If you're a fan of Conor McGregor, you will need to wait 10 months to watch him fight again

Apparently Conor McGregor beat Max Holloway so brutally at UFC on FOX Sports 1/UFC Fight Night/UFC Boston that his ACL couldn't keep up with his performance which will force him to be sidelined for 10 months while he recovers from a knee injury. Dana White announced the unfortunate news tonight on FOX Sports Live, stating he has a complete ACL tear and not just a 'knee pop' that McGregor stated in the post-fight interview.

That's brutal for McGregor fans across the world. In retrospect, our Dethrone contest to win tickets to UFC Boston and a Conor McGregor walk-out shirt should have been 'create your own Irish limerick' for a chance to win prizes. Damn, if I had a genie in a lamp that would undoubtedly be my wish. Well, that and for Conor McGregor to not have a torn ACL. On my third wish I'll just ask for three more wishes. Problem solved.

Well wishes to Conor McGregor on his 10-month layoff from MMA. Get into the Assassin's Creed series, that should keep you occupied.

I will personally come to Swedan, or wherever he's from, and rub his knee down until the wee hours of the morning with my gentle man touch. I'll also put grapes into his mouth while he's watching old Sanford & Son episodes. I know what your thinking, but, not my grapes silly, Mother Nature's grapes....

most exciting because the press loves him, he has a unique style, hes pretty fucking funny...

he fought and dominated one round then he controlled a pretty good fighter for the last 2 because he fucked up his knee..while still managing to get side control and mount ...

The dude is fun to listen to post fight, but I don't really know why all the sites are making sound like he destroyed Holloway... The dude basically tried to mimic Diaz the whole fight and threw in some gay Jon Jones type shit too. All while not putting away someone it was obvi he was stronger and faster than.... The hype is a little redic right now around this guy.

lol at people complaining that he didnt finish when he torn his acl, strained the mcl, and tore his meniscus..a lot of fighters would have quit but he controlled holloway for 2 more rounds while getting to mount.

10 months?! Guys, do you know what this means?! McGregor - In Dublin - Comeback of all comebacks. Dana confirmed UFC in dublin in the 3rd quarter of next year, around the time Conor should be fit and fighting again.
