McGregor replied, “Interesting question. It would have to be better to take it relaxed. However, with eyes fully on the slap at all time. 100%! Full awareness with a relaxed brace I would say is best.” He emphasizes the importance of being fully aware and relaxed when receiving a slap. This way, the body can better absorb the force of the slap.

McGregor also adds, “Then all you can do is pray the opponents sum of force x velocity is less than needed.” This highlights the unpredictable nature of a fight and the importance of being prepared for any situation. By being aware and relaxed, a fighter can better handle the force of a slap and potentially avoid injury.
