McGregor fought this past Saturday at UFC Fight Night 26 defeating Max Holloway by unanimous decision. The Irishman stated after the fight that he felt a pop in his knee during the fight and in the proceeding days had thought he had suffered an LCL injury.
The surging featherweight in recent days had made inflammatory comments towards top contenders in the featherweight division including UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo.
We wish McGregor the best in his recovery.
