UFC 241 Injuries: Seven Face Six-Month Suspensions

Nearly half of the medical suspensions set from UFC 241 can see fighters sitting out a maximum of six months, as the California State Athletic Commission handed down their rulings on Monday.

Initially reported by MMA Fighting, main eventer’s Stipe Miocic (60 days) and Daniel Cormier (45 days), were handed less severe restrictions by CSAC, with Cormier needing to go 30 days with no contact due to being knocked out by Miocic, and the new champion sat for a similar time due to a “hard bout” and the longer 60 day bid due to a left eye laceration.

Co-main event Anthony Pettis is the biggest name to get a potential six-month suspension due to a possible fracture to his foot and right orbital bone in his decision loss to Nate Diaz, who must sit 60 days due to a right eye laceration.
