Conor McGregor has a bit of time to consider his options after earning an estimated £75m from his ‘fight of the century’ with Floyd Mayweather last weekend.
He has at least two months before he is allowed anywhere near a combat sport.
After being clubbed before being finally stopped against Mayweather in the 10th round, McGregor is officially banned from professional sport on medical grounds.
He cannot punch or roundhouse anyone until after the end of the ban on October 26. And he is banned from all physical contact until October 11.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission, who granted a licence for his Las Vegas fight with Mayweather, will give the Irishman a medical when the ban ends to ensure he is fit to resume MMA or boxing.
Nevada State Athletic Commission have also praised referee Robert Byrd for opting to stop the fight,
“Robert did an excellent job,” said Bob Bennett, executive director for the Nevada State Athletic Commission.[
“He was just hit popping him, lefts and rights, it was definitely time to stop that fight and I don’t think we could have asked anymore from Robert.”
