The blockbuster UFC 202 card is now in the rearview mirror as the event took place this past Saturday (August 20, 2016) live on pay-per-view from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main event featured a highly-anticipated rematch between No. 5-ranked lightweight Nate Diaz and reigning featherweight champion Conor McGregor. McGregor ended up taking home a majority decision after a five round war, but he may not have left the Octagon completely unscathed.

McGregor showed up to the post-fight press conference on crutches due to an apparent leg injury, and it’s now clear that he could potentially be sidelined until 2017 according to the official UFC 202 medical suspensions. However, it’s also very possible that the Irishman could be cleared earlier, as he said that his leg was simply sore from the plethora of leg kicks he threw throughout the bout.
