Conor McGregor did the impossible last weekend and went almost 10 rounds against Floyd Mayweather before losing by TKO. Unfortunately for him lasting as long as he did before the fight was stopped, the Irish brawler was issued a two-month medical suspension by the Nevada Athletic Commission on Tuesday.
McGregor has been suspended from competition until Oct. 26 and is barred from “contact” until Oct. 11.
A medical suspension is reportedly standard regulatory practice in combat sports and shouldn’t affect his next fight.
The mixed martial artist received praise for his boxing debut, winning the first round of the bout according to all three judges and landing a total of 111 punches, reports ESPN.
