Upon further review, Tyron Woodley’s medical suspension has been extended to 180 days.
Tyron Woodley’s initial seven-day medical suspension by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) has been extended to 180 days, according to Marc Raimondi of MMA Fighting.
Woodley, the current UFC welterweight champion, defended his title against Demian Maia at UFC 214 and complained of a torn labrum to Ariel Helwani in a recent edition of The MMA Hour.
‘T-Wood’ claimed to have wrecked his right shoulder in the first round of his championship bout against Maia and, upon further review, CSAC doctors have extended his medical suspension accordingly.
Woodley will be forced to sit out until Jan. 25, 2018, unless cleared by an orthopedist, MMA Fighting states.
The 35-year-old beat Maia in a lackluster decision and has been bombarded with criticism for setting the record for the lowest number of strikes thrown in a five-round title fight.
Woodley threatened to ‘leak’ information about UFC president Dana White if he didn’t apologize for his criticism, but both men talked it out and settled the issue in private.
