McGregor is listed on the Nevada State Athletic Commissions injury suspension list with a “foot/ankle fracture” and must be cleared by an orthopedic doctor in order to fight again before Feb. 17, 2017, which seems likely. He will serve a minimum suspension of two months with the earliest he can return being Oct. 20, even if cleared by a doctor. Diaz has been given an injury suspension of one month for a severe cut above his left eye. Diaz cannot take contact until Sept. 11 nor fight until Sept. 20, though he won’t fight before then.
McGregor reveals he got a tooth embedded in his finger during training for his fight with Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.
I was sparring a 90kg fighter, Ion Pascu, they call him the bomber. Like me, he sometimes spars with no gumshield…I smacked him with a clean shot, and his tooth embedded into my knuckle. Welcome to the fight game, the real fight game. You’ve got to get in and do it, it is what it is.
