McGregor said in a video that everything went “perfect” and he was “feeling tremendous.”
McGregor’s manager said the surgery lasted three hours and was deemed successful. McGregor is expected to make a full recovery.
“Conor is in recovery after 3 hours of surgery. The surgery was successful repairing fractures of his tibia and fibula. His physicians included Dr. Neal El Attrache from Kerlan-Jobe, Conor’s long time orthopedist and trauma surgeon Dr Milton Little from Cedars-Sinai.
“Both doctors are confident that with time he will make a full recovery. We anticipate his return to the octagon.”
Even though he had a nasty broken leg, McGregor was already targeting a fourth fight with Poirier following Saturday’s loss. Poirier is 2-1 against McGregor.
