UFC 257 medical suspensions: Conor McGregor possibly out for six months


Conor McGregor may have headlined the first UFC pay-per-view of the year, but it could be a while before we see “The Notorious” in action again.

In the lightweight main event of UFC 257 on Saturday in Abu Dhabi, McGregor lost by second-round TKO to Dustin Poirier. His downfall was preceded by several stinging leg kicks and that was reflected in the official medical suspensions list from mixedmartialarts.com.

McGregor requires a negative result from an X-ray on his right tibula/fibula, or else he will be suspended for 180 days. Poirier was only handed a seven-day suspension for mandatory rest.

Two other fighters are also potentially facing six-month suspensions, lightweight Matt Frevola (right hand) and middleweight Andrew Sanchez (nasal, left tibula/fibula). Both require negative X-rays on their injured areas to avoid the maximum suspension.
