew strong, with my foot on your back, forcing you to keep your focus on track.

Like I did you, and he did me, the forces of strength grow like family tree.

A fruit does not grow without branch, without trunk, the nourishing soil underfoot, not up front.

To lead is bow. To teach is to grow. To coach is to know. That when the wind blow, the tree unmoved, in the earth it is stuck

And I stand behind YOU to push YOU up front.

YOU get the sun, YOU feel the rain.

And I’ll keep you strong, from behind I’ll remain.
