UFC 205 medical suspensions and injuries: Chris Weidman sat just 60 days for split wig

106 0

New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) issued its list of injuries and medical suspensions on Wednesday for the mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters who participated in UFC 205, which took place last Saturday night (Nov. 12, 2016) inside Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Conor McGregor won’t miss any time after his second-round knockout win over Eddie Alvarez in the UFC 205 main event (watch it). Unless, of course, he opts to stay home for his upcoming paternity leave.

Elsewhere on the card, Chris Weidman will be sat for just 60 days, despite his near-death experience at the hands (and knees) of Yoel Romero (replay). Former bantamweight champion Miesha Tate earned some time off as well, but that doesn’t really matter in the wake of her sudden retirement.

Complete UFC 205 medical suspensions, courtesy of MMA Fighting, below:

Vicente Luque suspended indefinitely pending NYSAC clearance
Chris Weidman suspended a minimum 60 days pending NYSAC clearance
Belal Muhammad suspended a minimum 60 days pending NYSAC clearance
Rafael Natal suspended a minimum 60 days pending NYSAC clearance
Eddie Alvarez suspended a minimum 30 days pending NYSAC clearance
Stephen Thompson suspended a minimum 30 days pending NYSAC clearance
Joanna Jedrzejczyk suspended 30 days
Karolina Kowalkiewicz suspended 30 days
Meisha Tate suspended a minimum 30 days pending NYSAC clearance
Michael Johnson suspended 30 days
Jim Miller suspended a minimum 30 days pending NYSAC clearance
Liz Carmouche suspended a minimum 30 days pending NYSAC clearance

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.
