Conor McGregor is still planning a wheelchair fight, convinced that disability can’t come off that easily

Conor McGregor loves to fight. We know from the video of him punching an elderly man in a Dublin pub a few years ago and the fact that if you give him enough money he will fight just about anyone. With the explosion of his whiskey brand (and the sale that followed), he probably doesn’t even really need the money anymore. He just likes a good fight. That’s why it’s no surprise that the pride of Dublin will be fighting in a charity wheelchair boxing match. Yes, you read that right.

The former UFC champion recently broke his leg in a fight with Dustin Poirier. But the wheelchair boxing match has nothing to do with the fighter being on his feet for a while now. Originally scheduled for September 11, he was to fight Al Foran. But since McGregor needs more time to prepare, he recently tweeted that he’s moving the fight to October, November, or even December.

While we understand he is recovering from his injury, we kind of assumed that was the reason he was fighting in a wheelchair boxing match. Apparently, it has nothing to do with it. Maybe the ex-champion realized the fight wouldn’t be as easy as expected and he didn’t want to be embarrassed.

We do not know. All we know is that we’ll definitely be listening to see this hard-hitting action whenever it takes place. Conor McGregor is the type of show we would pay a ticket for every time.
