UFC Won't Punish Conor McGregor Until Legal System Plays Out

Conor Mc Gregor Owen Roddy

If and when Conor McGregor returns to the UFC, the next logical fight would be against current lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

UFC fighter Ray Borg suffered a corneal abrasion and fellow fighter Michael Chiesa suffered a facial laceration due to McGregor's bus attack, as both combatants were deemed unfit to fight in the UFC 223 card earlier this month.

Afterwards, McGregor was arrested and faces three misdemeanor assault charges and a felony criminal mischief charge for his part leading the melee.

How serious of a punishment should McGregor receive from UFC?

The maximum sentence the court could impose would see McGregor spending up to seven years in jail, after he threw a dolly at a UFC bus, shattering glass and injuring several UFC fighters. He's got to be punished by the law first.

"We'll see what happens".

The comments on McGregor's photo were largely speculating as to who would win in a fight if McGregor went up against Khabib which has yet to be confirmed. However, one of the most colorful personalities the promotion has ever seen could finally be making his return this summer, and that's where we will begin our look at some of the biggest UFC headlines for Tuesday, May 1.

It's impossible to know what the UFC might do to McGregor - if anything - given the unique circumstances surrounding this particular incident.

Diaz and McGregor rematched later that year in Las Vegas for a huge rematch, which remains one of the greatest fights of all time.

However, an agreement to see Ultimate Fighter season five victor compete on the eighth pay-per-view card of the year hasn't been agreed.

"No [it will not be in Russia]". "If you do a fight that big, you've got to do it in Vegas", White told TMZ.

There's been a lot of talk about this Khabib fight and it seems to be brewing towards this one.
