It looks like Conor’s return to the octagon will be cut short again.

On the night of June 29-30, a fantastic tournament UFC 303 will take place in Las Vegas (USA). Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler are scheduled to compete in the main event of the evening. All mixed martial arts fans are looking forward to the Irishman’s return to the octagon.

It’s worth noting that for a long time there were doubts that Notorious’ return was real. At first he couldn’t pass the doping test, then Conor’s physical condition raised doubts. While Chandler worked in the gym and shared recordings of training, McGregor constantly posted videos from clubs where it was clear that the Irishman was drinking alcohol.

The Irishman continues to be subjected to constant tests:

Conor is tested for doping more frequently than anyone else. UFC no longer trusts McGregor

The other day the first alarming news about the upcoming tournament was announced. On June 3, a press conference would be held in which the Irishman and the American would exchange “courtesy notes.” But the promotion announced the postponement: “Dear UFC fans! The UFC 303 press conference scheduled for Monday, June 3 in Dublin has been postponed until further notice. We sincerely apologize to all fans who planned to attend this event. As soon as we have additional information about the new date and time, we will share it immediately. Thank you”.

The most frightening thing about all of this is the uncertainty about the timing. It seems that factors that are difficult to predict intervened. And the phrase “until further notice” means that the organization itself still does not understand when Conor and Michael will be able to appear in public. Of course, McGregor immediately addressed his fans and said it wasn’t his fault the event was cut short. But lately there hasn’t been much confidence in Notorious’s words. Especially considering that the Irishman promised to enter the octagon all last year, but in the end his return was constantly postponed.

And now MMA Mania, citing ESPN Deportes, has reported news that further alarms mixed martial arts fans. It was learned that the former UFC champion in two weight classes could have suffered a minor injury. Of course, it is unlikely that the Irishman’s body will be as prepared as possible for his return. Conor hasn’t fought for three years and has gained a lot of weight. In addition, McGregor paid little attention to training and constantly drank alcohol. For this reason it is difficult to count on the availability of the Notorius. And in such a situation, any damage, even minor, can be fatal.

In such a situation, the UFC should start actively looking at possible replacement options for Conor right now. There is confidence that Chandler will accept any challenge, but McGregor can really pull out at the last moment. And it seems that the organization needs to find some ideal option, since a failed replacement can anger and even enrage the fans. There is no doubt that the vast majority of fans who intend to attend the event buy tickets specifically for Conor’s return. And if he pulls out at the last minute and his replacement disappoints, the league could be in big trouble.

It seems that you will have to attract the Irishman with a unique opportunity:

McGregor’s contract with the UFC is about to expire. How does he keep a promotion to his top star?

If Conor pulls out of the fight, he will likely never compete in the UFC again. There is confidence that the patience of the promotion’s bosses is already running out. Too often McGregor has let the organization down lately. And this does not only apply to the return, which is constantly postponed. The notary constantly gets involved in stories that cause loss of reputation. And it will be very interesting to see if Conor goes in a different direction. For example, McGregor is always welcomed with open arms in boxing.
