The phenom known as Conor McGregor will be sidelined for the next several months after tearing his ACL and suffering other ligament damage.
UFC president Dana White confirmed the knee injury during an appearance on FOX Sports Live Thursday night. McGregor is looking at a 10-month surgery/rehab process before returning to action.
After defeating Max Holloway at UFC Fight Night: Shogun vs. Sonnen, the Irish fighter complained of issues with his knee, saying that he “heard a pop” during the fight.
Upon heading to the UFC doctors office, the worst was confirmed. McGregor is 14-2 in his career and a perfect 2-0 since joining the promotion.
