Former UFC lightweight champ Conor McGregor was due to host a special charity wheelchair boxing event on September 11th at the Clayton Hotel in Galway, Ireland, featuring local comedian and “notorious” impressionist Al Foran.
Don’t roll out the red
carpet Ramp just barely.
“Unfortunately the fight is over folks, but it will still be a fantastic night for a great cause as Stevo and Paddy compete in the main event,” Foran wrote on Twitter. “I will still be there in some capacity during the night!”
McGregor will remain on hold until the end of the year on the advice of his doctor and physical therapist. “Mystic Mac” suffered a devastating broken leg against Dustin Poirier at the UFC 264 Pay-Per-View (PPV) Main Event in Las Vegas, Nevada last month.
“Guys, the September date is too early for me,” said McGregor. “I’m still recovering. My doctor / physiotherapy team out here advises me to stay. I don’t expect the end of October at the earliest. But maybe also November / December. A specific date is currently difficult to say. But I’m in! Please wait for me. “
McGregor, who is no stranger to charity headlines, has dropped three of his last four and may not be given medical clearance to return his cage fights until the end of 2022. In his absence, Poirier will challenge Charles Oliveira for the 155-pound belt later one year.
