Conor McGregor will no longer fight Michael Chandler in their originally scheduled match. UFC president Dana White confirmed the news on Thursday, June 13, citing an injury as the reason why the Road House star, 35, had to withdraw. It’s still unclear what Conor’s injury is.

The UFC 303 main event was scheduled to take place on June 29. Instead, a lightweight match will take place between Alex Pereira and Jiri Procházka. A new date for Conor and Michael to fight has not been announced at the time of publication.

Conor’s last fight was in 2021 at UFC 264 against Dustin Poirier. He lost the match after breaking his tibia in the first round.

Over the past several weeks, rumors swirled about Conor and Michael’s fight, with fans speculating whether or not it was going to happen.

Earlier this month, a press conference with the two fighters was canceled because of “obstacles” out of their “control,” Conor tweeted on June 3.

“In consultation with the UFC, today’s press conference was cancelled due to a series of obstacles outside of our control,” he wrote via X. “I apologize to my Irish fans, and fans around the world, for the inconvenience and appreciate all your passion and support. I can’t wait to put on the greatest all-time show in the Octagon.”

In addition to the sport, Conor has been busy with various ventures. In March, his film Road House premiered, starring Jake Gyllenhaal. The action flick was a remake of the original 1989 Patrick Swayze-led movie. In the 2024 film, Conor played Knox, an aggressive enforcer who hunts down Jake’s character, Dalton.
