Conor McGregor is among several athletes that have received medical suspensions after a big night of fights at UFC 202.

McGregor won't be eligible to fight again until February 17, 2017, due to a left foot/ankle fracture. He will be allowed to compete sooner if cleared by an orthopedist.

The featherweight champ defeated Nate Diaz in their UFC 202 rematch via majority decision, but suffered damage to his foot/ankle after multiple checked leg kicks.

Despite his defeat, Diaz is facing a much shorter suspension. He will only be out until September 20, due to a cut above his left eye.
