Conor McGregor was knocked out standing (T.K.o.) in the tenth round last Saturday when he fought Floyd Mayweather in a boxing super fight in Las Vegas. And a few days after the defeat, the Irishman has been informed about the length of his suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission, a standard measure applied to ensure the health of the competitors after a fight.
According to the report, the UFC lightweight champion will have to be on the shelf until October 26, meaning that he can’t compete for two months. A return to the ring – or the cage – this year therefore seems unlikely.
According to MMAFighting.com, whose editors had access to the official document, five other boxers who competed that night were also suspended. For instance, Juan Heraldez and José Miguel Borrego will be unable to compete until 2018 unless they’re cleared by a doctor.
