Conor McGregor ‘feeling tremendous’ after three-hour leg surgery


Conor McGregor and his supervisor Audie Attar offered updates Sunday after the light-weight fighter underwent surgical procedure to restore damaged leg bones suffered in Saturday’s UFC 264 loss to Dustin Poirier. 

Attar expressed confidence that McGregor will “make a full restoration.”

McGregor, in the meantime, tweeted that his three-hour-long surgical procedure went “wonderful” and that he’s feeling “great.”

The Irishman then tweeted a video from his hospital mattress, sending a message about Poirier’s “illegitimate win.”

“It was a hell of a primary spherical,” McGregor mentioned. “It might have been good to get again into that second spherical. It’s what it’s. That is the character of the enterprise. A clear break of the tibia, and it was to not be. Dustin, you’ll be able to have fun that illegitimate win all you need, however you’d accomplished nothing in there. That second spherical would have proven all.”

In accordance with ESPN’s Marc Raimondi, UFC president Dana White mentioned that McGregor and Poirier would doubtless meet for a fourth time as soon as McGregor is wholesome.

Poirier additionally mentioned he and McGregor would struggle once more “whether or not it is within the Octagon or on the sidewalk.” Nonetheless, some round UFC imagine McGregor is nearer to retirement after Saturday’s loss, so it is unclear if a fourth bout will ever come to fruition.
