Bellator 228 medical suspensions: Henry Corrales potentially out six months

20 0

Henry Corrales is out of the Bellator Featherweight World Grand Prix, and it could be a while before he returns to action.

Per documents obtained by MMA Fighting from the California State Athletic Commission, Corrales and five other fighters face potential six-month medical suspensions after competing at Bellator 228 on Saturday in Inglewood, Calif.

Corrales, who lost a unanimous decision to Darrion Caldwell in a Grand Prix opening-round encounter, requires clearance for a left elbow injury before being eligible to compete again. He could also be out for up to 60 days due to a cut over his right eye.

Other fighters potentially out for 180 days pending clearance from a physician include: Weber Almeida (left thumb); Mike Jasper (left ankle); Antonio McKee (right knee); Jonathan Quiroz (right hand); and Emilio Williams (right knee).

Headliners Lyoto Machida and Gegard Mousasi, and featherweight champion Patricio Freire escaped relatively unscathed, requiring only a mandatory week of rest.
