McGregor Speaks Out About Injury After Canceled Comeback

“Very tough to be ruled out.”

Conor McGregor has finally broken his silence following the injury that forced the cancellation of his highly anticipated comeback fight against Michael Chandler at UFC 303. The Irish MMA star suffered the injury just before a scheduled press conference on June 3rd in Dublin, which was also abruptly canceled.

McGregor took to Instagram to express his frustration and to thank his fans for their support:

“Very tough to be ruled out of my scheduled return bout. I picked up an injury prior to the press conference that required more time to heal than was available to me. The decision to postpone the fight was not made lightly, but one made in consultation with my doctors, the UFC, and my team. My fans and opponent deserve me at my best for this fight and we will get there! Thank you for the messages of support, I am in good spirits and confident I’ll be back! ?”

Speculation About McGregor’s Future

The cancellation of the press conference, which was set to take place at 3Arena in Dublin, left fans and media in confusion. UFC’s decision to call off the event without a clear explanation sparked various speculations about McGregor’s injury and his future in the sport.

The bout against Michael Chandler was meant to be McGregor’s major return to the Octagon after breaking his leg in July 2021 during his fight with Dustin Poirier. McGregor has not competed since, and his return was highly anticipated by fans around the world.


Record Ticket Sales and Future Expectations

Despite the setback, UFC 303 has already broken records in ticket sales, generating approximately $20 million, making it one of the most profitable events in UFC history. Fans remain hopeful and eagerly await McGregor’s return, confident that he will come back stronger and better prepared.

Looking Forward

During their time as opposing coaches on “The Ultimate Fighter,” McGregor and Chandler built up significant anticipation for their match. Although the injury has delayed the fight, the excitement among fans remains high, with many looking forward to seeing McGregor in top form when he eventually steps back into the Octagon.
