McGregor Blames UFC 229 Loss On Broken Foot, Plans Return

Less than a month ago, Conor McGregor announced his retirement, that retirement may be short-lived, as the former double champion may plan a return to the Octagon.

While talking to fans on his very active Twitter account, McGregor revealed that he suffered a serious injury just a month before his UFC 229 loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov.

“I broke my foot 3 weeks out from the bout,” McGregor tweeted. “I still marched forward however, and also landed the final blows of the night. On his blood brother. I am happy with how the contest went and the lessons learned. In my fighting and more importantly my preparation. Time will reveal all.”

McGregor has been vocal for not only a fight with Nurmagomedov, but defending his actions inside the cage in their first fight and that if there is a rematch, McGregor would rededicate himself to being the best at lightweight.



McGregor has been retired for less than a month after negotiations between himself and the UFC broke down over McGregor wanting equity in the organization.
