Conor McGregor gets six-month medical suspension after KO loss to Dustin Poirier

Conor McGregor could be out for the next six months after the UFC 257 medical suspensions were released.

In the main event of the pay-per-view card, McGregor returned to the Octagon to rematch Dustin Poirier in a very intriguing bout. The Irishman promised another first-round knockout but that did not happen. Instead, it was Poirier who exacted his revenge as he scored a second-round knockout over the Irishman.

The loss was no doubt disappointing for Conor McGregor, but what makes it worse is the fact he may not be able to return for six-months due to the medical suspension.
