Conor McGregor suffered a first round TKO defeat tonight in Las Vegas and will need to regroup after a substantial injury to his ankle and leg.

It appears he will be out of action as a professional fighter for some time.

It is not clear exactly where the initial injury happened but the results of it were clear.

A speedy and healthy recovery to him.

As for his planned venture again into boxing, it could be a while yet before that happens.

Michael Benson’s reactions and comments of his posting on the fight indicative that the boxing world still has considerable interest in McGregor:

Could a Manny Pacquiao or Jake Paul vs McGregor fight happen in boxing down the road?

Quite possibly.

As for now, get well soon to McGregor with the injury.
