Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) issued its list of injuries and medical suspensions on Monday for the mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters who participated in UFC 196, which took place last Saturday night (March 5, 2016) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Conor McGregor, despite a second round loss by way of submission, will not be spending any time on the sidelines, which frees him up for the upcoming UFC 200 mega event in July. Nate Diaz, however, was busted up en route to his bookie-busting upset, and will ride the pine until 4/20.
Elsewhere on the card, Miesha Tate and Holly Holm also escaped any sort of suspension after their four-and-a-half rounds of action. The same cannot be said for Swedish “Sledgehammer” Ilir Latifi, who could be out until September with a bum toe.
