Cerrone Headlines UFC 238 Medical Suspensions

A poorly timed blowing of the nose cost Donald Cerrone his chance to fight for the lightweight title, but may have extended his career after UFC 238.

Cerrone, who would have his UFC 238 co-main event stopped at the end of round two due to a massive swelling of his eye after blowing his nose, headlined the UFC 238 medical suspension list.

Cerrone was handed an indefinite suspension pending a doctor’s clearance that would include a clean CT scan of his facial bones and an overall MRI of his head.

The records were leaked this week due to the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation’s Boxing division not releasing medical suspensions publicly.
