Broke his leg at UFC 264
Conor McGregor broke his leg at UFC 264 last summer, during the fight against long time rival Dustin Poirier. It was in the very last seconds of the first round that his leg snapped and the doctors stopped the fight in between the rounds.
Recently, “The Notorious” said he was awaiting test results that would show if he was ready to use his leg again.
“I should be able to kick now. I have another CT scan in the coming days. Then I’ll be cleared to kick,” McGregor told Sky Sports. “Once I can kick and grapple, I’ll be back in no time. Boxing training is going well, and strength training. That’s all. I’m excited to get back.”
Conor McGregor vs. who?
When Conor McGregor makes his return to the octagon there are plenty of fighters willing to face him.
Lately, the Irish superstar has been trading social media shots with welterweight Jorge Masvidal. Another possible matchup would be lightweight Michael Chandler. A fight that UFC president Dana White seems to like.
“I don’t know. I really like Chandler vs. Conor after Chandler’s last fight,” White recently said. “There’s plenty of fights to make, I don’t know if that’s the one, but we’ll see what the landscape looks like when Conor comes back.”
