UFC 254 Medical Suspensions: Three Fighters Face Six-Month Sits

UFC 254 took place on October 24. In the headliner, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje did battle in an undisputed UFC Lightweight Title fight. Nurmagomedov won the bout via second-round submission. While both men received seven days mandatory rest, it won’t matter for Khabib as he has retired from MMA competition.

A co-main eventer is one of three fighters on the UFC 254 card facing a six-month suspension. Jared Cannonier must have his left wrist cleared, otherwise he’ll be sidelined for 180 days. Cannonier dropped a unanimous decision to Robert Whittaker, who has been given seven days mandatory rest.

The other two fighters looking at 180-day sits are Nathaniel Wood and Liana Jojua. Wood lost to Casey Kenney via unanimous decision and must have an X-ray for his right hand cleared. As for Jojua, she lost a bout to Miranda Maverick via TKO and must be cleared by an ENT.
