Several UFC 209 Fighters Could Be Suspended Until September

Tyron Woodley successfully defended his welterweight championship at Saturday’s UFC 209 in Las Vegas. He also escaped the medical suspension list that the Nevada Athletic Commission released to MMAWeekly.com on Monday.

His opponent, Stephen Thompson, wasn’t quite as lucky, although his suspension is minimal.

Several other fighters on the card could be out until September, unless they are able to get a doctor’s clearance prior to then.

UFC 209: Woodley vs. Thompson 2 took place on Saturday, March 4, at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
