UFC 201 medical suspensions and injuries: Robbie Lawler sat following knockout loss to Tyron Woodley

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Robbie Lawler will be taking a short vacation following his knockout loss to Tyron Woodley (watch it) at the UFC 201 pay-per-view (PPV) last Saturday night (July 30, 2016) in Atlanta, Georgia.

Georgia Athletic and Entertainment Commission saw to that.

But “Ruthless” isn’t the only fighter facing a medical suspension after last weekend’s mixed martial arts (MMA) card in “The Peach State.” Ryan Benoit, in particular, was hit the hardest and could be out of action for up to six months, pending a physician’s clearance.

Here are the complete UFC 201 injuries and medical suspensions (via MMA Fighting):

Ryan Benoit: Suspended 180 days or must be cleared by physician
Robbie Lawler: Suspended 45 days, 30 days no contact
Matt Brown: Suspended 45 days, 30 days no contact
Francisco Rivera: Suspended 45 days, 30 days no contact
Ed Herman: Suspended 45 days, 30 days no contact
Damian Grabowski: Suspended 45 days, 30 days no contact
Cesar Arzamendia: Suspended 45 days, 30 days no contact
Karolina Kowalkiewicz: Suspended 30 days, 21 days no contact
Erik Perez: Suspended 30 days, 21 days no contact
Fredy Serrano: Suspended 30 days, 21 days no contact
Ross Pearson: Suspended 30 days, 21 days no contact
Michael Graves: Suspended 30 days, 21 days no contact
Bojan Velickovic: Suspended 30 days, 21 days no contact

Just a quick reminder: Fighters often return to action much quicker once doctors give them the green light. The lengthy suspensions are just a precaution in most cases. In addition, not all injuries are recorded during the post-fight examination and often times surface in follow-up tests.
