Gastelum-Holloway Lead UFC 236 Injury Report
Don’t expect quick turnarounds for either Kelvin Gastelum or Max Holloway, as the two fighters have been handed indefinite medical suspensions following UFC 236.
First reported by MMA Fighting, the Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission released the medical suspensions of those who competed on Saturday night in Atlanta.
Both Holloway and Gastelum went to war in the two co-main events of UFC 236, as Gastelum would lose to Israel Adesanya for the interim middleweight title, and featherweight champion Holloway fell to Dustin Poirier for the interim lightweight belt.
Holloway and Gastelum must undergo CT scans and medical clearance before being allowed to return to active competition.
Three fighters, Dwight Grant (right distal bicep), Jalin Turner (right knee), and Wilson Reis (left foot), were handed 180 day suspensions on Monday afternoon.
UFC 236 took place April 13 at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. The night’s main card aired live on ESPN+ pay-per-view.
