McGregor sidelined for 10 months

UFC featherweight Conor McGregor didn’t get the news he wanted yesterday after receiving an MRI to see just how damaged his knee was after his recent fight at UFC Fight Night 26.

The Irishman heard his knee pop during the second round of his fight against Max Holloway, but he pushed through the pain and ended up winning a unanimous decision on the judges’ scorecards.

Initially doctors believed that McGregor just suffered a strain in his lateral collateral ligament (LCL), but an MRI done by doctors on Thursday revealed a much more severe injury.

According to Fox Sports Live via Twitter late Thursday night, McGregor was diagnosed with a complete tear of his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) as well as an MCL strain and posterior horn meniscus tear.

It might just be the hardest news for McGregor to receive after storming onto the scene this year and quickly becoming one of the most talked about UFC fighters on the roster.
