Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor Medical Suspensions

On Saturday night, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor went toe-to-toe at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, with Mayweather earning a tenth-round TKO victory over the UFC champion.

McGregor started out looking impressive as Mayweather took the first three rounds to feel out his opponent, before turning things up a notch and securing the win.

Now that the fight is in the books and both men are hundreds of millions of dollars richer, it’s time to see how long they will have to wait until they are able to return to action. Of course, Mayweather is now officially retired, so the real attention is on how long McGregor will be forced to stay on the sidelines.

Monday, the Nevada State Athletic Commission released their suspensions with McGregor suspended until Oct. 26, with no contact until Oct. 11.

Nathan Cleverly was the only other fighter on the pay-per-view card to receive a medical ban.
