Conor McGregor Suspended for 6 Months After Shocking KO!
McGregor getting knocked out took everyone by surprise. Now, the UFC has issued a suspension for the next six months for McGregor. Read on…
CelebnSports247.com reports Conor McGregor has been medically suspended for six months after his UFC 257 defeat by Dustin Poirier.
Here is what we’ve learned following the shocking KO Conor McGregor endured:
The former two-division champion, 32, suffered a devastating second-round KO loss to Poirier on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
McGregor was spotted on crutches the next day after he was caught by a series of devastating kicks from the American, whom he now wants to meet in a trilogy showdown.
That was his third setback in his last six octagon outings and has shattered his hopes of landing a money-making rematch with rival Khabib Nurmagomedov.
It has also delayed his quest to reclaim the lightweight title — although he has vowed to bounce back and fight again as quickly as possible.
But now the Irishman will have to wait a little longer than he hoped for to get back to business.
MMA.tv, which is the official record keeper for the Association of Boxing Commissions, has confirmed to MixedMartialArts that the superstar has been medically suspended for six months, according to NYPost.
Conor took to social media following the fight on Sunday thanking his fans for support.
Thanks for the support everyone! Was not my night/morning in there but a great contest to improve on. I’m excited at the blockbuster trilogy I now have on my hands. Dustin is a hell of a competitor and I look forward to going again. God bless us all, happy Sunday ??

That means, unless he gets cleared by a doctor, he will be unable to fight again until July.
