Oleinik Facing Six-Month Medical Suspension

Following a first round TKO last weekend by Alistair Overeem, it may be a long time until we see Aleksei Oleinik inside the Octagon.

Oleinik, who main evented the UFC’s return to Russia on April 20th, has been handed a 180 day medical suspension by the UFC, who self-regulated the event from St. Petersburg, Russia.

The Russian fighter was handed a lengthy suspension due to a potential rib fracture, but can return if he’s cleared by an orthopedist.

Also handed a six-month seat on the bench is featherweight competitor Seungwoo Choi, who seems to have suffered a broken nose in his UFC debut loss to Movsar Evloev. Choi must sit for at least 45 days after a mandatory “hard bout” suspension.
