Tim Means Handed Six Month Suspension Following UFC Fight Night 106

Kelvin Gastelum represented the new guard in his UFC Fight Night 106 main event knockout of former light heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort on Saturday in Brazil.

Gastelum made quick work of Belfort, taking him out in the opening minutes of the fight. Gastelum avoided any damage, escaping the medical suspension list. Belfort wasn’t so lucky. Due to the knockout loss, he landed a 45-day suspension with no contact for 30 days.

That would still allow Belfort plenty of time to achieve his goal of fighting the final fight of his current contract at UFC 212 on June 3 in Rio.

Only one fighter received more than a 60-day suspension when the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission released the UFC Fight Night 106 medical suspensions to MMAWeekly.com on Monday.

Tim Means was the lone fighter to be assigned a 180-day suspension. If he gets an x-ray of his right foot and clearance by a doctor, Means faces a minimum 30-day suspension.

Every fighter on the card received a minimum mandatory rest period of 14 days with no contact for 7 days.
