According to the former champion, the injury happened three weeks before UFC 229. Conor McGregor wrote, “I broke my foot three weeks out from the bout,” McGregor wrote on Twitter. “I still marched forward however, and also landed the final blows of the night. On his blood brother. I am happy with how the contest went and the lessons learned. In my fighting and more importantly my preparation. Time will reveal all.”

Nurmagomedov ultimately won the fight at UFC 229 by submission.
