Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) issued its list of injuries and medical suspensions earlier this afternoon for the mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters who participated at UFC 200, which took place last Saturday night (July 9, 2016) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
And there were a few hefty sentences.
Chief among them was Miesha Tate, who could be sat until January 2017 after she suffered a broken nose at the hands of Amanda Nunes during their headlining fight that saw “Cupcake” cough up her women’s Bantamweight strap (watch highlights here).
Also, Travis Browne and Raphael Assuncao could potentially be benched until the new year after suffering injuries to their wrist and nose, receptively, during their contests against Cain Velasquez and T.J. Dillashaw.
