This is protocol for boxing, so the reigning UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor will be getting some R&R for the next 60 days, according to MMA Fighting.
Over the weekend, McGregor lost to Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Saturday at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena. It was his first attempt at boxing against the champ. Conor lasted 10 rounds before his technical knockout.
“I was actually very surprised with his ability to do certain things. If he chooses to, he definitely has a future in boxing—if he chooses to. To be able to last as long as he did, he’s a very tough competitor. He has a big heart and, again, he’s showed a lot.”
UFC President Dana White, was less enthused at McGregor possibly pursuing a boxing career.
White said, per the Independent‘s Luke Brown:
“I would rather he did not. This isn’t what he does. He’s a mixed martial artist, he’s better when he uses all of his weapons. I think he did great tonight but I want to see him back in the UFC.”
