UFC 202 Medical Suspensions: Conor McGregor Could Be Out Until Early 2017

Conor McGregor exacted his revenge upon Nate Diaz at UFC 202 on Saturday night, but he could find himself on the shelf until early 2017.

McGregor and Diaz battled back and forth for five rounds, with Diaz looking the worse for the wear, his face bloodied and swollen at the end of the night. He only faced a minimal medical suspension, having to sit out until Sept. 20 to allow his wounds to heal.

McGregor, however, could be out until Feb. 17, 2017. He was issued the suspension due to a possible left foot and/or ankle fracture. If he submits medical clearance from an orthopedist, McGregor could be back sooner, but was issued a minimum suspension until Oct. 20.
