UFC FN35’s Derek Brunson Out With Broken Jaw

UFC FN35’s Derek Brunson Out With Broken Jaw

For the most part, those who competed this past Wednesday at UFC Fight Night 35 avoided any lengthy medical suspensions.

However, that didn’t include everybody.

Derek Brunson suffered a broken jaw which will sideline him indefinitely after a battle with Yoel Romero. Brunson will require a doctor’s clearance before returning.

“Thanks 4 taking care of me Dana White, UFC,” Brunson posted on Twitter after his surgery on Friday. “Mouth feelin great, time 2 recover then focus on being the best mixed martial artist I can be.”

The Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission also handed out 45-day suspensions to Cole Miller, and 30-day suspensions to Costa Philippou, Mike Easton, Sam Sicilia, Justin Edwards, Isaac Vallie-Flagg and Trevor Smith.

“Another broke hand,” Miller confirmed on his Twitter page. “On the left this time. At least I got sub of the night. Thanks for a great night. Not nearly as bad as the TJ O’Brien bout.”

 

Everyone else who competed, including main event winner Luke Rockhold, were dealt just the mandatory seven-day medical suspensions.
