Edgar Headlines UFC Busan Suspensions After KO

Last-minute replacement Frankie Edgar looked to tame the Korean Zombie last weekend at UFC Busan, but the former lightweight champion would not make it out of the first round.

Edgar, who stepped in for former featherweight title contender Brian Ortega for last weekend’s 2019 finale in Busan, South Korea, is facing a six-month medical suspension following the KO.

Per MixedMartialArts.com, Edgar suffered damage to his right orbital bone, that mandates a provisional suspension, that will require clearance from an oral and maxillofacial doctor prior to his return to action.weekend’s card.

Aleksandar Rakic (left shin hematoma), Doo Ho Choi (left wrist), Mike Rodriguez (dental), Heili Alateng (right foot), and Ryan Benoit (right thumb) also join Edgar on the bench for a potential 180 days pending clearance from a physician.
