UFC 175 Suspensions: Several Fighters Given Medical Breaks

ufc 175

UFC 175 was a rough night for many, including several of the big winners. Chris Weidman, Ronda Rousey and others were all handed medical suspensions by the Nevada Athletic Commission recently.

Weidman, who defended his middleweight title with a decision win over Lyoto Machida, has a minimum suspension until August for an assortment of injuries. In fact, Weidman must be cleared before he can return to action by a doctor, otherwise he’ll be suspended until next year.

Rousey, a co-main event winner over Alexis Davis in a successful defense of her bantamweight crown, must have her hand checked out before returning to action anytime before January. “Rowdy” made it known that she already received stitches in the hand the night of the fight, and also plans to have her knee looked at in the coming days and weeks.

Machida, Davis, Uriah Hall and others were all given medical suspensions. The complete list can be viewed below:

    Why has this website ignored Stephan struve’s medical situation?

    I don’t know why there’s nothing on it on the site, but I’d guess the reason that he’s not listed on this article is because he didn’t end up actually competing on the card. I could be completely wrong though, maybe they’re still evaluating him to determine the suspension.

    And from the little bit that I’ve found on the matter, it doesn’t look like it was related to his heart. Struve made a statement and he makes it sound like his nerves got to him and caused a panic attack of some kind. Whatever the cause, I hope he gets better and can make it back to the octagon sometime. He’s a talented kid and seems to be a good guy as well.

    Man Weidman, Ronda and Faber got messed up worse then I thought they did. I knew Weidman would have rib troubles, that was nasty bruising machida gave him with those kicks, didn’t know it was his elbow and jaw as well though. Ronda possibly being out that long kinda throws a wrench in a lot of Dana’s plans I bet, didn’t even know Faber had gotten some kind of rib injury

    Also how tough is Machida that he got busted open on two spots of his face, and yet he’s not out until possibly Jan 2nd? Both men were in a battle though, they both had blooming black eyes after the fight
