The Nevada State Athletic Commission has postponed disciplinary hearings on the suspensions of Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov for a brawl after their bout at UFC 229 in Las Vegas.
Speaking with the Irish Independent, Conor McGregor’s coach, John Kavanagh has suggested that the next time The Notorious steps into the octagon, he might have a new coach by his side.
Kavanagh, who’s worked with the Irish fighter for his entire MMA career, said he didn’t want McGregor to risk himself unnecessarily, citing his family:
“He has a wife and two kids now, and I don’t want him taking more hits than he needs to. Khabib hit him with a punch in that fight that he has never been hit with in his career. And even Superman slows down at some stage”.
It, however, remains unclear when McGregor will be returning to the cage – he’s been suspended for his involvement in a wild brawl following the bout with Nurmagomedov in October, with the disciplinary hearing set for late January.
Social media users suggested that Conor will never return to the octagon again, with some even trying to predict McGregor’s future actions.
