Not even a day after the shocking events of UFC 264, Conor McGregor has released an official statement regarding his broken leg.

The Notorious was back in his old ways leading up to the UFC fight against Dustin Poirier where the trash-talking touched on areas in Poirier’s personal life, but it was the threats on Poirier’s life that kept The Diamond laser-focused during the match. While Poirier is certain that it was a checked kick that cracked the bone first, McGregor is standing firm that it was not caused by a check with even coach Kavanagh confirming that it was most likely from Poirier’s elbow when he blocked a hard front kick.

Fans fearing that this could be a career-ending break can rest easy as McGregor’s surgeons at the Cedars-Sinai hospital have revealed that the Irishman will be making a full recovery after a successful three-hour-long surgery. It was also revealed that his tibia required an intramedullary rod while his fibula was repaired with a metal plate. Conor is expected to remain in the hospital for a few more days where he will require crutches for six weeks.
