Conor McGregor It might be the main title for this year’s UFC pay-per-view debut, but it might take some time before we see “The Notorious” in action again.
The main event is lightweight UFC 257 On Saturday in Abu Dhabi, McGregor lost a TKO second-round to Dustin Poirier. His fall was preceded by several stinging kicks in the leg, and this was reflected in the list of official medical stops Mixedmartialarts.com.
McGregor requires a negative X-ray result on his right bone / fibula, otherwise he will be suspended for 180 days. Poirier was only granted a seven-day suspension for mandatory rest.
Two more fighters will likely face a six-month suspension, lightweight Frivula died (Right Hand) and Medium Weight Andrew Sanchez (Nose, left bronchus / fibula). Both require negative x-rays on their affected areas to avoid extreme suspension.
