UFC Fight Island 6 Medical Suspensions: Two Fighters Face Six-Month Sits
The UFC Fight Island 6 medical suspensions are in.
The event was held this past Saturday night, October 17. In the main event, featherweights Brian Ortega and Chan Sung Jung did battle. UFC President Dana White said the winner of this fight will challenge Alex Volkanovski for the UFC Featherweight Championship.
Ortega made the most of his opportunity for another shot at UFC gold. He showcased his improved striking to thwart the “Korean Zombie” for five rounds. Ortega won the bout via unanimous decision. Ortega will sit for 30 days due to a “hard bout,” while Jung is suspended for 45 days due to a right eyelid laceration.
James Krause and Mark Striegl are facing the lengthiest sits. Krause defeated Claudio Silva but injured his knee and he will be sidelined for 180 days unless an MRI of his right knee clears him. Striegl was stopped by Said Nurmagomedov and he must be cleared by an OMF, otherwise, he’ll also be shelved for 180 days.
