On a relatively quiet weekend of boxing one former professional boxer Conor McGregor returned to action this weekend in Las Vegas.

In a rematch he lost a little over six months ago in the UFC it proved to be the same again second time round.

Quicker this time.

More brutal and a horrific injury to his ankle:

McGregor had not started the fight well and the injury then quickly ended it.

A speedy recovery for him.

In terms of his plans to get into boxing, this could actually in a way help them next year.

It is unclear after this if he would return to the UFC and if down the line he did step into boxing, no doubt he could get some interesting fights.

As a novice professional to start off.

He has only fought once as a professional boxer at this time.

A TKO loss to Floyd Mayweather a number of years ago.
