UFC 194 Medical Suspensions: McGregor and Rockhold Could Be Out Six Months

Conor McGregor unified his interim featherweight title with Jose Aldo’s UFC featherweight championship at UFC 194 on Saturday night, but it could end up sidelining him until June of 2016.

McGregor and Aldo charged at one another at the opening bell, but it was McGregor who connected. He finished the fight with a 13-second knockout of the man who hadn’t lost in more than a decade.

McGregor must, however, have his left wrist x-rayed and cleared by a doctor, or he will be sitting out until June 12, 2016.

In the night’s co-main event, Luke Rockhold took the middleweight strap from Chris Weidman, but, like McGregor, could be out for the next six months.

Rockhold scored a TKO stoppage of Weidman in the fourth round of their bout, but must get his left foot/ankle x-rayed and cleared by a doctor. If he doesn’t get clearance, he also is suspended until June 12.
