UFC 257 Medical Suspensions: Conor McGregor Faces Lengthy Layoff

The UFC 257 medical suspensions are in, and if they hold up, it could be a long time before we see Conor McGregor compete again.

Following his loss to Dustin Poirier at UFC 257, Conor McGregor will now be sidelined for six months and cannot have contact training for 30 days. A six-month layoff would certainly damage McGregor’s plan of having a very active 2021, but that is what would happen if McGregor does not receive a negative result from an X-ray on his right tibula/fibula. Poirier, on the contrary, is only suspended for seven days.

The other two lengthy medical suspensions are for Matt Frevola and Andrew Sanchez, who match McGregor’s six-month length. Like McGregor, both fighters require negative X-rays for their injured parts to shorten their suspension length.
