CONOR MCGREGOR will have surgery on a suspected broken ankle tomorrow after his shock loss to Dustin Poirier.
The Irishman was rushed to hospital last night after suffering the horrific injury in the first-round of their trilogy fight.
He was taken by stretcher out of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and moved to a local medical facility.
UFC boss Dana White confirmed the 32-year-old will have an operation to fix the broken ankle and leg injuries.
He said: "All that stuff, you can't do the hypotheticals in this sport.
"It's all about timing and what's going on and what has happened since then.
"We've got to see how this whole thing plays out.
"Conor goes into surgery tomorrow.
"I don't know how long he's going to be out, how much rehab and therapy he's going to need. You know."

McGregor hinted he will NOT retire after the shock loss, with a fourth bout all-but confirmed.
It is not known how long the former UFC world champion will be out for, but it could go into next year.
McGregor had started well in the third and final instalment of his trilogy with Poirier, which was at one win each.
He threw some nasty early kicks and landed some clean punches before it got scrappy and went to the floor.
And late in the first, while trying to throw a punch after getting up off the Octagon, his ankle and leg gave way.
He was in immediate trouble as medics rushed in, shouting "tell them doctor stoppage".
