Following the results of the exciting boxing match between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather, “The Notorious” will not be allowed to immediately get back to competition even if he wanted to.

McGregor, who suffered a TKO loss in the 10th round against the undefeated Floyd Mayweather in the main event of the night was served a medical suspension for a minimum of 60 days. McGregor will not be able to compete until October 26 with no contact until October 11, per the NAC. Fortunately, McGregor has stated previously that he had plans to fight again in December which should give the UFC lightweight champion proper preparation time for a training camp. This timeline lines up well for the UFC’s last pay-per-view card of the year, UFC 219, which is scheduled to take place on December 30.

The longest potential medical suspensions from the event were for 180 days given to Juan Heraldez and Jose Miguel Borrego. Both fighters must be cleared by an orthopedic doctor for injuries suffered in their contests.

The full list of suspensions and terms from the NAC are as follows:

  • Conor McGregor: Suspended until 10/26, no contact until 10/11
  • Nathan Cleverly: Suspended until 10/11, no contact until 09/26
  • Thomas Dulorme: Suspended until 09/26, no contact until 09/17
  • Juan Heraldez: Requires x-ray of left hand, if positive then must be cleared by orthopedic doctor or no contest until 02/23/18; minimum suspension of no contest until 10/11, no contact until 09/26
  • Jose Miguel Borrego: Requires MRI on left knee within 10 days, if positive then must be cleared by orthopedic doctor or no contest until 02/23/18; minimum suspension of no contest until 09/26, no contact until 09/17
